Healthy Meals Under $5? - Page 2

Mmm that Barley and Wild Rice Soup sounds amazing!

I make a similar pasta fagioli with tomato sauce, beans (kidney, red, pink, or garbonzo all work great) and several big handfuls of spinach. So good and my carnivore husband loves the beans instead of meat :) I've also done it by adding chili seasoning instead of Italian for a sort-of chili-mac. So tasty and easy!

Vegetable stew:

 

Ingredients:

- one onion (15 cents?)

- bag of frozen vegetables ($3)

- 2 tbs tomato paste, 1 tbs flour, 2 tbs oil, salt and pepper ($1 or so)

- chopped parsley - optional
 

Cook chopped onion and parsley in oil; add 3 cups of water. When the water starts simmering, add vegetables. Cook vegetables thoroughly. In a separate bowl mix 1 cup of cold water, tomato paste and flour; add to the pot. Let it simmer for another 5 min. Season to taste.

 

If you have 2 more dollars, you can buy hotdogs, cut them in pieces and add to the pot.

 

For $3, you can add a chicken breast cut in cubes.
