1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: College/Cheap, fast, but not horribly unhealthy ---for Vegetarians!!! on: December 06, 2012 11:41:49 AM
My quickbread is fast, cheap and probably not that unhealthy.

You'd need:
-  1 1/2 cup flour (I usually use white, but I think whole wheat would be interesting)
-  1 tsp. baking powder
-  1/2 tsp. salt (can use fancy salt, but I'm sticking with good old table salt, because hey, that's what I have)
-  1 1/2 tsp herbs/spices of choice (I used dill in my latest batch...pretty satisfying)
-  1 cup ice cold h20
-  silicone muffin/cupcake pan

Mix dry together, and add cold water to the mixture.  Stir until a loose batter forms, and spoon into a silicone muffin/cupcake pan until halfway full.  Bake at 400 degrees until risen and nicely brown on top.  Makes a crusty topped quickbread with a english muffin like moist inside.  They also freeze nicely as well!  Makes about five large rolls or six smaller ones.  Cheesy

Made this tonight, very good! Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, nom! (and yes I made an account just to tell you that  Wink)

My student standby's are:
- Tomato kidney bean soup (fry a (red) onion, add a can of chopped tomatoes, a can of kidney beans, a can of water, chilli powder, p/s to taste), very easy, filling and good! If I have a bit more money I add salami or chorizo as well!
- Baked potato with salsa/butter/cheese/coleslaw/whatever I've got lying around - can't go wrong
- Stir fry (I buy cheap frozen stir fry veg (or cut up carrots and mushrooms), eat it with rice or noodles and soysauce and honey)
- Baked beans on toast (cheap as chips + apparently healthy as well)
- Special cheese on toast (I mix the end bits of cheese with a little mayo, mustard, p/s and milk which I spread on bread then whack it under the grill) - this is when I have nothing else lying around, however it's so good I still crave it even when I'm not watching every penny
- Tomato and cucumber salad with bread (I cut up the tomato and cucumber, add whatever herbs I want which is mostly oregano then add olive oil (if I have it) and some sort of vinegar (red wine, apple cider and balsamic all work well and can be found very cheap in Aldi/Lidl/Dollarstore/Poundland)
