Embracing rising food costs, rise of the omnivorous .

I know for many that the rising cost of food is causing serious problems & we certainly have noticed the rise in cost of many of the staples but it's had a positive effect on our diet diversity.
We're now starting to look at cooking a lot more Asian type foods as a way to cut our food bills & with a local P*k foods store close by it makes it a lot more accessible , If you don't like spice it's easy to modify recipes to suit your taste whether it be Indian /Chinese or something in between or even a twist on an English dish.
Lots of countries around the world base their diets on the most basic & cheapest of foods to great effect & something i'll be looking more into. It also helps that the recipes can often be adapted to cater for what can be found cheap or reduced
Right i'm off to eat dinner of homegrown salad , cooked but served cold ( homegrown )French beans  & (homegrown French bean & courgette)  pakora, this is becoming a favourite  & very cheap cold lunch.

    I make a lot of rice based dishes like risotto, rice with chorizo and chicken.  Also quite a lot of vegetarian curries served with rice.  All these are fairly cheap to make.

    If I can get hold of cheap diced beef or lamb then it's likely to be turned into a stew or curry.
