Jul 24: Supermarket Sushi; Rissoles with Edamame, Quinoa and Feta Salad


A lazy Sunday so we opted for sushi from a nearby Whole Foods.

Lunch today cost $11.69 per serve.


An Australian classic, rissoles are like individually fried, tiny meatloaves! Lots of that loverly outer crust gets formed!

Served with a salad from cooked edamame, quinoa that was cooked earlier in the day, and – of course – more of that Valbreso feta! The recipe makes four serves and is based on a lunch salad we used to buy at Sprouts.

The ground beef came direct from the farm in our Prather Ranch meat delivery.

  • Dry aged 85/15 ground beef $8.57 or $4.29 per serve
  • 8 oz Panko breadcrumbs are $2.99 and we used half, or 75c per serve
  • A pastured egg is 50c or 25c per serve
  • The onion is 6c per serve
  • We purchased about half a pound of quinoa for $3.01 but used only 1/4 of that, or 19c per serve
  • The Valbreso feta is $9.99 for a 600g tin, of which we used 1/6, or 42c per serve
  • The cooked edamame came from Trader Joe’s and was $2.49, or 63c per serve
  • We added some picked fire roasted red bell pepper that are $5.99 a jar and we used a quarter, or 38c per serve
  • A pack of fire roasted corn kernels is $2.49 but we used about 1/4 of the pack, or 16c per serve.

The salad was really good and we served the rissoles with a little of my brother’s home-made tomato relish, another Australian classic. Dinner tonight cost $7.13 per serve.
