Good recipes when cooking for one?

Question by collegejoey: Good recipes when cooking for one?
I’m a college student, and live by myself. I’m a good cook, but it’s just so hard to cook portions for one. I hate to waste food so I end up rarely cooking anything. I want to be healthy and eating out and fast food just isn’t the way to do it. So I want to start cooking for myself again. Does anyone know any recipes that are good for one person, doesn’t have to be too quick and easy. Thanks!

Question by KylieAnn: Are there any good, healthy recipes you can suggest?
I’m trying to eat healthier and shed these extra pounds I’ve gained in the last year before it turns into a big problem. I’m not extremely overweight, but I’m scared if I keep going this way, I will be. Any healthy, low calorie food ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Roasted Vegetable Dip Inspired by Ina Garten’s Roasted Eggplant Spread

1 medium eggplant, peeled and diced into 1-inch cubes
1 red pepper, diced into 1-inch cubes
1 yellow pepper, diced into 1-inch cubes
1 small onion, peeled and quartered
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. pepper
1-1/2 tsp. sea salt, such as Maldon Sea Salt, or kosher salt
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 clove garlic
1 Tbsp. natural peanut butter
2 tsp. sesame oil
1/4 cup chopped parsley
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Toss zucchini, eggplant, peppers and onion with olive oil, pepper and sea salt. Spread in an even layer on a baking sheet. Roast 45 minutes, turning halfway during cooking. Allow to cool 10 minutes.

Place vegetables and remaining ingredients in a food processor and pulse until dip is chunky. (If you prefer a smoother dip, pulse until it reaches your preferred consistency.) Serve with pita chips or homemade tortilla chips.
