Cheap recipes

    Recommended Posts

    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

    curry powder

    ground pepper

    olive oil

    yogurt

     

    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.

     

    chili powder

    paprika

    cayenne pepper

    cumin

    oregano

    garlic powder

    onion powder

    salt

    pepper

     

    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.
