5 budget friendly weeknight dinners with just 5 ingredients

Monday

Stuffed-Mexican-Sweet-Potato

Let Mexican Monday be part of your weekly meal plan! You’ll love this Mexican Sweet Potato which is a variation on the traditional baked potato that will please the whole family.

Don’t worry about sticking exactly to the recipe, you can mix up the flavour combinations to suit your tastes and what you have in the fridge. If avocados are expensive at your local shops then replace with some diced tomato or add some extra beans or corn to the sweet potato stuffing.

Tuesday

Bacon, Spinach and Tomato Rissotto

Now hopefully you’ve already got the rice at home, which means you’ll only need to buy a handful of fresh ingredients to make this hearty Bacon Spinach and Tomato Risotto.

Using bacon is a great way to give meat-lovers the flavour they love, but you don’t need to use much to pack a punch (saving you money). Use any veggies you have on hand – mushrooms work well too.

Recipe available to members of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Wednesday

Thai-Chicken-Meatloaf

This Thai Chicken Meatloaf uses chicken mince, which you can often find on sale. And if you’ve got some coriander growing in a pot at home, you’ll save even more money on this hearty dinner.

We love making these little meatloaves in muffin trays so they cook quicker and we can keep portion sizes in check.

Thursday

Pork_Tangy_Coleslaw

With just a few basic ingredients, this healthy Pork with Tangy Coleslaw won’t break the bank. If you find some other meat on sale cheaper than the pork, you could use that too to save even more money.

Recipe available to members of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Friday

5-Ingredient-Soba-Noodles-with-Salmon-

These Soba Noodles with Salmon are perfect for a Friday night family meal. Salmon not in your budget? Use some marinated tofu instead and just chop into bite sized pieces, brown it in a pan and then add it to the noodles.
