It’s long been argued that cooking healthy and fresh dishes works out more expensive than opting for convenience meals.
However, one rising Instagram star is on a mission to prove that you can cook a substantial meal from scratch for less than €1 per person.
Chef Miguel Barclay runs the hugely popular One Pound Meals channel, which has racked up over 70 thousand followers since it was launched.
The account consists of recipes and videos of healthy meals that can be cooked at low cost, ranging from Chicken Katsu Curry to Quiche Lorraine.
Barclay told The Daily Mail that his desire to simplify his cooking resulted in the idea for the channel and he has been blown away with the response.
“I have always had a passion for food and like to over-experiment with my dishes. My mind is always searching for the core flavours that create a particular dish, and when I started to strip away the layers, slowly my dishes were getting simpler and as a by-product, much cheaper,” he explained.
“I posted them on Instagram and quickly they started to become popular. After only a few months I had tens of thousands of followers and was having fun experimenting with my own dishes too.”
