Recipes: Trailer Park Vegans

Money's been a little tighter than usual lately now that our housemate has moved out and we are footing the enter rent bill... Small adjustments were in order, so we stocked up on sale food items at Big Lots. Spinach Rice, Rice-a-Roni is vegan, and can be "jazzed" up with fresh sauteed garlic, jalapenos, onions and spices (nutritional yeast, parsley, basil, fresh ground pepper etc...).We also like it because it calls for a can of diced tomatoes to throw in, so we're getting more veggie flavor/chunks of tomato in it.

Here's our first Trailer Park Vegan dinner, the whole meal cost us no more than $6 to make (and served a LOT of food, my husband can eat a lot!). Whenever we make "cheap" "junk" food, we always eat it with a healthy portion of salad to be sure we're getting more nutrition out of our meal.
