Most college kids live in kitchen-less dorms, relying on fast food and cafeterias for their meals.  However, most college kids also own a microwave, and little do they know it can do more than reheating pizza. The microwave recipes I share on my website are easy to make for college students, and these recipes will allow the student in your life to spend more time hitting the books and thinking then worrying less about the next meal. While at some universities, students go crazy for the practically gourmet food in their dining halls, at other schools you'll find yourself eating microwave meals that you can make in your dorm room. Dining hall hacks can only get you so far before you start stocking up on dorm-friendly food.

Just because you live in a small dorm room or have minimal cooking skills doesn't mean you have to limit yourself to ordering takeout when the dining hall doesn't do the trick. You don't have to keep, nor do you have to use all of your points when making bulk purchases on amount of snacks from vending machines. It's easy enough to make a meal using just a microwave and the right ingredients, no frozen dinners. This device is not just for reheating. Whether you're looking for a quick breakfast that isn't a granola bar or a bowl of cereal, or you're trying to whip yourself up a DIY dinner, your microwave is a huge source of untapped potential.

You can make an easy chow mein dish in the microwave. This is the perfect college student microwave recipe for dinner or lunch. This dorm friendly vegetable chow mein is a very nutritious recipe that can be easily cooked and tastes great. This is a perfect college dorm room meal idea and I hope you will give it a try.



  1. Take a wide microwave safe bowl (about 1200 ml bowl will work perfectly) and add water in it.

  2. Put the bowl in microwave and heat the water for about 7 minutes on high power. (I used 900 watts microwave for this recipe).

  3. After the time take the bowl out and add salt in it.

  4. Break the pasta/noodles from the center so that it may easily fit in bowl.

  5. Add the noodles in bowl in a way that they are well dipped in water. Put the bowl back in microwave and cook noodles over medium heat (over 540 watts) for 6 minutes. 

  6. After the time take the noodles out, strain the water and rinse the noodles with chilled or tap water to stop the cooking process. 

  7. Sprinkle cooking oil over the noodles so they may not stick and keep aside. (You may put these in the refrigerator for 15 minutes as well for a nice texture in chow mein).

I experienced that cooking doesn't need to be threatening. I didn't figure out how to cook as a child. No treats or cakes with Grandma. Never helping mother cook meals. I needed to learn as a grown-up, due to legitimate need. I needed to figure out how to cook. So I just began cooking. It was unpleasant from the outset. I attempted to sear garlic, and everything turned green. It was one Pinterest fall flat after the other until I at least began to get its hang. For some time, I; despised cooking feared it with each fiber of my being. And one day; I, began anticipating it. I would be at my work area and begin pondering what I could make for supper. I began to get amped up for evaluating new plans, concocting something all alone, or utilizing new fixings. It got fun. Also, that is something I need to impart to you. Cooking is fun and energizing, and regardless of whether you think you will suck at it, recall, even I can cook.
