Today is National Vegetarian Week and  being a pescetarian I eat mainly vegetarian meals but also eat fish. So this week I shall go all out veggie and have no fish this week. I am doing this by myself as I know the rest of the family will not be that bothered for having vegetarian meals all week. So tonight I shall be having the same as the rest of the family but mine will be made with vegetarian sausages. The recipe is on the link on Mondays menu. I'll post each might with what I end up eating.

Today I made a big pot of vegetarian chilli using Tescos own brand vegetarian mince and value kidney beans. I added 3 tins of Aldi tomatoes in the end because I thought it was a bit dry.

This has been cooking all day in the slow cooker and will be portioned up when cool for future meals. I costed the whole dish  and it worked out at £3.01 for a huge amount of chilli.

Tesco veg mince £1.50
3 x tins Aldi tomatoes  93p
1 x tin kidney beans  21p
big squirt tomato puree  5p
2 onions  20p
chillies 12p
Reckon I should get 5-6 portions of chilli so it's a nice cheap meal with some Tesco value rice (40p a kilo bag)

  1. I never think of making something like chilli in the slow cooker, I'm really not using it to it's full potential. My family would turn their noses up if I offered them a meal without meat, fussy so and so's that they are.
