Mushroom and Leek Stuffing

Photo: José Picayo; Styling: Philippa Brathwaite

This delicious yet budget-friendly dish comes to $1.15 per serving. Look for a poultry herb blend in the produce section--one package contains all the herbs you need. Slice leeks and swirl them around in a big bowl of water to wash.
