This Green Bean Risotto is a wonderfully easy meal with the delicious hint of pesto. It is perfect for a meat-free Spring dinner with a side of fresh salad but could also be incorporated with a favourite cut of meat. The method below is for traditional cooking but it doesn’t take long to get it […]
As we finally exit the coldness of Winter, the truth can be seen – my coat isn’t the only layer I need to shed. I’ve been doing some serious eating over the colder months and indulging my sweet tooth probably more than necessary. A chocolate girl at heart, cacao is usually my go-to but I’m […]
Strawberries are back in season and it is such a popular fruit with kids as well as adults. It’s unfortunate that our Aussie farmers are suffering after recent strawberry tampering. We’ve all seen the recent media coverage of growers having to dump ridiculous amounts of strawberries. How about we support our farmers, still buy strawberries, and […]
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!
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.
This is one of my favourite sauces because it is so tasty and you can make it in the time it takes to cook your pasta. It is an excellent one to whip up on a busy work night. We usually serve it with homemade ricotta gnocchi or ravioli. In fact, it is a great meat-free […]
This is a modified version of Butter Chicken. It is an excellent dish to warm you up and ward away the last of those pesky Winter bugs. As it is cooked in the slow cooker, it is a great dinner when you have a cruisy morning to organise it and perhaps a busy evening. The […]
This week in our Meet The Farmer Series we meet family-run business, Busch Organics, which has been an advocate for growing produce organically for decades. If you read their story I’m sure you will be moved by the family’s dedication to: the environment, their produce and their customers, by choosing to follow methods that benefit […]
Are you looking to do something a little different with your vegetables? Do you want to entice your children to think more lovingly about cauliflower and broccoli? If you answered ‘yes’ to either of these questions, then this Cheesy Broccoli and Cauliflower recipe is for you. If you have a Thermomix and can whip up […]
