Quick and easy meals are usually the order of the day when it comes to university cooking.
Trying to cook something super speedy while keeping it reasonably healthy is actually really easy.
Here are a few of our favourite staples we think every student should know about…
A tomatoey pasta bake will for sure be one of those meals you cook week in week out. We love this fresh one with minimal ingredients and added frankfurters.
Step away from the soup can and give this easy soup recipe a go.
Healthy, fresh, cheap and versatile. Easy to portion up and chuck in the freezer for those days when you just NEED some soup.
If you like a good old crispy jacket spud then it’s not exactly the quickest meal ever BUT bung it in the oven for an hour and leave it be.
You can pimp up your potato in so many different ways too. Give these fillings a go…
* Spicy Turkey
* Pizza Baked Potato
* Homemade Baked Beans
* Broccoli & Cheese
* Three Cheese & Onion
* Spicy Tuna & Cottage Cheese
* Shepherds Pie Potatoes
Fajitas are a great meal to cook for multiple people.
Let everybody dig in and choose their own fillings.
– Vegan Chickpea Curry
When you are in the mood for a scrummy curry, this is the one.
It only takes 25minutes to make from start to finish and absolutely hits the spot. If you are feeling adventurous, you could even have a go at making some flatbread to go with it. YUM!
– Breakfast Options
Let’s not forget about the most important meal of the day now shall we?
Step away from the sugar-laden cereal and opt for something much more substantial. Try these out for something different…

Living at The Junxion has been a very homely experience for me, as from moving in on my first year of university I was a little nervous about living on my own so far away from my home in Liverpool; but that all change once I moved into my new room, as the buildings interior design gives off such a relaxing vibe that will allow you to study in peace. Although the staff in the building where so very comforting to speak to and will offer guidance on pretty much anything, as they are always there to help. Other than that I would highly recommend The Junxion to anyone as I am currently a second year living with my friend at The Junxion and I couldn’t feel more at home.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
Millstone is a brilliant place to live, Ive just book for my 3rd year. The staff are kind and caring. I have love living at Millstone as it has given me independence and a bigger family.
Highly recommend Mezzino Student living, it’s furnished to a high standard and is in the heart of the student area. Has very helpful staff and it’s well run in the office.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
