Follow this flow chart for an easy, cheap dinner

We just came across this super helpful flow chart from the good folks at GOOD. It shows you step by step how to cook cheap food that’s tasty and easy to make but gives you more variety than your usual pasta dish: you start with the basic onions and work your way out to other simple ingredients until you’ve got a minestrone, chili con carne or risotto. Before you know it, your menu has more interchangeable parts than a Mr. Potato Head, who, incidentally, would fit in nicely with that beef stew recipe.
