Dec 7: Tomato & Mayo; Cauliflower Curry & Cheddar; Bacon and Black Bean Chili


We decided the tomato mayo toasted sandwich was worth repeating (and we still had half a tomato to use) but we mixed it up by toasting a cauliflower curry pickle with cheese.

  • Two slices of bread are 32c per serve
  • The organic tomato was 74c and we shared half, or 19c per serve
  • 12 slices of yoghurt cheese are $4.79 and we shared one or 20c per serve
  • Add 33c for Wildbrine Madras Curry and Cauliflower Sauerkraut salad
  • Add 30c for mayo and butter.

Lunch today was an enjoyable combination of warm sandwiches, which was perfect on a relatively cold, windy day, for $1.34 per serve.


A return to a favorite:bacon and black bean chili with all the “fixin’s”: crème fraîche, cheddar and avocado. The recipe makes six serves.

  • The ground beef was $8.95 or $1.49 per serve
  • The beans are $1.00 per can and we used two, or 33c per serve
  • Canned tomatoes were $1.29 or 22c per serve
  • Tomato paste was 79c or 13c per serve
  • Bacon is $6.99 for the pack and we used half, or 39c per serve
  • Add 30c per serve for seasoning
  • The avocado was $1.25 (it was big) or 63c per serve
  • Instead of crème fraîche and cheddar we used labné, a yoghurt cheese that adds about 25c per serve.

This is a great recipe and we always enjoy it. The chili is $2.86 per serve and the toppings add 88c for a total of $3.74 per serve.
