  • Estimated Cost $4.50

This easy side dish is perfect alongside chicken, fish or tofu, but it makes an equally satisfying vegetarian entree when tossed with whole wheat pasta and goat cheese. I like to make a double batch on a rainy Sunday afternoon and eat it all week. Oh, and it makes your kitchen smell fabulous.

  • 10 fingerling potatoes scrubbed, halved and cut into large chunks $1
