The delicious, simple tomato orzo recipe can feed a family of four at only 63p per portion[/caption]
She said: “Tomato Orzo for 63p per portion! Just £2.52 in total for a family of four!”
You will only need a handful of ingredients for this recipe.
Daisy said: “To make this recipe for four people, you wanna sauté a couple of onions with some garlic.”
“Then add in 350 grams of orzo, a tin of tomatoes and whatever seasoning you’ve got.”
Daisy said she added some basic seasonings but feel free to add some spice if you like.
She said: “I went for some paprika, mixed herbs, salt and pepper.
Next Daisy adds stock. She explained: “Cook that for a couple of minutes before slowly adding in about a litre of vegetable stock.”
Keep testing your orzo to check that it is fully cooked.
“You can add more if you think it needs it, but just cook it through until all of the orzo is cooked.”
The final ingredient tops off the dish.
Daisy said: “Then finally, you can stir through some hard Italian cheese and you’re done.”
The best thing about this dish is you can make easy swaps to suit your needs.
Swap veg stock for chicken stock, orzo for arborio rice and even use up other leftover cheeses.

People made their own suggestions in the comments for small changes to boost the easy dish.
One user said: “A can of butter beans would go well too. Not that expensive and would add protein.”
Another said: “I got all the ingredients so it has to be a sign looks bomb.”
“Yummy!! I do this with sautéed aubergine and I add spinach. (Not as cheap I know but just sharing ideas),” suggested a third.
