Beetroot and Leak Budget Casserole

Well, there’s something common with this blog on the food side- we love our budget food! Especially our casseroles and especially when they’re cheap to cook! Today’s budget casserole is the beetroot and leak casserole! Beetroot will also add a nice red shine to the dish as well!

If you want to add a bit of extra goodness to this recipe, then why not add olive bread to it! It especially helps with the spiciness of the casserole if you do add the peppers! There’s a whole list of other sides that would go well with this recipe on our YouTube channel!
