The sainsburys value instant mash is about 20p or something for a big bag and you only need a couple of spoonfuls to thicken things with it. I have used it for soups and stews and it works perfectly. Sprinkle it over, stir, see how things are, sprinkle a bit more over, win. Wont be free on red but for EE and Green is an excellent syn free substitute for cornflour.

On red days I use cauliflower to thicken sauces by mixing cooked cauliflower in with your basic sauce and whizzing in the blender.
