Easy Student Recipes For University

Becoming a student for the first time is an exciting experience. But it is also more often than not the first time young people are out in the big wide world fending for themselves. 

That means that eating 3 solid meals a day can prove sometimes, well, a little difficult. Convenience and efficiency are more often than not the order of the day, at least stereotypically, for your average student. 

But that doesn’t have to be the case. Believe it or not, it is possible to live the student lifestyle and eat meals that are cheap and easy, perfect as comfort food, and even good for you.

Here are 3 handy student recipes that can be a lifesaver when it comes to food options that meet your student budget.

 

1 - Pasta or Spaghetti Bolognese 


A pasta bolognese or Spaghetti dish is a tasty, simple option after a long day on campus.

Cook some delicious pasta in boiling water for roughly 15 minutes, then heat up and add some delicious Dolmio Bolognese Original Sauce and you have yourself a delicious student meal.

 

2 - Delicious Soups

Sometimes the simple things are the best. A warming bowl of soup is a convenient meal option for students, especially during the winter months or if you’re still feeling a little fragile from the night before.

Poundstretcher has a host of soup options that can be warmed up easily and served with bread or salad.

Pick from our Baxters range, which includes chicken broth, tomato and minestrone flavours. 


We also have handy Heinz Soup of the Day packs that are packed with flavour. You can buy tomato, roasted garlic and black pepper, as well as green garden vegetable flavours at Poundstretcher 

 

3 - Vesta Ready Meals

Wanting full meals that don’t take an age to create? A ready meal from Vesta can provide that perfect dinner option for students when time is at a premium.

Poundstretcher stocks Vesta ready meals that include beef curry, chow mein and paella that are a great option for your dinner plate and your freezer. 

These are quick and easy to cook and provide a handy lunch or dinner option.

Hopefully, if you've started university, this list of easy recipes for students will provide a little culinary inspiration and show that Poundstretcher can be your go-to store for handy food items.
