Living in a dorm definitely limits your options as far as cooking. My microwave is basically the only appliance that I can use (without having to go up and down five flights of stairs to get a key to the kitchenette, and having to rent pots and pans). However, with just a few ingredients and a microwave, you can make pasta (I’m not talking Ramen noodles!), granola bars, truffles, cake… the list is endless with a simple Google search.
Some other ideas for easy dorm room snacks/meals:
- peanut butter and apples
- hummus and carrots or broccoli
- baked potatoes (yes, you can make them in the microwave!)
- cheese (with crackers or fruit)
- soup from a can/to go cup
