The woman, Jack Monroe, talks about how she was a food blogger living below the poverty line in the U.K. She is expected to publish a book next year with a selection of her own recipes under the title A Girl Called Jack, the same name as her blog.
A quick browse through her blog and it's absolutely fascinating how creative she is and how affordable the recipes are. It makes you think twice about what you're making for your next meal and how much you really need to spend.
Here is the recipe for the carrot, cumin & kidney bean burger she makes in the video. She says it costs a total of $.09 GBP to make the burger or $0.14 in USD. Still, pretty damn cheap. I'm actually inspired to make it for dinner tonight!
