Garlic Veggie Breakfast Sides

This is such a fantastic idea for when you’re cooking for a crowd – the pan is cleared for your eggs and whatnot, and nothing requires monitoring or flipping – it’s just baked into a molten, golden, garlicky mess of delicious veg. It’s best to add your spinach in batches, as it does take up […]

Roast Veg and Egg Pie

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!

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.

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.
