It’s January 8th, have you broken your resolutions yet?
One of the most popular New Year’s Resolution is eating healthy, followed by saving money. Veggie Potstickers will help you accomplish both, a meatless fare that will still fill you up. Easy too, using store bought wonton wrappers. This recipe makes what seems to be a lot, but in my family we are always fighting for the last one.
Well, slowly fighting as we attempt to maneuver food into our mouths using chopsticks. We use them on a fairly regular basis, and I think we are not half bad at it. Using chopsticks definitely slows down the eating process, which is not a terrible thing. It’s also pretty good for a laugh.
We are searching for frugal meals to save dough. We are saving for a very special reason; our son is waiting for us in China and we’ll be heading there soon to bring him home.
Even if you don’t have a special reason, veggie potstickers will stop the man in your life from complaining about meatless Monday. And if not? Well they make good appetizers.
(Or you can add a bit of meat in the filling. A little will stretch a long way, so it will still be frugal.)
I always serve it up with some brown rice mixed with peas. One day I will give it a try with homemade gyoza wrappers and pretty pleats to be a bit more authentic.
For approximately $7, I fed my family of 5 dinner and lunch the following day.
What’s your favorite frugal meal?
