Easy to make, wild garlic pesto is pungent, delicious and made from wild garlic foraged from the woods, or Allium triquetrum which is what I have growing in my garden.
Had some broccoli to use up today, so decided to make some Broccoli and Lentil soup for lunch and a 4p Cheapy Bread Roll with it
Here’s how I made 4 meals for 2 from 1 x 200g pack of smoked mackerel fillets
A mixed vegetable quiche using everyday veggies with lots of possible variations
A shredded Brussel sprout salad, with sliced carrot, dried cranberries, walnuts and a cranberry dressing. Light and delicious
Chicken and sun dried tomato sandwich paste made with leftover roast chicken, or cooked especially. Simple, versatile and delicious.
Packing school lunches or adult packed lunches is bad enough. If you’re also trying to minimise the cost the whole thing becomes a massive pain
This spicy carrot and lentil soup uses chicken stock made when processing a roast chicken carcass. The stock brings a great deal of flavour to the soup.
A versatile couscous salad that can use up all kinds of bits and pieces – add some more protein too if you like
Salty olives, creamy cheese and crunchy cucumber encased in granary bread – scrumptious!
Wanted to try a couscous salad that I have been doing for a while and see if I could get it sub 50p. Well, it worked out at 71p for the dish in the picture, and there is plenty there for two, so 35p each, billy bargain 🙂
There is a lovely smoky hum from the paprika and a gorgeous texture from the lentils and vegetables, it’s utterly divine.
