Ingredients is the key in almost every recipe..... especially the frugal ones! The best choice which also involves the most amount of commitment, is to grow your own vegtables. For those of us who aren't crazy about the whole gardening thing at this point in life a great option is your local famers market. I was able to get a majority of the vegtables I needed from my parent's garden minus a few odds and ends which I picked up at the farmers market.
