Did you get a copy of last weekend’s Observer Food Monthly? It was all about how to eat well for less. I had gone off the magazine a little bit in recent months, but last weekend’s was back on form. There were so many great recipes, and the best part about it was that they were all very low cost, with many costing under £5 for 4 people, and the blogger from North South Food giving a week’s work of (delicious sounding) recipes for £20 each for 2 people.
It got me thinking – what are your go-to low-cost recipes? I’m a big fan of the roast chicken. On Sunday, Peter cooked a chicken for Hannah and I, then we had pasta with mushrooms and chicken, then risotto with speck and chicken, and tonight we’re having chicken dumplings. You get so much value from one bird, as the ‘leftover’ meals tend to use up bits and bobs that we already have in the cupboard or veg drawer.
What is your favourite recipe? I’m always looking for new inspiration, so please share recipes or links in the comments!
