I'm beaming!!!! Particularly when I find ways to help you save money.
Dried beans and lentils are very cheap. Canned and cooked beans
are more expensive but still much cheaper than meat.
Try canned borlotti beans, cannellini beans, red-kidney beans,
bean mix or chickpeas.
Lentils don't need soaking and are quicker to cook than beans so
save more gas or electricity.
