Hi, I'm looking for inspiration. Need to cut our food budget. Currently spend about £60 per week feeding 1 adults and a toddler-who eats more than me!! Looking for some dinner inspiration- we always have meat, think this needs to stop. Like curry, chilli bolognaise. Hate eggs and mushrooms. Like lentils and chickpeas. What do people cook that is cheap but feels like a treat?

Chilli but substitute tinned green lentils for the beef.

Aubergine and pea curry, Meera Sodha, delicious.
