Here’s today’s budget busting lunch:
Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F
Take one seeded ciabatta (£1 for a pack of 4 in Tesco)
Mix a little olive oil with 1 clove of crushed garlic. Cut the ciabatta in half and brush with the oil.
Finely chop a mix of veggies (I use red pepper, yellow pepper, red onion, courgette (zucchini), mushrooms). Tip the vegetables into a roasting pan. Add a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of olive oil. Mix to coat the veggies in the oil.
After the veggies have been in the oven for 10 minutes, add the ciabatta (cut side up). Cook on for a further 5 minutes then remove from the oven and assemble.
Voila! A super quick, cheap, delicious lunch 🙂
This ciabatta could easily be elevated to ‘dinner’ status by adding a little pesto, and a nice salad side dish or bowl of crispy kale 🙂

My favourite budget-busting meal has got to be dhal and chapatis. It’s so cheap to make and so tasty! It’s one of the family’s all-time favourite meals. What’s your favourite budget busting meal?
