Briami (Greek Vegetable Stew) Recipe

This melty jumble of Greek-inspired flavours is one of the single greatest (and easiest) ways of eating vegetables.

Organic Cabbage Rolls

Organic Cabbage Rolls

I almost don’t want to do share this recipe it’s just so good, but in the interest of not being a food scrooge and sharing the love here is my MOST FABULOUS recipe for cabbage rolls! There are a lot of recipes and variations out there, my cousin does a fantastic greek lemon version that are to die for, so you can experiment. Good additions are smoked pork bones at the bottom of the pot. Sometimes I add a dash of cayenne pepper, so go to work and create to your hearts content!

Thai Beef and Veg Curry

As we struggle to stay warm during the coldest part of the year, this dish is a welcome addition to your meal plan. I was inspired to make a Thai curry after seeing the coriander in The Organic Place bag this week and I’m so glad we did. With one pot for the curry and the rice done in the rice cooker, not only was it a delicious and hearty meal at the end of a frosty day, there also wasn’t too much to clean up once it was all demolished.

Organic Spaghetti Bolognese

Spaghetti Bolognese is is a hit for everyone in our home. We all love it and for something that is so easy to cook the flavour is amazing. Ben and myself use to have competitions on who could cook the best version then one day Ben added all his secret ingredients (of which I hope he gives me for this recipe post) and what I think is the star of the show, beef ribs and he nailed it! And the longer you cook, the better it will be! I love to cook a big pot and freeze the leftovers for a busy day or for Ben’s lunches throughout the week.

Oma Mary’s Hearty Beef Stew

We are now well and truly into winter which makes me crave comfort food. There’s nothing like a warming dinner at the end of a frosty day. This recipe is my mum’s beef stew, (she is known as Oma to my kids). There are too many variations to include but this is probably my favourite, and the most palatable to my children.
You can cook this in an hour or two on the stovetop but the best way is to chuck it all in a slow cooker in the morning. Go about your business and bask in the delish smells as they take over your house. Rest in the knowledge that all you have to do in the evening is throw some rice in the rice cooker, throw some pasta into the slow cooker half an hour before you want to eat, or if you’re really feeling energetic, you could whip up some mashed potato.
