Mexican Taco Bowl

Taco lovers, have you tried a Mexican Taco Bowl? It is a healthy and easy take on the original and much less messy! It doesn’t take too long to throw together, especially if you have rice at the ready. Cook it up for the family for a refreshing summer dinner. Alternatively, prep it on Sunday for a few lunches during the week. These toppings for the bowl are delish but you can change it up with whatever you fancy: substitute rice for quinoa, add some mixed lettuce leaves, or top with vegan cream cheese instead of cheese and sour cream for a dairy-free meal. Let fussy eaters choose their own toppings or eat it deconstructed. It’s a great meal to eat on the back deck on a warm evening and another bonus is that there’s not much washing up. Buen provecho!

San Choy Bow with Cabbage

San Choy Bow with cabbage

As a mum I am constantly trying to find ways to get my children to eat a wide range of vegetables. My last couple of attempts with cabbage didn’t go over so well. Firstly, I tried the lovely gluten free goodness of cabbage noodles (literally cabbage chopped into ribbons and softened in a pan) with our usual beef stroganoff recipe. Needless to say my husband nor children wanted to partake in eating the tasty spaghetti alternative. My last attempt of coleslaw atop of baked potatoes didn’t go over well with anyone else either and I had a surplus of coleslaw salad lunches for myself for days while my family members digested their unhealthy bacon and cheese topping instead.

When I read that cabbage would be a new addition to the Organic Place mixed bag this week, these past experiences immediately came to mind and I resolved that I would once again try to sneak cabbage into my family’s diet. However, this time I decided I may have to be a little bit James Bond about it all, and disguise it carefully within an exciting hands-on and delectable experience.
