The Thrifty Veggie

Harness every season’s flavours with recipes combining fresh produce with lasting staples – clever and delectable vegetarian recipes that can make a real difference to your household budget.


The Thrifty Veggie by award-winning cookery writer Nicola Graimes is an inventive, savvy cookbook that will help you cut the cost of your weekly food shop and make simple, delicious, meat-free meals using everyday storecupboard ingredients!

With chapters arranged by cupboard essentials – pasta, rice, noodles, eggs, nuts, beans and grains – each recipe combines trusty staples with in-season fresh produce to create modern, global and truly mouthwatering dishes. Try making the most of seasonal veg with Winter Root, Cheddar & Cider Pie or Pea, Mint and Feta Crostini, buying in bulk for the Chipotle Cakes with Chilli & Lime Yogurt or Lentil, Preserved Lemon and Date Tagine, or reviving leftovers with Last-of-the-Beans Risotto or Arancini Eggs.

The Thrifty Veggie is packed with Nicola’s best-value vegetarian and vegan meals, as well as useful tips for thrifty shopping, freezing and cooking.

This is the new and updated edition of Veggienomics.
