    Best cheap vegetables?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    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.

    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.
