I was living in a tiny dorm room and on my own for the first time, so cooking, let alone taking care of myself, was A LOT for me. Quick and easy meals were what I gravitated towards, but it was sometimes hard to wrap my head around. I usually ate the same things over and over again, which were plain ol’ steamed veggies, oatmeal and canned foods because they were the easiest thing for me to make. I was definitely bored with my food, but I was also lost as to how I could spice things up. Cooking for myself was daunting and I thought that it was going to take too much of my time, but in reality that was not the case at all! I wish I had a book like this back then, I would have been eating like a queen! Haha but really, I couldn’t believe how easy and simple some of the recipes in this book were, given that they are so jam-packed with flavor and beautiful because we eat with our eyes first, right?). I highly recommend this book to people who are in a similar situation and find themselves in need of new ideas. Jackie has got your back!Her goal was to make the recipes in this as painless as possible and 95% of the ingredients used in this book are accessible and usually quite easy-to-find. She helps give you ideas for recipes that oyu can make in advance, take with you, or prepare quickly and easily once you get home.

  • No-Bake Apricot Almond Bars
  • Beastly Cauliflower Breakfast Burrito
  • Acorn Squash Chips
  • Bagel Hummus Veggie Sandwich
  • Whole Wheat Empanadas

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) sunflower oil
  • 1 cup (140 g) diced onion
  • 2 cups (280 g) chopped zucchini
  • 4 ounces (120 g) green beans
  • 2 large carrots, sliced into rounds*
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups (500 g) chopped tomatoes
  • 1½ cups (315 g) cooked corn kernels
  • 2 cans (30 ounces, or 850 g) white beans, plus liquid
  • 1 cup (235 ml) low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil, or more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley, or more to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, or more to taste
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Instructions

  1. Warm the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions, zucchini, and green beans to the pot, sautéing for 5 minutes or until the onions are mostly translucent. Next, stir the garlic, tomatoes, and corn into the vegetables, sautéing for 3 more minutes.

Notes

  • Tip: At certain grocery stores you can buy grilled corn in the freezer section. I love thawing this out and using it in recipes like this one to add even more flavor.
  • Carrots weren’t in the original recipe but I had some so I threw them in!

  1. What a lovely stew! I can imagine this recipe tasting wonderful when chilled as well. It’s incredibly hot in Los Angeles here, so I might need to do that!
