We're pleased to share a special set of videos designed to help with affordable dinner ideas.
Staff at Oasis Academy Lord’s Hill in Southampton have created five short, easy to follow videos on how to make five meals, for four people – each using ingredients costing just £3!
“We know that this year has been tough in so many ways – not least on people’s bank balance,” explains Lewis Collins, Teacher of Food Technology at Oasis Academy Lord’s Hill.
“We wanted to create something to help families make their money go further when doing the weekly shop, which is how we came up with 5,4,3 Meals. These meals are easy to follow, taste great and are enough to feed a small family – and they do not cost the earth.”
“We hope families across the Oasis family and beyond give them a try.”
Winner of this year’s Great British Bake Off, Peter Sawkins, gives the idea his seal of approval, recording a short video of support at the beginning of each meal.

This is not the first time an Oasis academy has shared some great recipe ideas. Oasis Academy Oldham’s Food and Nutrition subject leader, Mrs Hough, has produced a Budget Meal Cookbook which is available on the Oasis Academy Oldham website here.
She includes a shopping list that creates five meals for under £15, and includes recipes for biscuits, pies, cupcakes, houmous, pizza and goujons.
