Genuinely Good Student Recipes
I’ve been at university now for over two weeks, and I must admit that I haven’t cooked a single thing since being here. I think the most challenging dish I’ve made has been mixing a tin of sardines with tomato ketchup and spreading it on slightly toasted bread, and that’s from someone who has their own cookery website!
The trouble is that every time I read in The Telegraph or The Guardian a ‘brilliant student recipe’, I’m left bamboozled by it. Have these people ever been students? Have they any idea how much food costs when you don’t have an income? And more to the point, have they ever tried cooking in a student kitchen where it takes you 20 mins to find a grater because someone’s ‘accidentally’ put it in their cupboard? And cooking for one is always a challenge.
Cooking as a student isn’t easy, but luckily MAZWO is here with some fail-safe, cheap, easy and quick recipes that don’t involve going to the shops and buying 5 different spices that you’ll only use once.

Sardine Pasta (75p per serving)
Sounds gross, tastes great.
You will Need:
- 1 Tin of Sardines in Olive Oil (40p)
- 1/2 Lemon, juiced (15p)
- 1 mug of Pasta (20p)
Begin by filling the kettle and boiling it. To save time, place about an inch of water in a sauce pan and place over the hob. When you add your boiling water from the kettle, it won’t take as long to re-boil.
Once the pan of water is boiling, add your pasta and boil for around 9 mins until soft.
Drain and return the pasta to the pan.
Open the sardines and add to the pasta, including the oil and add the lemon juice.
Mix well and serve with black pepper.
