One of my favorite cheap recipes to make is stir fry. A stir fry is so simple to make and most of them are completely healthy. I have recently discovered some great stir fry sauces that are relatively inexpensive and taste great. I try to buy the sauces when they are on sale so I always have a quick meal ready for those busy nights.
What You Need:
A tablespoon of olive oil
1 large bag of frozen stir fry vegetables
Extra firm tofu, beef, or chicken
Stir fry sauce
How to Make:
Heat olive oil in a skillet and add tofu/beef/chicken. Cook until heated through. Remove from pan and add vegetables and sauce. Cook until the vegetables are tender and then add the tofu/beef/chicken. Serve over rice.
There are some great dumplings out there as well and I like to serve those with this meal on occasion. However, the dumplings add to the price of meal as most brands are kind of expensive.
