10 Things: 10 meals under $10


Today’s 10 Things list was put together by Rachel Rappaport of the food blog Coconut & Lime. I asked Rachel to come up with a list of 1o Meals under $10.  If you have any ideas for future lists or want to put one together yourself, send me an email.

My favorite 10 Meals Under $10 – Rachel Rappaport of Coconut & Lime.

A great way to make a meal under budget is to aim for as few side dishes as possible. Put your money in the main dish!

Spicy Peanut Noodles are customizable to each person’s taste.


Golden Acorn Squash Chili is both easy to make (it slow cooks all day) and makes the most of seasonal produce.


Chicken-Spinach Meatball Pasta Bake-There are vegetables in the meatballs and the sauce! Serves up to 6 people.


Thai Noodle Salad with Turkey and Shrimp is a great way to use up some leftovers (free food!) in a new way.


Butternut Squash and Swiss Chard Lasagna is an elegant and affordable way to feed roughly 10 people for under $10.


Perfect for summer, all Chilled Borscht needs is some crusty bread to make it a complete meal.


Heirloom Tomato Spaghetti Strata is easy to make but special enough to serve at a special brunch.


Stuffed Cabbage-a complete meal in itself, you can serve 6-8 people easily for under $10.


Thai Tofu on Lemongrass Skewers is perfect for the grill and only needs some rice on the side to make it a complete meal.


Eggplant Rollatini with Rapini is a thrifty choice that makes enough for 2 large meals for under $10 total.
