My husband will be deploying for a year and eating in hotel-ish accommodations for an unspecified amount of time (up to a year). He can't have a slow cooker or other electronic cook-top type appliances. He will likely have a small fridge and a microwave. He will eat at the galley for breakfast and lunch, but they don't serve dinner.

I wanted to do something nice for him and put together a binder with a bunch of recipes he can use for ideas or shopping lists so he can take care of himself and eat right even though he won't have much space, supplies, etc.

He will have access to a commissary and is considering getting a bike when he gets there.

SO, please if you would like to help me with this, post some of your best ideas for microwave cooking for one. He doesn't really dislike many foods. I'd love to hear what you guys have done when you were at similar accommodations or situations, and what you ate. I want this to be really comprehensive. I only have a few more weeks before he leaves.

Thanks everyone!

I can't think of any recipes might you might check out PETA's college cookbook, I think it's all microwave based. Good luck!

The Only Recipe Mars Ever Posts:

(I do it with boiled water from a kettle; but would work fine in a microwave)

1 pack ramen
Water
Handful Kale (or whatever greens can be purchased)
Curry Paste
Soy Sauce
Ginger and/or Lemon if avail.

Ta-da! Yummmy soup times.

This recent thread might be helpful. Many suggestions included a toaster, but I imagine there is some decent microwave recommendations:

I think vegan a go-go by Sarah Kramer would be a great reference cookbook for him to have. Its a super small, portable format and it definitely has microwave cooking recipes and pack-able food ideas.
