God is Good! Our non-profit organization, Cook and Play, fed 25 people at our local homeless shelter for women and children for $3.18 this month. We collected fresh vegetables from three different local gardens and made a meal full of protein, healthy carbohydrates with vitamins and minerals. If you’re looking for a frugal meal during the summer months, this is it…
- 1 large eggplant
- 2 cups baby carrots, sliced on a diagonal
- 2 large onions, cut
- 1 extra large zucchini (you know the kind you might throw away because it got enormous in the garden)
- 3-4 small squash
- 2 peppers, sliced
- 1 bunch green onions
We served these vegetables stir-fried on a bed of brown fried rice. Just in case you’re wondering, brown fried rice is freezer-friendly. Click here for the recipe.
