Frugal Food

Soups are so cheap to make, ideal when you are trying to make your money go further. Just a few simple ingredients can be transformed into a delicious frugal meal.

Today for tea I made cream of broccoli soup.


2 Medium Potatoes - peeled and finely chopped
1 Large Onion - peeled and finely chopped
1 head of Broccoli
25g Butter
1 litre Vegetable stock (hot)
175 ml Double cream

Melt the butter in a medium to large saucepan, and the potatoes and onion and a little salt and pepper. Sweat gently for 10 minutes.

Add the hot vegetable stock followed by the broccoli cut into florets, you can even use the stalk if you wish. Boil gently for 5-10 minutes until soft, remove from the heat and stir in the cream.

Liquidise and season to taste.

Served with some garlic bread sprinkled with parmesan.

Cheap easy and very tasty.
