What are some of the cheapest foods you can think of?
These are the foods I buy in bulk because of their long shelf life and they’re just great wholesome staples to many plant based dishes that I eat. I threw together an effortless stew yesterday and I’ve had it twice already, its too yummy not to share. The chickpeas and black beans that I used we’re already cooked and in the fridge, but you could use a can of each instead.
Here’s the recipe to my delicious, comforting, filling, oil free, plant based meal.
4 cloves garlic
1 green bell pepper
2 C cooked chickpeas
1 C cooked black beans
1/2 C dry lentils
3 small potatoes or 2 large potatoes
28 oz can of vine ripe tomatoes
Added spices: cumin, paprika, black pepper
Lots of salt to taste
It’s as simple as chop it up and throw it into the Crock-Pot, cover with filtered water and push start. I cooked it on high for 6 hours and it was perfect. We had it over some Jasmine brown rice topped with lots of avocado. It’s a hearty meal, perfect for dinner or can be taken as lunch.
