As a follow up to the groceries thread, just a few recipes for inexpensive meals
Turkey & Curry Stew
This is made with curry powder so not a true curry but more of a chili. You can use turkey or whatever mince is cheapest (turkey is probably the healthiest).
1/g kg ground turkey
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can chick peas
1 large onion, diced
Saute onions in oil, then add turkey and brown. Add curry powder and pepper and simmer for 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and chick peas and simmer for 15 minutes. Mix in yogurt and simmer (do not allow to boil) for 5 minutes. Serve alone or over rice.
Homemade Taco Seasoning
I abhor the Old El Paso type stuff in packets, but this turned out really lovely. Just enough seasoning, without being overpowering. Mix to taste.
Brown your meat in oil, then add in seasoning and simmer for 10-15 minutes. This is healthy as well - not as much salt as regular taco seasoning
Broccoli & Mushrooms with Oyster Sauce
1 small bunch of broccoli, cut up
150 grams (1/3 pound) white button mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
about 1/4 to 1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
Heat your wok or pan over high heat, and add the oil. When hot, add the broccoli and mushrooms and stir well. Add a splash of water, and continue stirring and tossing the broccoli, adding more water as it evaporates.
When the broccoli is about half cooked, add the garlic. When the broccoli is mainly cooked, add the oyster sauce and toss well. Cover and cook for a minute or two more.
