So, I'm on a very tight budget and in dire need of some cheap recipes...main meals, and snacks. I find myself making the same recipes over and over again because I have so few I can afford. And snack wise I don't have much at all, I find myself just snacking on bread half the time...

So, what are your favourite budget foods?


Note: I'm in the UK so things can get expensive fruit/veg wise, things like peppers, avocado etc are out of my price range!

Frugal meal ideas thread

But in summary, bean & lentil soups are awesome and filling and are usually pretty cheap to make.

Edited to add: One cheap snack I like is to take some tinned (or cooked from dry) chickpeas, briefly sautee them in oil with a bit of cumin or curry powder, then roast them in the oven until they're slightly crunchy. Much more satisfying than just bread. :)

This is a good thread, but we have a few dealing with this same subject, so i'm going to close it and we can use the frugal meal ideas thread instead. feel free to ask your UK question in there, or if you want to start a UK specific thread in the UK forums that would be OK!
