If you want some further inspiration on eating well on a budget, you can get plenty of recipes and tips at www.cookingonabootstrap.com
Once you’ve got a few recipes you are confident with, if you’ve got a big enough pan and a freezer, try batch cooking. This can save you time and money. Curries, chillis, bolognaise and soups all lend themselves well to batch cooking, freezing and defrosting in re-cooking in portions.
You can also download an app for Android or iPhone called “Supercook” (or visit www.supercook.com ). You can then just tell it what you have in your fridge and cupboard and it will give you recipes with those ingredients.
