Jack Monroe has been taking part in the Live Below the Line Challenge. For the past several years, she has needed to cook very frugally and has posted some frugal recipes to her blog. Generally the meals are under 50p per serving. Her 9p spiced bean burgers are a favorite.

On the lower right side of her blog page look at entries for late April and May for her adventures on the Live Below the Line Challenge. At the top of the blog is a link to the various recipes.

Leek, Savoy & Smoked Cheese Pasta, 43p
Carrot & Coriander Falafels, 23p
Red Lentil Bolognese, 21p
and more including soups, pastas, curries, chilli, and desserts

Thanks for the link Amaranth. I have bookmarked the recipe pages. I may well have a go at making the veggie burger today, it really did look simple and I have all the ingredients in stock.
