100g dried red lentils rinsed (20p) from 500g bag from asda £1
40g of cheddar cheese ( 25p ish) cheese from Aldi £1.99 350g
1 medium red onion (10p ) Bag from Aldi 7onions for 69p
1 desert spoon dried basil (6p) Aldi 55p pot
Serves 3 good portions ( or make double and save some for next day) 61p for this side dish, so 20p per portion is much cheaper than a pack of quorn sausages!
That is all. Put a pan of water to boil then add the lentils for 15 minutes, keep it bubbling. Chop your onion and fry it in some olive oil for a few minutes.
While these are cooking you can be grating your cheese. I like to use this amount of cheese as I like the flavour and I do not have a lot of fat in my diet due to my vegetarian meals so some of them may have a lot of cheese or the coconut milk but as I don't have any other animal fat there is not a problem for me or my son. I also don't drink milk I have Soya but I cannot get along with the dairy free cheese!
