Recently, I wrote an Advice piece for Coeliacs on a budget and so as a follow up I decided to put together some cheap recipes. This is a compilation of previous recipes – I’m very busy with university work at the moment but I promise that you will have a brand new recipe next week.

The pricing on this recipe does not include dried herbs or salt and pepper as the amount works out as a fraction of a penny each time.

All prices are accurate as of July 2017. I’ve used ASDA to make the prices simply because that is where we shop, but try looking at Aldi or Lidl for lower prices if you need to shave even more off of the price!
