Feb 1: Sushi lunch; Quinoa Chowder

Lunch

Today was again supermarket sushi: $12.78 for the two choices, or $6.39 per serve.

Dinner

Tonights Quinoa Chowder with Spinach, Feta, and Scallions recipe comes courtesy of Chowhound. We dropped the cilantro – yep, we’re in the group that doesn’t like it. We used leek instead of the scallions, and soft poached eggs nstead of the hard boiled eggs Chowhound want to use.

Chowhound say 2-4 serves, and it turns out four seems to be right.

The soft poached egg melts into the soup in a way that hard boiled eggs would not.

  • Quinoa – $3.49 for the packet, but we’re only using about 1/4 or 22c a serve
  • Olive oil about 15c
  • Garlic clove – 5c a serve
  • Chipotle pepper substituting for the jalapeño – 10c a serve
  • Yukon Gold potatoes (about 1 large potato) – $1.56 of which this recipe uses 1/4 – 10c a serve
  • Seasonings -15c a serve
  • Leek (in place of the scallions) – 35 a serve
  • Spinach leaves from the balcony garden – 0c a serve.
  • We used the whole 8oz of Feta cheese in the $5 pack – $1.25 a serve

Tonight’s soup cost us $2.72 a serve plus 20c for a slice of toast to dip in the egg yolk.
