Budget cooking -Day 1

This recipe is so quick and easy, and seriously affordable, but packed with nutrients. It’s one of our family’s favorites.

Ingredients and cost

  1. Salmon 250 g, diced and skinned $7.50 includes tax
  2. Pre-diced spring onions ( $0.1) I grow my own, so ten cents saved!)
  3.  Slices of ginger, I do thin slices, then thin strips ($0.2)
  4. 1tbsp olive oil( $0.2)
  5. 1 tbsp soya sauce or teriyaki sauce, depends on what I have on hand ($0.2)
  6. Organic Tomatoes I get from local farmers market ($2.5)
  7. 4 eggs ($1.2)
  8. Rice 2 cups, I use pre-cooked ( leftover)($0.5)

Heat ( high) pan/ wok, add olive oil, add ginger and spring onions,
when oil starts to bubble. Add salmon, meanwhile I cut tomatoes into 4 pieces each, when the salmon starts to brown on one side, flip the cubes add tomatoes. When the salmon starts to brown add the rice. My rice is cold from the fridge, a little sticky, so I do need to break it down. Heat for 3 minutes or so, then add eggs, no need to beat before hand. Just stir evenly. Turn heat source off. Cover the pan/ wok for a minute, add soya sauce to taste, then serve.
