I’ve never eaten Parsnips before, and I’m sure this is not how you traditionally prepare them, but I like it. They are so cheap here you can almost not afford not to use them. I got a whole lb for only 0.30€.
Not really. As you have probably already guessed there is no actual pasta in here. But it looks a bit like that, doesn’t it? And it’s still a great, filling meal.
Quick and easy lunch or side dish. Tofu is always great because it is much cheaper than beef or pork
This is a classic, but it’s so good and cheap. Most of all it’s simple, every idiot can do this and it doesn’t take much time while still tasting somehow “classy”
Not really recipes, more ideas. I like to eat mashed potatoes, it’s quick, cheap and healthy, but it gets a bit boring sometimes so it’s nice to have several variations. Both variations are still cheap and healthy.
I just got back from volunteering in Africa with a lot of great recipes. This one is not very African though, I just made it because I was craving something healthy. Super cheap and super healthy dish
That’s how I like to do rosemary potatoes. Super simple to make and always turns out well. It’s not only very healthy but also rather cheap. With less than one 1 € , only a couple of cents for the dried rosemary and less than 1 € for the fresh one, it’s a great low-budget meal. Great Weight Watchers dish too, serve with vegetable and you’ll get a tasty low point, meal.
I’ve done this for a party and it was a great success. This recipe gives a huge portion though, so needless to say if you’re only cooking for a small group, make a smaller potion. It makes a very good party dish though because you don’t need to it serve hot, lukewarm or cold will also do, and you can store it in the fridge overnight.
I’m not quite sure of weight watchers policy with sweet potatoes, but apart from the potatoes, the dish barley contains any other points. Serve with vegetables of choice and maybe some meat or tofu and you get a great low points dinner
I used a traditional Risotto recipe (just with a bit less fat) for this one and added green peppers, tomatoes and thyme but you can really use whatever kind of vegetable and spice you like, just have fun with it
Originally this was intended to be a dessert, but as it is so filling, it may be better suited as a main dish. I ate some of it again for breakfast the next morning and that was great too.
Gosh, it was so hard to make a good picture of this. As you can see, I didn’t really succeed with that. But while it doesn’t look good this soup is delicious, simple to make filling, full of good proteins and extremely inexpensive. I paid 0,68€ for the lentils, 0,10€ for vegetable stock, roughly 0,80€ for potatoes and 0,80€ for carrots, so that’s a total of 2,38€ (3,04$, 1,97 £) for 6 – 7 servings of soup. Depending on how much vinegar and sugar you decide to add it may end up to be a bit more than that. But even if you decide to add a whole bottle of vinegar (roughly 1,19€) and 1 lb of sugar (roughly 0,89€) it’s still fairly inexpensive. Prices may vary from country to country though.
My grandma likes to add bacon and smoked pork chop to it, but I haven’t seen anyone do that in years and I prefer it without any meat, but if you like you can add some of that
Another great summer dish. Inexpensive and easy to prepare. I categorized it as dinner but it works great as lunch too. You can easily store it overnight and add to your lunchbox the next morning. It’s extremely low on weight watchers points too, with only 2 points for the potatoes itself and none for the marinade.
