Gazpacho

Cold soup? Sure it sounds a bit strange to a culture that didn’t really grow up with it, but the Spanish can’t have been wrong for all these years! Gazpacho is an incredibly delicious offering, and just the thing for a light meal on a stinking hot day. I like it as cold as absolutely […]

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!

Summery Salad in a Jar

Summery Salad in a Jar | the organic place

How good is walking to the fridge on a hot sunny day to find a salad fully made and ready to go? No faffing and chopping when your’e starving, and no limp lettuce from being pre-prepared too early. Just a crisp, delicious bowl of yum Salads in jars are going to deliver that directly to […]

Simple Spring Salad

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.

Low FODMAP Friendly Beef Burgers and Wedges

As promised, this week we have a Low FODMAP meal for those who follow the diet, or if you are entertaining people who are Low FODMAP and you need a meal to serve them. If neither apply to you, I promise it is still a delish meal to add to your regular recipes. The beef burgers are great by themselves on a bun for your fussy eaters or if you like your burgers full you can squeeze as many fillers as you like in with them. I have also included a simple and scrumptious accompaniment of wedges which are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Yum! Here’s what you need:
