Had a naan bread pizza yet?

In terms of food, university days are a bit of a low point in life: tinned chilli con carne, endless mugs of watery Cuppa soup, and Crunchy Nut cornflakes for dinner. Ring any bells?

 

It doesn't have to be so sad, though.

 

In an attempt to rescue every student from another depressing dinner, we’ve put together a list of recipes to suit the smallest of budgets. And you don't have to be a MasterChef contestant either. Share these with the students in your life and let us know how you get on:
