Dorm room cooking: Mix it up

by Katie Schroeder – Features Editor

Students of Hesston college are cooking more than just the typical Ramen noodles, mac and cheese, and Pizza Rolls. Students have come up with a few recipes to venture away from the typical college student cuisine. Below are some recipes that may change your dorm room food experiences.

Guacamole: Contributed by Eleya Raim

  • 2 Avocados

  • 3-4 Tomatoes

  • 1/2 Onion

  • 1/2-1 Jalapeño

  • Salt  (to taste)

  • 1 minced garlic clove (optional)

Dice all vegetables and mix together in a medium to large bowl.  Add garlic if desired and salt to taste. Then, Eleya says, wait for people to start knocking down your door. “Enjoy much deliciousness and all the friends you make because you make super good food,” Eleya said. “My roommate and I are seriously becoming know by a ton of people for our guacamole.”

  • 1 piece of flat bread or tortilla wrap

  • 1 Tbs reduced fat peanut butter

  • 1 Tbs sugar-free jam

  • 2 strawberries, sliced

  • 1/4 banana, cut in half lengthwise

  • 2 Tbs low fat granola

Spread the peanut butter, then jam, over the tortilla. Place the fruit and granola in the center and roll like a burrito.

Tortilla Pizza: Contributed by Katie Schroeder

  • Tortillas

  • Pizza Sauce

  • Pepperoni, ham, sausage

  • Shredded cheese

Top the tortilla first with the sauce then put on cheese and desired toppings. Microwave until cheese has melted.

Mug Mac and Cheese

  • A large mug or bowl

  • ⅓ cup elbow macaroni

  • ¼ cup  water

  • ⅓  cup shredded cheese

  • Splash of milk

Combine macaroni and water and microwave for six minutes. Stir at four minutes and then at two minutes.  If necessary stir at one minute as well. Keep an eye on the macaroni. If it looks like all the water evaporates, add more water. After six minutes, leave any excess water and add the cheese and microwave for 45 seconds. When done microwaving this concoction, add a splash of milk.
