In lidl at the moment, aubergines are 39p each for decent size ones.
My market is doing 4 for a pound.
Aubergine parmigiana a lovely veggie dish.

2 tins of chopped tomatoes 50p
1 onion 10p
3 garlic cloves 10p
1 large aubergine 39p
Mozzarella ball sliced thin 47p
2 bay leaves
sweetener or sugar.. teaspoon.
So around £1.60 to make this dish to serve 4, 40p per portion.

In a pan add 2 tins of chopped toms, chopped onion and 3 garlic cloves crushed, 2 bay leaves and sweetener, heat thru…
slice 1 large or 2 small aubergines length ways, and cover in salt and leave to draw moisture out, rinse salt off and pat dry,
fry aubergines in batches in hot pan till blackened, then layer oven dish with aubergines and tomato mixture, finish with slices of mozzarella, and bake in oven till crispy on top about 30 mins…
Parmesan is traditionally added to this recipe, I didn’t this time, you can also add breadcrumbs.

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.
