Here’s another cheap and easy recipe that’ll fill your tummy good on a cool winter’s night. My dad showed me how to make a good, hearty and tasty soup using just a few basic ingredients.
1 16 oz. package navy beans $1.39
1 onion chopped fine 20 cents (free if you use garden veggies)
3 large carrots, chopped fine 60 cents (free if you use garden veggies)
2 large celery stalks, chopped fine 40 cents
salt as desired
1 t pepper 16 cents
Total cost $2.75
Prepare beans as directed by soaking and then cooking as directed. About halfway through the cooking process, add your veggies and spices and cook for another hour or hour and a half. Add water as necessary for desired consistency and to increase amount of soup.
