How cheap can you make a big pan of soup? My dinner tonight, and lunch tomorrow, and lunch the day after. Three portions of home made soup for 15p. Take one bag of Chinese Stir Fry reduced from £1.50 to 15p.
Boil up in a large pan for ten minutes. Chuck in a shake of garlic granules, some spicy sauce mix from a packet, a splodge of tomato puree, stock cube, and two spoons of yogurt. You can use any spices you have.
Smash it to bits with a blender, and bingo, spicy soup. Very nice with a slice of bread dunked in it.
