The last five years haven’t been kind to the economy and we could all do with making a few savings here and there. But does being frugal on your food shop mean you have to miss out on tasty, local, seasonal produce? Certainly not, we say!
To get you started here is the first of two great Frugalfeeding recipes:
1. Gently fry your chillies, onions, peppers and garlic in oil for around 10 minutes. Set aside the water used to soak the chillies. Add the cumin and bay leaves and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
2. Pour in the chilli water you set aside, followed by the ale, chocolate, tomatoes, tomato purée and lentils.
3. Cook for 1 hour to thicken before adding the kidney beans, chickpeas and salt. Serve with rice or flatbread.
