This Green Bean Risotto is a wonderfully easy meal with the delicious hint of pesto. It is perfect for a meat-free Spring dinner with a side of fresh salad but could also be incorporated with a favourite cut of meat. The method below is for traditional cooking but it doesn’t take long to get it […]
Who can say no to a hearty salad on a hot day? Something refreshing and cooling, but also hefty enough to stop us raiding the refrigerator an hour later is just about the holy grail of salads. Who, then, could say no to a salad that can do all that, but also be served in […]
When our lives get busy it is easy to fall back on ready made food. Luckily for me we have an amazing local cafe that makes delicious home-style pies and pastries which I often buy and freeze for crazy days. I recently bought the most delicious roast veg and egg pie there as a lunch option for myself and saw that they also sold them in a family size. It was simple to heat up in the oven at the end of a work day and serve with some steamed veg from The Organic Place.
It got me thinking I should try and replicate my own pie to freeze. Whilst there is a lot of cooking time, unless you’re using leftover roast veggies, it was very easy to make. This dish is great for Meat Free Monday or to be portioned out for lunches or even breakfast!
As a busy mum we tend not to not put ourselves and our eating habits first. How many of you eat breakfast standing up, have lunch on the run or skip a meal altogether? It’s easy to let our own health slide and to become rundown. Luckily for us, we can rely on The Organic Place to deliver us fresh, delicious, organic produce and products that can give us the extra boost our tired and sleep deprived bodies need.
Of course there’s a million different salad combinations you can try but I really love this one because as well as tasting great, it is full of super ingredients. Eggs are the most amazing food that keep us fuller for longer and provide us with protein and vitamins. Kehoe’s Kitchen beetroot sauerkraut provides us with probiotics for a healthy gut. Avocado and olive oil are good fats. Feta is a delicious touch of dairy. The greens in the salad, of course, are packed with amazing minerals and fibre.
You can throw this salad together in the time it takes to boil an egg, and from there on, you could even eat it one-handed if need be. Mums with clingy bubs, you’ll know what I’m talking about here.
Celebrate the change in Spring weather and whip up this salad for yourself. Your taste buds, and your body, will thank you.
A vegetarian take on a traditional fish pie, this is going to be your new favourite dinner. Summery veg and herbs are simmered in a rich sauce with a hint of cheese, and the whole thing is topped with a savoury buttery mash before making friends in a hot oven. It’s an irresistible combination and […]
It’s pretty hard to beat a savoury stew, but when it’s topped with hot mashed potatoes its nothing but glorious. In fact, the only thing that could make it better is to top the stew with Irish champ mashed potatoes, a cheesy, oniony, potatoey conglomeration of deliciousness. This shepherd’s pie is super easy to make […]
This melty jumble of Greek-inspired flavours is one of the single greatest (and easiest) ways of eating vegetables. Crispy, delicious potatoes are tossed with summery veg like tomatoes, zucchini and herbs and baked until soft and golden, and a bright burst of lemon squeezed over for the finishing touch makes this a dish you will […]
This is the perfect, quick and easy vegetarian dish after a busy day of work or wrangling children. Cook the pasta while the sauce is simmering and before long you will have a delicious, veggie packed meal that everyone will enjoy. You can use a store-bought pesto sauce or create your own from one of […]
