Feb 22: Avocado & Smoked Tuna; Eggplant Satay with Carrot and Sprout Salad


As we’re having vegetarian tonight, we went “fishy” at lunch with canned smoked tuna.

  • The smoked trout is $3.49 per can or $1.75 per serve
  • Sprouted Rye bread is 32c per serve
  • Two avocados were $1.98 but we shared one, or 50c per serve
  • Add 30c for butter.

A good sandwich for $2.87 per serve.


We over-catered with the grilled eggplant, so we had leftover. Add some more peanut satay sauce and a very inauthentic Vietnamese inspired salad.

  • Eggplant was $6.78 or 97c per serve
  • The peanut butter was $1.99 and we used about 1/2,  or 25c a serve
  • Other seasonings in the satay sauce add 35c per serve
  • Add 50c for marinade ingredients
  • Carrot adds 10c per serve
  • The bean sprouts were $1.49 and we used half, or 38c per serve.

It was worth braving the cold weather to grill outdoors because this is a great meal for $2.55 per serve, although we have learnt that reheating slightly enhances the texture, so perhaps next time we’ll grill in the day when it’s warmer and reheat for the meal.
