Student life can be difficult! As a student, you have to keep pace with your studies, work and social life, while making sure you eat properly. Here are a few ideas for both breakfast and late lunch that you may find interesting and helpful. Here are a few very simple and quick recipes to help you survive!
300g beetroot (already cooked)
1 small red onion (diced)
2-3 tbsp yoghurt
Pumpkin seeds (optional)
To make food preparation as quick as possible, you can buy cooked beetroots. Their nutritional content remains the same and it saves you so much time. Dice red onion finely and cut beetroots into small pieces. Heat up beetroots in a pot, stirring frequently. In the meantime, fry onion till caramelized. Once onion is ready, add it to beetroots and leave on heat for a while. All you need to do now is blend all the ingredients until smooth. Add some yoghurt and pumpkin seeds and enjoy.
Corn Soup with Millet and Chicken
1 small onion
2 garlic cloves
1L chicken stock
½ tsp turmeric
400g corn (1 can)
300g chicken breast
80ml soured cream
Salt, black pepper
Dice the onion, then press the garlic through a garlic press and fry them for 2 minutes. Add hot chicken stock and bring it to boil. Add rinsed millet and cook without cover for around 10 minutes. Meanwhile, season with turmeric, salt and black pepper. Add drained corn, and cook for additional 5 minutes. Cut chicken breast into pieces and add it to boiling soup. Mix in soured cream once the chicken is cooked. Take it off heat and enjoy!
Red Lentil and Cauliflower Soup
1 small onion (diced)
¼ cup red lentils (rinsed)
1L vegetable stock
Oil (of your kind)
Heat up oil in a pan and cook onion till caramelized. Cut cauliflower into florets and rinse red lentils. Move all the ingredients into a pot with vegetable stock and bring to boil. Simmer under cover until tender. Once it’s cooked, blend it all together, and that’s it - as simple as that!
1 wholegrain bun
Heat up oil and fry an egg. Toast a bun while mashing an avocado with a fork. Once the bun is ready, spread the avocado paste on it, place a fried egg on top and sprinkle some mixed herbs.
Milk (either whole milk or plant milk)
Pour milk into a bowl and add cocoa powder. Mix it all together very thoroughly. Add your favourite fruit and all other ingredients. Remember, it’s just my proposition and my idea for super quick and extremely simple breakfast but you can play with it. If you exercise a lot, add some protein powder as well! Just take it easy, it’s already full of proteins!
