15 Quick and Easy Recipe Ideas for Your Hostel Stay
If you’re traveling around a hot country, you might think soup is a bad idea. But remember you can always have gazpacho, which is served cold and comes from southern Spain. At the end of the day, to cook a soup, all you need is a blender.
But even if your hostel doesn’t have one, you can mash vegetables using a sieve, provided they’re super soft. As soups are easily digested, they tend to be nutritious and fill you up quickly. It’s another easy choice to feed a big group.
5. Baked potatoes
Baked potatoes are the perfect option for the lazy cook, you just stab them a few times, add a bit of oil and put them in the oven for 90 minutes (or microwave them in just 5 minutes!). Bake them until they’re golden and crispy outside, and soft and fluffy inside.
The choice of toppings is pretty much endless. You can use the classic tuna mayo, or baked beans with cheese, or you can follow your heart and have eggs and bacon, roasted vegetables, or even smoked salmon with cream cheese.
6. Wraps, tacos, and burritos
When you don’t know exactly how to eat your food, it’s comforting to remember you can always wrap it up! Jokes aside, wraps are also practical, as you can take your meal with you to eat later in the day.
For tacos and burritos, you just need some peppers, avocados for the guacamole, some salsa and sour cream, beans (you can find them in cans), and your choice of meat. The concept is simple and you can change the recipe to suit your tastes.
