As her culinary creations grew, so did Mimi’s success, where she now has over 270k followers on Instagram. That means that with every subscription, we are supporting people in poverty to get back on their own two feet. Commissioning editor Sam Crisp acquired world rights directly from the author, with a scheduled publication date of 8th June 2023. For me it’s a firm favourite for weekly meal prep, but if you’re willing to share, it’s a great low-stress dinner party meal.

We’ve rounded up a list of food blogs, chefs and resources helping people plan meals on a tight budget. I use frozen fish here as it’s cheaper than fresh fish and great to have in the freezer so that you can whip this up whenever you want. You can grab an individual serving whenever you fancy and after just a couple of weeks, you’ll have a variety of recipes to choose from. Rebecca was so organised creating a timeline for us to work on each element of the site together which minimised stress and made the design experience really enjoyable.These need to be from frontline professionals – such as your nearest Citizens Advice , health or social care workers, children’s centres, housing associations, advice charities, and mental health teams. Mimi Harrison is a recipe developer and the content creator behind the rapidly growing Beat the Budget platform. It’s in collaboration with charity End Child Food Poverty, and the team regularly share easy and cheap recipes to feed the whole family. There’s a No Power Meal Plan for anyone who has no access to any power to cook, heat water or refrigerate. Excitingly, on 8th June Mimi released our debut cookbook: ‘ Beat the Budget: Affordable Easy Recipes and Simple Meal Prep‘.

My ninja possible pan- I use it everyday at least twice, the size and shape means that it’s perfect for cooking 4-5 servings at a time (which we love). We were lucky enough to grab the chance in sitting down with Mimi and discuss all things surrounding how book and the inspirations behind it! I then decided it would be fun, and hopefully beneficial, to share my recipes for other students and people on a budget to try out. And that means turning on the hob, heating up the oven or even using the fridge can cost more than you want to spend. It’s proper frugal, old-fashioned cooking, but the blog is filled with important tips to help people who are struggling to afford food.It’s mildly spicy (you can turn up the heat if you want to), rich, buttery and so fresh at the same time. Mimi is a skilful recipe developer and content creator who is behind the popular platform, Beat the Budget. I love how it comes together in one pan and it’s really fresh whilst feeling hearty at the same time. You could also have a go at cooking the classic tomato pasta – the sauce takes just minutes to cook.

I felt like at the time, I could only find either cheap and unhealthy recipes or healthy and super expensive dishes, so I really wanted to start posting recipes that were balanced but also really affordable. I’m so grateful to have had the best team at Penguin Random House UK to create this book with - Sam Crisp, Demeter Scanlon, Alice King and the rest of the team at Ebury, thank you for making this the best experience! Motivated by her experience of reaching for cheap and unhealthy food while studying at University, Mimi created her blog and instagram platform to provide healthy and affordable alternatives that prove that delicious doesn't have to mean expensive. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free or have any other dietary requirement, I have organised the recipes in a way that will hopefully enable you to find the perfect recipes to tuck into.

With tips on Meal Prepping and how to make many recipes in your slow cooker or air fryer, this book has everything you need on a budget. From fish finger burritos to one-pot chicken and spicy tomato fish, she shares three recipes just in time for the summer holidays.
