Never mind essays and exams - one of the biggest challenges you'll face at university is fending for yourself in the kitchen, especially if you're vegetarian. The Hungry Student Vegetarian Cookbook will take you from freshers' week to graduation, all on a seriously tight budget. You'll never have to resort to a can of baked beans again! Whether you want a simple dinner, a quick lunch between lectures, exam fuel or a slap-up meal to impress your housemates, these easy-to-follow recipes are designed specially for students and include all your favourites. Enjoy veggie lasagne, bolognese, fajitas and chilli, as well as ideas for soups, casseroles, pasta bakes, jacket potatoes and homemade dips. Plus morning-after breakfasts and simple but knockout desserts and sweet treats, such as chocolate fudge brownies, sticky toffee pudding and lemon cheesecake. With photographs to show what you're aiming at, advice on equipment and stocking your cupboard (even in a tiny shared kitchen!), and essential hints and tips - including how not to poison your friends - you won't want to leave home without The Hungry Student Vegetarian Cookbook.
As a student, Charlotte Pike spent four years learning to survive on a meagre GBP10 a week and still eat seriously well. The skills she picked up in her university kitchen led her to train as a qualified cook and set up her own company called GoFreeFoods for people with food intolerances. Charlotte blogs on student cookery for the Guardian, writes a regular food blog for Hello! magazine and gives frequent cooking demos at food fairs around the UK.
