Melissa's budget-friendly dinners
These smart suppers are a far cry from the bargain bin. With Melissa d'Arabian's innovative ideas for economical shopping and cooking on your side, satisfying dishes featuring fish, steak and more are within reach. To break out of the meat-heavy dinner routine and save some dough, Melissa suggests cooking one bean-focused dinner per week. Use canned chickpeas to make crispy, golden falafel seasoned with herbs and aromatic spices, served on a simple salad with a drizzle of creamy white bean-and-yogurt sauce.
