Made this for dinner tonight, with smoked bacon and it was delicious! Cost just over 75p per portion and we have enough left for lunch tomorrow. Quite small portions though, so if you're a hearty eater or are making this for guests I would make maybe double for 4 people or bulk it out with more vegetables on the side :) Really enjoyed it though, so thanks for the idea!
