Cheap, quick and tasty

Dear Elizabeth

In the next couple of weeks, thousands of teenagers across the UK will head off to university. They’ll be living, budgeting and cooking with no help from mum and dad.

It got the Friends of the Earth office thinking about our own student days, and the first meals we learnt to cook that were actually worth eating.
Find out about Fran's first student meal
I had three criteria for my first culinary experiments – I had to be able afford the ingredients. It needed to be possible to get my grub from pan to plate before Neighbours started. And I wanted to be able to eat – and maybe even enjoy – my creation...

Over the years, I’ve added new recipes to my repertoire, but I’ve never forgotten those first kitchen forays. It’s still just as important to me that my food is cheap, quick and tasty.

For every student memory of spatula-melting or adding mouldy tofu to my pan (seriously horrible), I can remember a bit of kitchen genius that has stayed with me. Like how to save pounds by opting for a veg-heavy diet, or how to make my meat go further (really, really small bits). I'm especially fond of the recipes that kept me going in my student days, which still find a place in my heart (and on my hob) today.

I’d love to hear about your first cooking triumphs – or catastrophes – and get your tips for cheap and easy meals that have stood the test of time. I’ll share some of the best on Facebook to inspire students across the land.

A free copy of Pulse, the amazing and sustainable cookbook from Jenny Chandler, is up for grabs for the best recipe submitted in the comments on Fran's blog or in reply to this email.

Yours thriftily,
Kierra and the food team
