Back to basics!
Want to know how to make light & fluffy scrambled eggs, smooth gravies, thick spaghetti sauces, or other basic recipe dish?
Low Cost Healthy Meals has your cooking basics covered!
This is our collection of simple recipes and recipes that didn't fit neatly into another category. Most of these recipes act as a base for other recipes or are plain enough to allow for additions.
The benefits of knowing how to make your own basic dishes and ingredients for other recipes are not only cost savings, availability, and preserving food, it's also knowing exactly what is going into your food.
For example: You go to make a chicken stew and need to add gravy. You make your own gravy so you have it on hand, don't have to run to the store, and know what's going into your final meal. Good deal!
Fresh ingredients may almost always be swapped out for powdered, frozen, dehydrated, or canned. Use what you have on hand or can readily get. The ultimate goal is to stay within your food budget while producing low cost healthy meals that satisfy.
Have fun experimenting and playing with your food!
