I don't do many posts about what we eat as I always forget but on this occasion the camera was in the kitchen so I thought I would take a few pictures.
I've had an open pack of Quinoa in the cupboard for a while and as I had half a bag of Kale left in the fridge I thought I'd do a stirfry. I used a third of a bag so 70p ish. I cooked it as I do my rice by adding water and bunging it in the microwave.
Diced onion and a drizzle of olive oil .... onions were allotment grown and the oil a couple of pence.
Some left over mushrooms, these were 20p yellow sticker mushrooms .........10p as half a tub was used.
Kale was a yellow sticker bargain at 10p.......5p for the half a bag
When the onions were half cooked I chucked in the kale and mushrooms.
When the Kale and mushrooms were cooked I chucked in some frozen peas and sweetcorn.....guestimate of 10p worth.
Ta dahhh, yes I know I'm using the football bowl again as all the other bowls I have are black and make everything look dark in the pictures.
A meal for three for under around a pound. Bargain.
This was a cheap, tasty and extremely healthy meal which took minutes to cook and great for using any kinds of leftovers. I'm trying to use Quinoa in more recipes so please let me know what you use it for.
