  1. Hi r/budgetfood. Been trying to challenge myself to make recipes that are both simple and budget friendly. As a rule, the dish needs to be 6 ingredients or less and cost under $6 excluding water, oil, and/or salt. So as my first attempt, I’m going with Lentils! I like them more than the tried and true beans and rice because dried lentils are similar in cost to dried beans, but don’t need to be soaked and cook in way less time; 45 – 60 mins for beans as opposed to 15 – 20 mins for lentils. Also made a video of the whole process.

    * ½ Onion ($0.35)
    * 3 Medium Carrots ($0.30)
    * 3 Celery Stalks ($0.25)
    * 3 Tbsp Oil ($0.12)
    * ¼ Cup Soy Sauce ($0.19)
    * 2 Cups Lentils ($0.77)
    * 4 Cups Water ($0.00)
    * 2 Tbsp Garlic Powder ($.0.29)
    * Salt to taste ($0.02)

    **Total Cost:** $2.28


    1. Dice the onions, carrots, and celery into even sized pieces
    2. Add the oil to a soup pot and add the diced onion, carrot, celery
    3. Turn the heat onto medium high and stir the vegetables to coat them in oil
    4. Let the vegetables cook and give them the occasional lazy stir until you see browning on the vegetables and bottom of the pot
    5. Add the soy sauce and scrape all the browned bits on the bottom of the pot
    6. Add in the lentils and stir to coat them in oil
    7. Add the water and bring to a gentle simmer, like a flat soda
    8. Add the garlic powder and mix it around
    9. Bring the water to a boil, then lower the heat to a gentle simmer and let it simmer for 10 mins
    10. Check the water level after those 10 mins and see if more is needed or not. If so, add a bit of water and continue to simmer for 5 – 10 mins
    11. After those additional 5 – 10 mins taste a few of the lentils to check for doneness, take a few samples to ensure they’re all cooked
    12. Once cooked, serve and enjoy!

    Let me know if you give this a shot and how it turns out. Also if there’s any other dishes you think would fit this 6 for $6 challenge, I would love to hear about those too!
