All recipes welcome

Just got a comment from someone saying she thought her recipes might not be ‘frugal enough’ to add to Friday’s carnival. If that thought is holding you back from sharing your ideas, PLEASE participate anyway!!!! You don’t have to be a die-hard tightwad for your ideas to be helpful to someone else. It may be that someone’s ‘medium-frugal’ recipes might be much more doable for a person who hasn’t done much thinking about frugal cooking before. So please join in the fun. You can even just sharing ONE recipe with the costs instead of doing a whole three days’ worth.

  1. I think I have mine together but this is really tricky for a family who is together constantly but seldom sits down to eat together–we prefer to get together for conversation and fun instead of food. 🙂 I think I figured out how to manage though.:)

  2. I have a recipe for fried bolony sandwiches from my college days, but it may be a little toooo frugal. 🙂

    I have a recipe to share if anyone needs one. I’m not going to do a costing on it but it’s lovely.
    Fry a finely chopped onion in plenty of olive oil until caramelised (about 20 mins) add a large pinch of salt, and stir through a washed tin of lentils and a generous serving of brown rice.
    YUM-o! This is my favourite winter lunch.

  4. Here’s a frugal and easy one that I just ‘created’ on a whim recently:

    Saute some onions and garlic and add some chopped up chicken (fresh or leftovers – optional) and a tablespoon or so of cumin. Sprinkle some flour on top and stir for a minute or so.

    Now comes the easy part….add a can of chicken broth, a can of diced tomatoes and a can of black beans (drained). Simmer until warmed through or a little bit longer to let the tomatoes break down and you have a great hearty soup! (add salt and pepper to taste)

    I added a bit of chopped fresh cilantro at the end and served it with tortilla chips and even sprinkled the broken ones on top as croutons!

  5. Not to mention someone’s recipe they may not consider frugal could help someone use an item up in their pantry that they haven’t figured out how to get rid of! 🙂
