It's just another year in college, except I'm paleo this time around!!
Last year, I was living in Scotland and totally NOT paleo, but had a full kitchen in my dorm flat (and yet, somehow still seemed to survive of toast). This time around I'm back in the US of A, but stuck in a dorm with no kitchen. I do have access to a refrigerator, a microwave, and a plug.
Hello Crockpot-- Help a girl out with some awesomely tasty crockpot recipes and/ or any little tricks you have with using a crockpot as your main source of heat.
Like how to boil eggs in a crockpot- haven't figured that one out.
Crock pots are awesome! I have a full kitchen and I still use mine as much as possible.
It takes a couple hours for water to boil in a crock pot, so I imagine you could put a 1/2 dozen eggs in there, cover them with a good amount of water, and turn the crock pot on before class, assuming you'll be coming back home in a hour or so.
Otherwise, there's broths/stocks/soups...
And other slow-roasted meats...
Crock pot, steamer and an induction burner are all usefull in your situation.
Crock pot for stews and broths
Steamer for vegetables, steamed egg spoups and sweet potatoes
The induction burner for cooking anything else
Recepies for your crock pot:
Google says put eggs in crock pot, cover with an inch of water, turn on low, and cook for 3.5 hours.
A yummy variation on this would be to cook them along with a broth or soup (Adds flavor to the eggs, and presumably calcium to the soup).
I kind of wonder if bringing the liquid to a simmer before adding the eggs, and then cooking a shorter time, would be safer, since crock pots take a while to get up to temperature. But 3.5 hours on low seems to be a time-tested way to do it.
