One way to save money on your grocery bill is to cut the amount of meat you consume. “Vegan on the Cheap,” written by Robin Robertson, will help you do just that with tasty meatless recipes. For a chance to win this book, see below.
Robertson said she wrote “Vegan on the Cheap” to help individuals save money and time. She writes:
These days, most of us are on an ever-tightening budget. With skyrocketing food prices, even buying the basics has our grocery bills reaching new highs. A steady stream of newspaper and magazine articles and other media reports suggest many ways to save money on food, and interestingly, “eating more vegetarian meals” is one of the primary suggestions.
In her 258-page cookbook, Robertson shares 150 mouth-watering recipes that cost less than $2 per serving. There are chapters on soups and stews, slow-cooker recipes, skillet recipes, desserts and much more. Each recipe includes a cost comparison chart. A 16-ounce jar of salsa costs $2.89 to buy but if you make it, you can save $1.42.
The tabbouleh-stuffed peppers recipe was to die for and it only cost me $2 per serving to make. The cheapamole was also delicious and it cost $0.55 per serving. The secret to making the guacamole inexpensive — peas!
