A lot would depend how happy you are with him/ her being around a hot stove or oven.

Very easy:
- Rice Crispie treats
- Salads
- Minute cake in the microwave
- Grilled cheese sandwhich with other things added
- scrambled egg in microwave
- jacket potato in the microwave

Little more care needed:
- Pasta with various sauces
- Bread
- stir-fry
- eggs sunny side up
- fried bread

My daughter is 10 and she helps make meatloaf, prepare veggies and salads, baked chicken.

My son is 13 and cooks a lot, including grilling.

French toast, pancakes, eggs, baked chicken are all popular dishes our kids like to prepare and cook.

It is going to depend more on her experience than her age. If she has no experience with a chef knife, you don't take that out out of the gate. My kids loved making
- bread
- cookies
- omelets

She's 9 so i'm not sure i trust her with a knife just yet, but bread sound doable.

That is why I say experience is more important than age. My 8yo is FAR better with a chef knife than I am.

English muffin pizza; boxed mac n cheese; ditto scrambled eggs (except I'd think by 9 they'd be ok using the stovetop); bisquik pancakes. Honestly, if you're supervising as you indicated in your OP, I'd think most any simple recipe would be acceptable. In my experience 9 yr old girls LOVE to make cookies.

My daughter has kids cookbooks that have easy to follow recipes. One of her favorites is macaroni and cheese and meatloaf. You could probably go to your local library and pick some kids cookbooks up. Also another fun thing to do are sugar cookies.
