Chickpeas and quinoa
Melisse made chickpeas and quinoa with feta, parsley, and lemon

A few weeks ago we learned about Slow Food’s challenge to make (and host) a healthy dinner for just $5 on Saturday, September 17. Well, the time is nearly here!

Today, we spied Food 52‘s compilation of Cheap Never Looked So Classy $5 recipes—including a got-to-make-it Kale and Quinoa Pilaf!

And we’ve been experimenting with our own. (Check out Melisse’s dish with chickpeas and veggies over quinoa.)

But we’re wondering, how would you maximize a meal on $5? (You can exclude pantry staples like olive oil from the bill.)
