Cheap, vegetarian and BLW friendly recipes needed!(7 Posts)
I’m pretty broke for the month so desperately need healthy food for DD (7 months) me and DH.
Any suggestions? DD has food at her childminders on a Wednesday, Thursday & Friday so the food doesn’t necessarily need to be healthy those days just cheap and vegetarian!
(I should add that DD isn’t a vegetarian- just I am)
Root veg stew
Homemade bean burgers
Baked sweet potato with bean chilli
Lentil loaf (served with mash and veggie gravy for you and Dh) www.greatbritishchefs.com/recipes/red-lentil-loaf-recipe
Savoury cheese pudding and veg www.deliciousmagazine.co.uk/recipes/savoury-cheese-pudding/
Cheese and tomato bread and butter pudding www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/313608/cherry-tomato-and-ham-bread-and-butter-bake Either omit the ham for your section of it, or omit it entirely.
Being a vegetarian doesn't have to complicate things, pasta with pesto/sauce, veg on the side or mixed through - peas/broccoli/sweetcorn/carrots... Baked potato with cheese/beans/salad.. quiche, fajitas(veg/Quorn), soup, couscous/veg/beans/lentils...
