Budget Meals with Aldi: Mediterranean Stuffed Peppers

In January it's normal for many families to cut back shopping costs after the christmas period. I'm one of those people that like to set a budget per meal when I'm doing the foodshop and it really does help to save money. I have been asked to make a few meals with Aldi ingredients for under £5. My first budget meal is Mediterranean Stuffed Peppers.

These Mediterranean stuffed peppers are the ideal meal for vegetarians but can also be adapted for meat eaters too. I have gone for a more vegetarian option this time and you really can add a wide range of ingredients. 

- 1 pack of Mixed Peppers 89p
- 1 x 100g pack of World Foods Hot & Spicy Cous Cous 39p
- 1 x 100g pack of World Foods Roasted Veg Cous Cous 39p
- Feta Cheese 95p

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas mark 6.
Cut the peppers in half lengthways and remove seeds.
Chop the feta cheese into cubes.
Cook the two types of cous cous separately, as per pack instructions.
Divide the feta cheese equally between the cous cous.
Put the peppers on a baking tray, cover loosely with some tin foil and bake for 20 minutes.

Stuffed peppers are not only a real cheap dish but also pretty healthy aswell. In future i will probably add more ingredients  and even make some with chilli inside. These were really tasty, I'm a huge fan of cous cous. I will definitely be making these again. 

Do you have a favourite budget meal you like to make?

*Disclaimer: I was given Aldi vouchers in order to buy ingredients to prepare these meals. As always all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
