4 chillis
2 garlic cloves

4 shallots
1 red pepper
1 courgette
half a butternut squash cubed
tin of kidney beans
litre of veg stock
teaspoon of cinnamon
teaspoon of cumin
tablespoon of ground corainder
wilted spinach or frozen spinach balls.

I fried  4 chillis (i like it hot though),  2 garlic cloves,  ginger about an inch of it grated and  4 shallots and red pepper for about 5 mins then added a cubed courgette and half a butternut squash cubed (could use sweet potato), and a tin of drained kidney beans. Then a litre of veg stock. Then a heaped teaspoon of cinnamon (this really adds to the flavour) a heaped teaspoon of cumin and a tablespoon of ground coriander and let it cook for about 30 to 40 mins., then wilted some spinach leaves in, or can add a couple of frozen balls.

Author: Miki's Meals On A Budget

My name is Miki, and I live healthily on a budget, I am not a vegetarian but do have many meat free days, I have a lot of love for beans, pulses, lentils and veg, so you will see many meals posted based around these ingredients. I will also post meat and fish recipes. I spend no more than £30 per week for 2 full time adults, plus my 2 elderly inlaws evening meals (I do meals on wheels for them) and my granddaughter a couple of days a week...I love food especially savory food and curries, but I do have to watch my weight so many of my recipes will be low in fat, with the odd pie thrown in lol.
