May 10: Chipotle, Bacon & Black Bean Soup; Mediterranean Pollock with Roasted Tomatoes and Black Rice


For lunch we finished the Chipotle, Bacon and Black Bean Soup from two nights ago.

Without the avocado it was $1.68 per serve, including sour cream.


Keeping to the “Fishy Friday” theme, tonight we explored a Mediterranean Cod with Roasted Tomatoes recipe, although we substituted pollack instead of cod. (Spoiler alert: bad mistake.)

  • The pollock was $1.49 or 75c per serve
  • Green olives were $4.29 and we used about half, or $1.08
  • Grape tomatoes cost $2.49 or $1.25 per serve
  • Add 30c for seasoning.

The tomatoes and olives were both the most expensive part of the meal, and the best. The pollock was very unimpressive with little to no flavor and a rather terrible texture, so I guess we get what we pay for. We will do this again with cod as the recipe says. Not a total waste for $3.38 per serve.
