Cheap Eats #5

It’s been a bit quiet on the Cheap Eats front – mostly because we’ve been eating out of the freezer (that Thai beef curry is lovely with some tomatoes chucked in) or I’ve been repeating meals (fish, chips and mushy peas has become a real favourite!). I also ate out a fair bit over the food festival and last weekend so there have been fewer meals to prepare.

So, I don’t have much in the way of excitement to share with you at the moment, as the most exciting (and new) thing that I cooked over the last fortnight was this vegetable and lentil stew (which we have been eating as a soup). It was easy peasy as it was cooked in the slow cooker and it produced around nine decent servings which went into the freezer for lunches at work.

And how was it? Well, it was ok. It’s a wholesome and good winter soup, but it’s nothing exciting. If you’re gonna make it, make sure you add a few chillies, and some spices. Maybe cumin and coriander seeds. Apologies for the lack of photo, but I’m having it for lunch tomorrow so maybe I’ll rectify the situation then!

I promise that I’ll be a bit more exciting this week as I have cauliflower risotto and a sweet potato and egg curry on the cards.
