Clean frugal & lush tagine!

Another thing is I'll try to part more recipes, and share pictures.

The other day I made a huge tagine, I always use the left over meet from a roast dinner. It was pulled pork this week.


Meat of choice

Can of chickpeas

Can of kidney beans

Baked beans if you like

Carton of passata

Onion finely chopped (I use frozen)

Garlic (again, lazy and frozen!)

Cumin, Garam masala and turmeric – teaspoon of each

Peppers & mushroom are optional

Coriander to garnish

Method –

Fry the onion and garlic in a huge pan until soft, and add your meat. Bung the other ingredients in and turn the heat down. Simmer for 20-30m. Taste and decide if it needs more spices. I like paprika too. I serve with basmati rice that I pop some turmeric in as it makes the rice yellow and the kids like it! Naan bread if you wish.

This meal is cheap, easy and freezes well.

Enjoy 🙂




I made some tomato soup as my favourite Heinz one is full of sugars. Gutted. Anyway mine wasn't so bad!

It was quick and easy to do

Carton of sainsburys basics chopped tomatoes

Splash of Worcester sauce

Onion diced

Garlic diced

Buillion stock – jugfull

Pinch of cayenne powder


Fry the onion and garlic and when its softened add your carton of tomatoes, and other ingredients. Simmer slowly. When it tastes ok blend it until smooth.

I add chillies to the top, it is lovely 🙂
