A lovely cheap dish here, inspired by a huge butternut squash I found in Lidl that was too big for the cupboard. Honestly, it was almost obscene! Anyway you’ll just need a squash, an onion, red lentils, canned tomatoes, frozen spinach and some beans (optional). Most of which you’ll probably have in your cupboard/freezer anyway. Oh and spices to get the curry taste but if you make curry regularly you’ll probably have those too. I had a proper dilly dally about whether to put coconut milk in this as the texture had gone quite creamy with the lentils anyway. In the end I went for without, but I think if you wanted to make it a bit more rich it would be a good addition.
We are trying to save up a bit in February so expect to see a fair few more budget-friendly posts. We don’t spend that much on food generally but it always helps to save where you can! Lentils are a great option for this because they’re super cheap, super filling and SUPER good for you. Low fat, high protein and they take on any flavour you give them. If you don’t already love lentils, nows the time to start!
