We will also be grabbing some frozen and refrigerated tortellini and gnocchi. Grab some jarred sauce, too. Other grains. Quinoa and brown rice are at the top of our list. Canned goods. You know this one already, right?

Read more about the canned goods we always have in the pantry here. Dry goods! So many lentils and so many split peas. A six-minute egg turns the simplest things like a piece of toast into a meal. Cheese, butter, yogurt. Carrots can last a really long time, too, if you peel them and pop them in water in the fridge.

Frozen veggies. Garlic and onions—and lots of them! Frugalwoods whips a gigantic batch up every Sunday and we enjoy it all week long. The recipe below is recorded as accurately as possible; apologies for any omissions—this is not from a recipe book and we are not recipe-writers.

The man sort of tinkers around in the kitchen and out pops a meal. In order to translate Mr. And so, without further frugal ado, I present you with the Frugalwoods lunch recipe.

Rinse that rice Let the rice drain completely and then add it to the sauce pan of water heating on the stove. Cover and keep a wary ear out—the moment it hits the boil, you need to turn it down.

Meanwhile, add a dollop of olive oil to a second large pot ours is approximately 8 quarts and put on medium high to warm the olive oil.

Note that this is a second pot—you now have two pots on the stove. Shallot chop Begin to break down the shallots.

I use 4 medium shallots. Cut them into a rough dice not a French dice. Add shallots to the pot with olive oil and stir to coat them. Begin to sauté. While the shallots sauté, prep your garlic cloves. We use 4 large garlic cloves or more. I do a rough mince of the garlic—again, not particularly French—just chopped up into tiny bits.

Add minced garlic to the shallots. Pro tip: store garlic and shallots at room temperature. Keeping them in the refrigerator will cause them to rot prematurely.

Right about now, your rice should be boiling—turn it on low and set a kitchen timer for 20 minutes after it has come to a boil. Stir shallots and garlic together. The shallots should begin to turn a slight golden color. While that cooks, prep 8 oz of baby portobello mushrooms.

I give them a quick wash off before beginning to dice. I slice them stem and all since the stems actually have great flavor.

Add salt to help them reduce down. Open and drain 3 You should now have approximately 15 minutes remaining on your 20 minute rice timer.

No need to stir the rice, just let it sit. FYI, this mixture is basically an umami bomb of awesomeness. Add those beans! Turn up the heat and stir those beans! Bring the mixture up to a simmer and keep it there until the rice timer is done. Stir occasionally.

Pro tip: I use this time to clean up the kitchen. Stir together. The finished product! FW portions out our lunches Servings: We then portion the rice-n-beans into our lunch-size glass tupperware for the week. This recipe typically yields 12 servings. This means that Mr.

Breakfast is different, I could eat the same breakfast every day but lunch? Same here! I personally would rather trim my budget somewhere else so I can eat with more variety. To each their own, though! I love making elaborate, delicious, expensive meals.

Having cheap and easy breakfasts and lunches leaves me plenty of room in the budget to eat extra yummy dinners. Even a much more expensive homemade lunch is sooo much better for the budget than purchasing lunch! It just involves so much thinking ahead! I like stuff like lunches and breakfasts to be on autopilot.

Leaves me more brainpower to think about dinner! Any time I need beans I put the dried beans in a dish of water that comes up 12 inches above the top of the beans and leave outovernight.

The next morning I drain the beans and rinse them a bit then pop them into a pan of water to simmer for about an hour. Use as you would normally. I batch-cook beans a pound or two at a time—three cans is very roughly equivalent to a pound of dried beans. I soak overnight, then put in the slow cooker all day with olive oil and some vegetable parts bits of celery and carrot ends and onion peel and whatnot.

I think they taste much better than canned beans and they can be slightly cheaper. I freeze them in quart bags in the cooking liquid so they stay soft and flavorful. I also batch-cook rice and freeze in quart bags which I wash and use several times.

Something about having rice and beans in the freezer makes me feel prosperous! Yes, I throw into slow cooker andsimmer all day, use what I want, freeze the rest. For mexican type recipes i. enchiladas, burritos, taco salad, I saute garlic, onions, olive oil first then dump into the crockpot with the beans along with a pinch of cumin and some cilantro some chili powder.

Also, being vegetarian, you can subsitute lentils and rice for taco filling or on taco salad so this might be an alternative to your beans and rice. wter to coer, cook like you would a pot of rice.

I find that chickpeas and pinto beans cook a ton faster than black beans maybe hours on high as opposed to If you freeze some black beans with cooking liquid you can use it later to make black bean soup its what we do now a days. Check out using a pressure pot to cook beans!

I use a pressure pot to batch cook beans and rice. I also cook veggies, apple sauce, and boil eggs with mine. I cook my own beans too black beans, white beans, chickpeas and then freeze them in 2-portion bags me and my husband only here 🙂.

I soak them over night and for the chickpeas I boil them in the same water, but for the beans I change the water 2 times 5 minutes after it begins boiling better taste..

And also: I DO NOT ADD SALT IN THE BEGINNING it takes longer to cook with salt , only in the last 5 minutes. I use dried beans which cook with a combo of 3 cups of water and 3 cups of chicken broth in my lovely crock pot while I sleep.

Cumin, oregano, salt, pepper, cayenne and curry. Basmati rice. Once in the bowl, I top it with a tbsp of hot salsa and dairy-free sour cream. Frugalwood are right, I can eat it every day and not get tired! Your version sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

The best purchase I ever made was my pressure cooker. Some people are scared of pressure cookers. The ones today have a multiple safety features. Beans go from dry to done in under 30 minutes. We make homemade hummus and chili and the taste of fresh beans is excellent!

The dried beans taste so much better. My hub is a vegetarian and we eat a lot of beans. I soak overnight, rinse and cook the next day. I portion them out into containers. My Dad grew up during the depression so I learned a lot of frugal meal.

I agree dried beans are so much better. I cook up a mess of them easily in the pressure cooker with quite a bit of water. Then once cool, I separate the broth from the beans and freeze them separately in ice cube trays.

Once frozen I store them in the freezer in freezer bags. Any time I need beans or broth for soup, I just reach in and grab what I need, In a recipe like this the beans frozen in the size of an ice cube u-thaw very quickly, like heating a can of cold beans, and they taste much better.

Dried beans taste so much better than canned. I soak my dried beans during the day and toss them into the crockpot right before I go to sleep. Then in the morning they are cooked. They cool off while I get ready for work. I portion them and freeze the plain ones.

I reserve some to make refried beans later that night. Like you, I batch cook. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I LOVE Korean food and gochujang, so this recipe sounds perfect! We eat so much of it, I bought a good rice cooker that gets used every day.

and pre-minced garlic the one thing I always allow myself to splurge on — I hate cutting up sticky garlic — eww! Thank you so much!!!

If I find an awesome tasty foodstuff I could totally eat it every day. I tried making soups but got pretty bored of that pretty quickly. I will have to try the rice and beans, I might have to swap around some ingredients as I cannot stand mushrooms.

Any ideas for other veg that might go with it the Frugalwoods? Will they have enough protein as substitutes to the mushroom do mushrooms even have much protein?!

Maybe I should just man up and force myself to like mushrooms. It worked with Tomatoes and Olives 🙂. I think you could probably sub in any other veggies that you like! The protein primarily comes from the beans, but more veggies is always good. Hope you enjoy it :!

I made it with the mushrooms in the end, it was lovely. Made it with a few extra veggies and some Thai Red Curry paste.

One dinner and 5 lunches for about £4… spot on! Find several meals you like that freeze well, make em and feeeze leftovers in portions to rotate and grab and go.

Most standard grocery stores will have a jar of chili paste or chili-garlic paste in the ethnic foods section. Even Sirracha would suffice. I just try and avoid the ones with added sugar. Green pepper, asparagus, broccoli, basically anything. So what are the ingredients in the chili paste you use?

Our local store carried only a Chili Paste from Thailand which includes, in addition to the chili, dried shrimp, fish sauce, Lemon, Tamarind and other stuff. We soak over night and boil for hr or 2 no biggie.

I make the whole pound in the slow cooker super easy, lazy way to do it then freeze them for future use. Ah, great! I was asking up-thread about batch cooking the dried beans. Will definitely have to give that a try! Thanks so much for sharing!

OK, so I think I already see a huge differece here. You guys consume WAAAY less calories. Do you bring anything else to eat on a work day? That equated to 4 servings for us, 5 if I really wanted to stretch it.

I even have to supplement that with more food at work fruit, labneh, nuts, or mini leftover. I am the queen of containers when I pack my lunch for work. So I eat 3 three times in a typical work day.

Then I get home from work and have another little snack to tide me over until 8pm dinner. FW usually brings some salad greens with her lunch.

Like Shannon above, this made 6 scant servings for DH and I, requiring accompanying salad and yogurt and such. But it was good. Love this. How did you know I was waiting for the cost per servings?

This is great. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing! Maroon to work prepared for lunch. But I will most definitely be giving this a chance. To add some variety, I could also see us mixing it up with different veggies and spices… Particularly Mexican spices of cumin, paprika, etc.

plus jalapeños. Bring on the rice and beans!! But this makes a good base. As the mom of a toddler, we do lots of peanut butter and jelly for lunch. The hubs will eat leftovers from what ever we had for dinner the night before.

Yet another recommendation for using dried beans. Much cheaper and fewer cans to deal with. Similar to Kristen, I make a huge batch in my pressure cooker love that thing and freeze 2 servings worth in individual Ziploc bags which I wash and reuse.

Question, what do you guys do about dinner? Save leftovers for another dinner? Probably not!! I have a saved craigslist search for a pressure cooker 🙂 Just waiting until some friendly Bostonian gets rid of theirs.

Dinners span the gamut depending on when I get home and how tired I am. At the minimum, a piece of salmon sauteed and put over greens with a homemade vinaigrette.

Or homemade hummus and cut up veggies. We have a pretty well stocked pantry so anything is possible. Though we usually stick to pescatarian during the week. Skip the pressure cooker and get a preassure canner you can use a pressure canner as aa pressure cooker but not the other way around.

You just add dry beans to a canning jar, add spices, fill with water and pressure can. This way you get the cost savings of dry beans, with the convenience of having canned beans on the shelf ready to go.

Try it. It will change your life 😉. I love me some good rice and beans. Yours looks really tasy though. I must have ageneral weakness. Tasted like a ketchup and onion hot dog without the hot dog. This is the moment we have all been waiting for!

Thank you so much. I guess I can stop reading your blog now. Just kidding! The main reason: They taste is significantly superior to canned beans.

The fact that they are cheaper is just an added bonus. So I promised her I would try it. Luckily for me, my mom has been a vegetarian her whole life and gave me one of her old pressure cookers. I would not recommend cooking beans any other way. They just do not seem to get as tender even after 8 hours in slow cooker vs.

The pressure cooker takes a while to get used to, but now I have become a converted home-cooked bean snob. I do not add salt, but sometimes add dried sea vegetable kelp, wakeme, dulse, etc. to add more minerals and flavor. The process takes a lot more planning beans need to be sorted, rinsed, and soaked the night before , time, and dishes, but the taste is totally worth it.

For any readers looking to use a pressure cooker, I would recommend a stainless steel not aluminum stove-top version if possible, and when picking the size, please remember that you should only fill the pot halfway for best cooking conditions a 6 qt pot can only be used for 3 qts of food for pressure cooking.

Also thank you for mentioning that you wash mushrooms and use the stems! My mom never really cooked with mushrooms so I never really learned how to use them, and I have been scared to wash them or to eat the stems for fear of ruining the mushrooms and my meal!

Now I know I can blame the darn French for all my mushroom fears! Seems like the way to go with beans! The french are responsible for so many wonderful things in the culinary arts, but also a couple of myths.

The mushroom washing among them! Raw, they are pretty woody. But I think they have the best flavor of the entire mushroom! Even better are the more gourmet varieties, like morels, chanterelles, Portobello or shitake.

But add some oil, garlic and heat… magic! It certainly works well for us. Leftovers are also well loved around here as lunch. Though we often will have leftovers as the next dinner 🙂. This has me curious about how much my lunch costs.

I have two recipes that I rotate. They yield meals depending on whether I cook a double batch or not. They are based dishes. Oh certainly! I have coworkers that buy soup for lunch from a place down the street.

Looks delicious! If you find a good recipe that you like please let us know! If you want to swap, my rice and beans is super easy and muy tasty!

Yum, that sounds delicious! Might have to try that! I love beans and, rice. My health suffers if I eat them on a consistent basis.

But, because I love them, I do push it to the limit. Black beans are my favorite and, I would much rather eat them than meat. Too, because of auto-immune disease I eat gluten-free.

This makes oats very pricey as they have to be labeled gluten-free in order to consume them. Full of warming dried spices paired with fresh minced ginger and garlic, this thick and rich chicken curry always hits the spot on cooler evenings.

Serve it with steamed basmati rice for a satisfying supper. Every family needs a go-to Mexican enchiladas dish , so we're nominating this one. You can make it with leftover pulled pork or use a pressure cooker or to cook inexpensive pork shoulder until tender.

Stuff the cooked pork into corn tortillas, then smother them in cheese, pour enchilada sauce over top, and bake until melty and bubbling. Cacio e pepe pasta may be the easiest pasta dish you ever make.

You need just 15 minutes and 3 ingredients, including a package of dried spaghetti, to whip up this elegant, unbelievably creamy, and cheesy weeknight pasta. Make sure you use Pecorino Romano cheese , which gives this popular Roman dish its signature taste.

Beef Stroganoff is a Russian recipe that originated in the s and has stood the test of time. Made with lean beef, sour cream , and common pantry staples, it is a cinch to assemble and cook in well under an hour, making it ideal for rushed weeknights. Ladle it over hot buttered noodles and serve with a side salad for a complete meal.

Here, it plays the starring role in a fiery, flavorful stew with thinly-sliced beef, cubed tofu, garlic, and gochujang. Serve it with lots of steamed white rice to tame its considerable heat. Feel great about what you are eating with this tasty Thai green coconut curry made with plant-powered ingredients.

The creamy coconut milk sauce is made entirely from scratch with chunky chickpeas and soft tofu working in tandem as the main proteins. It's may be entirely vegetarian, but it's every bit ultra-delicious and warming.

Plantain mofongo is thought to originate in Puerto Rico, but likely has its roots in African cuisine. It is a starchy, rib-sticking side dish of fried green plantains mashed together with garlic and crackling pork rinds or chicharrón.

Make it into a meal by stuffing it with meat, or plating it with a protein, such as steamed shrimp, poached chicken strips, or beans and rice. In Tswana, South Africa, deep-fried magwinya doughnuts or "fat cakes" are a nostalgic treat that evoke memories of the childhood kitchen.

Even if you are new to magwinya, these deeply-delicious doughnut balls are sure to put a smile on your face. Try them for breakfast with jam , or serve as a fun after-school treat for kids.

Pavlova , a fluffy, meringue-based confection named after the renowned ballerina Anna Pavlova, is one of New Zealand's national desserts. A crisp, baked meringue layer is filled with fresh fruit and whipped cream to create this show-stopping treat. It makes an excellent dessert for company, especially at summer buffets.

These veggie enchiladas feature a charred tomatillo salsa verde, Cotija cheese, and, yes, creamy pinto beans. That same filling would work well in burritos, too. If there happen to be leftovers, that meat and mozzarella and marinara make for a great sandwich the next day.

This soup packs in all the ingredients that would make your doctor happy—lentils, sweet potatoes, leafy greens—but the fiery Thai green curry paste keeps things interesting. This Haitian meal consists of sos pwa nwa, black bean sauce enriched with coconut milk, served alongside mayi moulen, a creamy cornmeal porridge flavored with garlic and herbs.

Great tip! So much of ethnic cooking is from scratch, too. Blessings, Nancy. So true! Many of the local restaurants in our area cook from scratch, which is what I look for. We tend toward eating at ethnic restaurants when we eat out as well. Given my dietary restrictions food sensitivies and GAPS diet and breastfeeding , it seems that ethnic places allow me something I can actually eat.

Indian food seems to be our favorite. I get concerned at some Asian places about MSG, soy, sugars, etc. It has always seemed to us that Indian restaurants were the least likely to use things like MSG and packaged foods.

I currently live near Washington, DC and love it because we have every kind of ethnic market available due to the diplomatic population. Within a five mile radius of my house, I have four Asian supermarkets alone. We also have the restaurants but I love cooking ethnic food so we do that, mostly.

That is so neat! Our Asian markets are fine for the most part…but I hear that there are way better ones on your side of the country. When my husband and I visited Hawaii long ago, we ate on the cheap, buying groceries and making our own meals. However, there was one little deli we stopped at again and again.

They made, for lack of a better description, barbequed chicken. They were from the Marshall Islands near Guam and through a translator, told me that it was a holiday food there, probably due to it using a lot of chicken meat.

Yum, yum, yum. We loooooove your red lentil soup recipe with the Indian spices. One of the only lentil recipes I enjoy! I have been known to make tamales from leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Quite tasty. Making healthy food at home is more beneficial rather than eating out.
