Here in my house, I try to feed my family recipes that are generally healthy, yet don't cost a bunch of money to make. Being that I am the only female in a house of three men ages 15-47, making a recipe that will feed them and still have leftovers is awesome. I saw a recipe at MiserlyMoms.com for Sausage and Root Vegetables and I made something a little different that is still healthy and frugal. Best of all, it cooks all in one pot and comes to about $2.30 per serving.
One Pot Turkey Sausage and Potato Stew
1/2 Chopped Yellow Onion ($0.45)
1/2 Chopped Green Pepper ($0.60)
20 oz. (1 pkg) Shady Brook Farms Sweet Italian Sausage, cut into pieces ($4.29)
32 oz of Imagine Low Sodium Beef Flavored Cooking Stock ($3.99)
3 medium red potatoes (peeled and cut) ($1.29)
1 large sweet potato (peeled and cut) ($1.29)
14.5 oz can of Del Monte No Salt Petite Cut Tomatoes ($0.99)
15.5 oz can of Goya Great Northern Beans ($0.89)
Using about a tablespoon or two of your oil of choice (I used canola today, but you can also use olive oil), cool the onion and pepper for a minute or so and then add the turkey pieces. I cooked the turkey pieces until they were almost done and the added the stock, potatoes, tomatoes, and beans. I brought this all to a boil, turned it down to simmer , and let it cook until the potatoes were tender.
You can season this any way you want. I added some pepper, powdered garlic, and cumin to give it a little bite.
I would say that this easily would have 6 generous servings, being a meal that will make good leftovers. The cost of this comes to about $3.79 and can actually be paired down even more if you the store brand canned goods or beef stock. I tend to use Imagine because it's organic and MSG free.
Happy Frugal Eating!
