Soup and salami sandwich (total cost 39p)
- 1 sachet of tomato soup – 16p
- Mini baguette – 7p (precooked at home)
- 3 Salami slices – 10p
- Boiling water
I am in the habit of buying precooked baguettes which I use for breakfast. Buying them in this way is much more economical and I only bake what I need. They come in packs of 4 mini rolls or 2 half baguettes and cost 40 pence in Lidl. They take 10 minutes to bake in the oven… while putting my makeup on or getting dressed. So, if I am getting my breakfast ready, I will just bake enough to include my lunch. Feel free to use English bread for an easier alternative.
For this lunch, my baguette is already precooked and cold. Slice it and spread with butter, then add 3 slices of salami. Pack in foil, place in the lunch box with the sachet of soup.
At lunch time, empty the content of the sachet of soup in a bowl or a mug. Boil enough water; the equivalent of a cup of tea and slowly pour over the soup while stirring quickly to avoid lumps. Leave to rest for 2-3 minutes, then enjoy with the baguette sandwich.
If the soup is too plain for you add some chilli flakes, salt and freshly grinded pepper.
Next up, Petit pois and smoked haddock.
