How to Cook Without a Kitchen ~ A Simple Steamer Lunch!

My university room is my bedroom, study, library, yoga studio, and kitchen. With no oven or stove, I am ever so grateful for my electric steamer.

It’s surprisingly easy to make an entire meal out of steam (and raw vegetables). My fellow foodie friend Emma and I share a weekly veg box from OxCo-op which is ethical, delicious, and an easy option for food shopping.

A typical meal:

With good quality vegetables, this meal doesn’t seem plain at all! Especially in a Hello Kitty bowl.

What are your tips for student cooking? I’m always looking for suggestions!
