  • Best cheap vegetables?

    Poor student, do you have any insights into what combination of veg would have the best nutrition? All are under 3/kg (like $2.25/lb). All vegetables I will cook.

    Onion
    Broccoli
    Carrot
    Red and green cabbage
    Leek
    Celeriac
    Frozen vegetable mix

    Add a really big eggplant and cheap bell peppers to that list.

    Roast the eggplant and puree it - that dip lasts a looong time.

    Bell peppers are cheap (at least, where I live) and if you don't like them raw, roast them up too, peel them, eat them with eggs or mashed.

      I would suggest canned tomatoes, and second eggplants and squashes. I dunno how the prices are in UK, but here fresh produce on 50% off sale is by far cheaper than frozen anything. Also, if you have an Asian market, that is often a source of pretty cheap veggies, bock choy, daikon, cauliflour....

        In the winter cabbage in all forms and winter carrots. Seasonal vegetables are often the cheapest.

            Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

              Cabbage is awesome and cheap.

              Thru winter I eat a lot of cabbage, onions, carrots and frozen veg (about $1 per bag.)

                  You should also look into frozen spinach. It's a whole lot cheaper per pound than fresh ones, at least where I live.
