Homemade Fish and Chips

Even the most fickle of fish eaters can succumb to delicious crumbed fish and I’m yet to meet a child who doesn’t like hot chips. Whilst the shop version can leave you feeling sluggish, this homemade fish and chips is both a healthier alternative and highly scrumptious! We source our fish from the butcher on […]

Mashed Potato and Carrot Patties

This is a super-fun way to make the most of the tons of crispy, gorgeous, deeply-orange organic carrots in our bags at the moment – this recipe is easily doubled or tripled and the patties do well in the freezer (uncooked) ready for dinner at a moment’s notice. We’ve used a handful of fennel fronds […]

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.

Cheesy White Bean and Leek Casserole

Absolutely nothing beats a creamy, cheesy, bubbling casserole right from the oven for these chilly winter nights. This cannellini-bean version is chock-full of sweet sauteed leeks, garlic and aromatic veg and works well either topped with breadcrumbs and parmesan (as a main) or parmesan and cracked black pepper (as a side). It’s also awesome assembled […]

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.

One Pot Chicken with Rice and Veg

One Pot Chicken with Rice and Veg

On the weekends my husband loves to cook up something different in the kitchen and not long ago he stumbled across a one pot chicken recipe on Taste. It was a relatively quick, easy recipe that involved grilled vegetables from a jar and a certain pre-spiced chicken from a a major supermarket. When everyone inevitably wanted that delicious dish again, and it was my turn to make it, I was lacking the exact ingredients and winged my own whole food, butcher and market version. Okay, and I also threw some extra vegetables in because that is my prerogative as a mother. Side note: it’s still an easy and scrumptious dish that everyone will love, and it’s even better for your insides!
