$5 Dinner Cabbage Soup

When you are on a budget, a delicious dinner for $5, really hits the spot. We tried this recipe for the first time over the summer when the boys were visiting grandparents. Now we crave it all the time. We just told our picky eater that the cabbage was lettuce.

Cabbage Soup

1 lb ground beef  $2.50
1 Cabbage, chopped  $0.69
2 cans diced tomatoes with basil and oregano $0.69 each
1 tsp Beef bouillon $3.69 for 38 servings equals $0.10 per tsp
6 cups of water
salt and pepper to taste
any other veggies laying around

Total cost $4.67

optional ingredients
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped

Brown ground beef and onions. Drain meat. Return meat to pot and add other ingredients. Leave on medium heat for 45 minutes. Serves a family of four with left overs.
