Beef and Mushroom Banh Mi Bowl

With food prices going through the roof, I’m always on the lookout to save money but still eat healthy-ish. I’m a big fan of buying local foods and supporting Canadian agricultural products. With our weak loonie, it makes sense to buy Canadian foods, like lentils, barley,  local vegetables and Canadian beef (note: this post is partly sponsored by Canada Beef).

 

This Vietnamese-style banh mi bowl features ground beef, which is wallet and family-friendly. It’s also a source of high-quality protein, iron and vitamin B12 among other nutrients. Medium ground beef is often less pricey, so cook it up and drain off some of the fat.

 

Cooking ground beef with mushrooms and other vegetables makes it go further. Plus you’re getting the benefits of vegetable and immune-boosting selenium from mushrooms. Serve with Canadian barley (a whole grain), and top with shredded carrots and cabbage. It’s a great way to fill half your bowl with vegetables.

 

I recently showcased this recipe on Canada AM along with a few other money-saving meals.
