Bulk ingredients make nice dishes

At the moment I’m cutting down on as many costs as possible but also wanting to eat generally healthy at the same time. I’ve came across many receipes that are cheap to make, and quite tasty.

I often buy bulk amounts of ingredients and then cook up several things and make single portions so I can make them faster from the freezer. Microwave meals with what I know has been put in them.

For the past month or so, my freezer has been empty except for a bag of prawns, and ice cubes. Tonight, it is quite full again – with lots of meals cooked up.

I’ve been using all fresh ingredients, getting veg from the local farms with whatever is in season and chicken from places like Makro – they had an offer for about £10 for 2.5KG of chicken breasts… so been making up things today.

Some of my menu for the following few weeks:

  • Mango Chicken
  • Chicken Jalfrezi
  • Chicken Curry
  • Piri Piri Chicken
  • Spicy Chicken

From what I’ve tasted today, its going to be a good set of meals.
