The $20 family dinner challenge

To help your budget go further we asked Coles Cooking Club member Kerri Remigio to come up with family-friendly dinners for less than $5 per serve* for a family of four. 

1. Quick and easy tuna casserole

An easy tuna casserole will never do you wrong. Especially when it is full of hearty ingredients that will keep the whole family happy. 

2. Lamb moussaka

Lamb and eggplant topped with a creamy cheese sauce, this easy moussaka recipe is inspired by a Greek dish that is absolutely scrumptious. 

3. Roast vegetable salad with croutons and crumbed chicken

This is not your typical roast vegetable salad. Levelled up with croutons and crumbed chicken this recipe is great for so many different occasions. 

4. Spinach and cheese wellington

Nothing beats a wellington recipe. Especially this vegetarian wellington, with spinach and cheese. Warming and delicious. 

5. Teriyaki beef and broccoli stir-fry with sesame noodles

Rich in teriyaki flavours, this beef stir recipe fry is too tasty to resist. Packed with veggies and noodles a quick dinner has never tasted so good.
