Review

“[A] beautiful book full of recipes that fit a food stamp budget.”
—@michaelpollan

“This cookbook isn’t just full of delicious recipes; it will bring good, cheap meals to those who need them  the most.”
Food and Wine

“Could change the way you shop, cook, and eat [by] busting up the myth that eating healthfully entails spending a ton of money.”
—Time.com

“Unfussy recipes [that] go way beyond predictable.”
—Oprah.com

“…we’re loving Leanne Brown’s cookbook Good and Cheap. Her easy meal ideas fit a food-stamp budget (about $4 a day per person) but spare nothing in flavor.”
—Dr. Oz Magazine

“Squad goals: Have everyone over for dinner and enjoy an insanely impressive meal together without spending a lot of time or money. We hit up Leanne Brown’s Good and Cheap: Eat Wellon $4 a Day for a make-ahead, fun party feast that will blow them—but not your budget—away.”

I loved the concept of this cookbook and although it is not a vegetarian cookbook (and I AM a vegetarian) I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did.

Author Leanne Brown has created a collection of simple but for the most part, healthy dinners, snacks, breakfasts...with the goal of being able to eat for $4. a day. Although I think that is a bit optimistic, based on prices for groceries in many places, including here in BC Canada, the reality of being able to stick to a much lower food budget IS possible with these recipes.

A good variety of recipes including: Potato Leek Pizza, Vegetable Quiche Hold the Crust, Vegetable Jambalaya, Corn Soup, Sweet and Savory Pineapple Salad and many more. And yes, there were a number of vegetarian options included too, I appreciated that.

Recipes include not only a list of ingredients but also approximate (based on the author's findings) price per serving, small photos of finished dishes, servings per recipe and easy to follow instructions.

An excellent recipe collection for anyone on a budget, just starting out with their cooking ventures and/or those looking for cheap but good ways to stretch a food budget further (and aren't we all, these days!) ;-)

Geraldine Helen Hartman author of the Groovy Green Kitchen series.

I love this cookbook. Lots of cheap, practical recipes and some great advice for how to stock a kitchen on a budget. Leanne writes clearly, and I like the friendly, informal tone overally. Not to mention the beautiful pictures!

Not only can you cook great meals on a budget, but it's a great cookbook for those who are new to the kitchen. The recipes are simply written and easy to follow and there are no exotic ingredients that can sometimes make cooking intimidating. Recommended to all!
