We took some simple vegetarian ingredients and turned them into a lovely starter or, in larger portions, our dal soup makes a great cheap and cheerful family dinner. And remember that because they are small, split in half and skinned, red lentils are the quickest cooking of all pulses. However, they tend to disintegrate – this makes them great for dals and soups, less so for salads or sides.
Looking for a healthy, satisfying snack? Look no further than our pea and millet balls served with a tahini dip. We especially love them because millet is a good-for-you budget-friendly replacement for quinoa.
If you are having guests over and want to cook them a starter that will take you no longer than 20 minutes, we guarantee that they will go wild for this spinach, cream cheese and bacon flatbread. Because cheese and bacon!

Putting together a meal in the last days of the month needn’t be a dreary affair, with a few pantry staples and these quick-as-a-flash home-made sauces, dinner will be just as tasty as when the kitchen was still fully stocked after pay-day.
