Hot Mamas Kitchen: Her Campus Edition Week 3

Hello Her Campus Readers! This week for Hot Mamas Kitchen: Her Campus Edition I am going to share some easy/healthy/quick meals and snacks that you can make in your dorm. Score.

Zucchini Noodles

So…. on to other pressing matters. Zucchini noodles. This is possibly the easiest dinner known to man, that also is super healthy.

First off, you are going to need a veggie spiralizer. You can get these very cheap on Amazon.

Ingredients:

1 zucchini

½ tsp. olive oil

Baby bella mushrooms

Cherry tomatoes

Ground pepper, garlic, and red pepper for taste

Instructions:

  1. Put the zucchini through spiralizer until you have your desired amount of noodles.
  2. Sautee your zucchini the vegetables of your choice for about 2 minutes in olive oil. I personally, enjoy baby bella mushrooms and cherry tomatoes.
  3. Add your zucchini noodles to the pan for another minute or so.
  4. Season with any spices such as pepper, red pepper flakes, and garlic.
  5. ENJOY!

Roasted Chickpeas

  2. Blot chickpeas with a paper towel, removing any excess water.
  3. Toss chickpeas in a bowl with olive oil & sea salt.
  4. Spread chickpeas onto a baking pan for 30-40 min.
  5. Take out of oven, seasons with spices of your choice (in this case, pepper, garlic, and  red pepper flakes.)

Yogurt Bark

Looking to get your sweet fix, but trying to stay healthy? This yogurt bark is easy, healthy, and delicious! Top with whatever toppings you want, this is just an example.

Serves: Around 8

Ingredients:

Aluminum foil or parchment paper

2 cups of plain Greek yogurt

Strawberries

Granola

Crushed Almonds

Chocolate Chips

Instructions:

  1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil/parchment paper (you are going to want to make sure your baking sheet fits in a freezer.)
  2. Pour the yogurt onto the baking sheet (you can use a spatula to make sure it’s an even layer) making each layer approx. ½ in thick. If it doesn’t cover the entire baking pan, that’s totally fine!
  3. Top with whatever toppings. Scatter as much or a little, using however many toppings you want. In the photo above, the bark was topped with strawberries, granola, crushed almonds, and chocolate chips.
  4. Freeze uncovered for about 4 hours.
  5. Remove from paper, and lift out of baking sheet by grabbing the corners of the foil/paper.
  6. Place onto cutting board, cut, serve, ENJOY!
