A CHEF has revealed how to whip up tasty meals using Aldi ingredients – for under £1.
Chef Lorri shared the meals on her TikTok page, Egg Brunch Club, as she and a pal cooked delicious pasta dishes.
Lorri, and budding chef Emma Cargill, headed to the supermarket armed with only a shiny pound coin.
Lorri asked: “£1. What can you actually buy for £1?milk? bread? Maybe! But could you actually make a meal for £1?”
Emma confirmed they can use the salt and pepper from their cupboards, while they also use a glug of oil.
Emma grabbed potatoes, chopped tomatoes and flour for her dish, with the total coming to just 98p.
While Lorri, who also shares recipes on her YouTube and Instagram, picks up some spaghetti, another can of chopped tomatoes and some mozzarella, with her total exactly £1.
Emma boils the spud then peels the skin off, and adds flour to make dough for gnocchi, which she shapes and cuts before frying.
She adds the tomatoes and finishes with some seasoning, while she also pops some basil on top for decoration – which is optional.
Lorri pops the pasta in a pan and boils it in the tomato sauce, before adding the cheese on top and letting it melt in the pan.
She plates up and lets the mozzarella melt on top of the spaghetti, creating a delicious creamy sauce, and she also seasons it before serving.
Lorri is an expert in cooking on a budget, as she recently released a e-book, called Pound Plate, containing 10 recipes you can make for a quid which costs, you guessed, £1.
