The best part about this recipe (aside from the cheese) is that you can essentially just use up any vegetables you have lying around in the fridge. Recipe here.

No, eggs aren't just for breakfast. Cooked with potatoes, this flavourful one-pot dish is not only easy to make, it's easy to wash up too. If it's too exxy, leave out the cheese. Recipe here.

8. Chicken Noodle Soup

This recipe calls for a lot of basic ingredients you'll already have in the pantry. It makes six to eight servings too, so you can enjoy leftovers for lunch all week. Recipe here.

14. Supermarket Roast Chicken Hoisin Noodles

Who said instant noodles had to be unhealthy? Add pre-cooked chicken (you could even use leftovers) and veg for a cheap and delicious meal. Recipe here.

16. Spring Frittata

It might look fancy, but this vegetable frittata is surprisingly basic. If asparagus is out of season, skip the expensive imported stuff and sub it out for broccoli or spinach. Recipe here.

Budget isn't always boring. Just like uni doesn't have to be stiff. For flexible online study, enrol with OUA today.
