    Everyone knows students are good at experimenting when it comes to cooking! However, I'm terrible at cooking to be perfectly honest. So, if anyone out there has come across some simple and preferably cheap dishes - do share!

    Cous Cous. Tastes bland on its own but you can add anything to it. Simple enough. (All you need to do to cook it is add hot water).

    Cous Cous/ rice/ pasta are great staples to have in. Buying or making a basic tomato sauce is useful too as you can use it as a base for dishes and then throw in vegetables or cheese or whatever you want to use up.

    Omlettes are one of the quickest and easiest things to make I think and you can put in anything (potato is nice in them for a more filling meal).

    Grate cheese, add to top.

    Frozen food, all you need to do is put them in the oven at the set temp and wait for the amount of time (normally longer) and serve, easy enough. Cooking burgers and stuff is also easy...

    oo all i do sometimes is get some corned beef,onions,peppers,sweet corn,some veg if you like,chop everything up,fry it,and add it rice and you're good to go. if you want a sauce to eat with the rice,you can use tomato sauce and fry the stuff in it as well.

    The easiest meal of all is jacket potato. Just pop it in the oven then forget about it for a couple of hours. (DO NOT MICROWAVE IT!!! YUCK!)

    This is good even for people who think that easy means quick, cause you don't have to actively cook it for two hours. Let your oven do the work and do whatever you want (watch neighbours, the simpsons and hollyoaks )

    Oven dish
    Layer of tuna on the bottom (drained, obviously)
    Layer of baked beans in the middle
    Layer of mashed potato on top
    Grated cheese on top (Optional, but awesome)
    Whack it in the oven as hot as it'll go until the top goes brown. Bingo. Quality meal.

    :eek: You sir, are a genius. I have a tin of tuna and a tin of baked beans to use up, that sounds perfect! Roughly how long do you think it would take to cook?

    Normally half an hour should do it. Since all of the stuff's cooked already, it doesn't make too much difference, but it's nicer when it's gone a bit browner on top. It doesn't half fill you up too
