for a vegetarian cookbook that is dorm room friendly...
I know most of you are probably not vegetarians, but if you've happened to see one it'd be cool to know about it. It's hard (not imposable, but infinitely more difficult) to be healthy when all you've got is a microwave and a mini fridge...
Thanks a bunch :)
Hello! Im not a vegetarian but I have a bunch of friends that are vegetarians and vegans. but you can try spaghetti with an oregano/basil sauce. Or a crock pot works wonders! Honestly you can try many of the stews they have online and just leave out the meat and subsistue with beans. This is a recipe I make all the time and when my vege friends want some I just leave out the meat when I make it and they love it! ps. I dunno if the beef broth is okay with you. If not you can use beef bullion or vege broth. I hoped this helped a little bit!Ingredients:
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's® Condensed Tomato Soup (Regular, Healthy Request® or 25% Less Sodium)
1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell's® Condensed Beef Broth
1/2 cup Burgundy wine or other dry red wine or water
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed ( I get mine at the $1 store)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 can (about 14 1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with Italian herbs
3 large carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 2 cups)
2 cans (about 16 ounces each) white kidney beans (cannellini), rinsed and drained
Stir the soup, broth, wine, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, tomatoes, carrots and beef in a 3 1/2-quart slow cooker.
Stir in the beans. Turn the heat to HIGH. Cook for 10 minutes or until the mixture is hot.
* Or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.
ok, so it's not a vegetarian cookbook, but it has a LOT of vegetarian recipes and a lot of it can be cooked in the microwave! I just got it at walmart, I havent made anything out of it yet but it looks pretty cool. It's called Hungry Girl - Recipes and Survival Strategies for Guilt-Free Eating in the Real World. Go to hungry-girl.com :)
I have a book called Student's Vegetarian Cookbook by Carole Raymond. I'm not sure how mircowave friendly it is but there are recipes that don't require cooking... and you can always adapt. I'm not sure where I got it. In fact, it may have been a gift.
I know at my school (I go to McMaster in Ontario) the campus bookstore has a section of cookbooks, and at least some are specifically for students.
Hope this helped some.
My friend got me a book called PETA's Vegan College Cookbook. You could definitely modify some of the recipes to add dairy if you want, and almost every recipe has under 5 ingredients and EVERYTHING in it can be made in a microwave. It's even a hit with my very, very meat loving little brother. I highly recommend it :) Good luck!
have u tried cutting up zucchini into thin strips and steaming it in a microwave container then add a tomato based sauce, spinach, kidney beans and then heat it all up. I love it :)
