Big Green Breaky

There’s nothing like getting a big, delicious avocado in The Organic Place fruit and veggie bag. I love how they can add that extra tasty goodness to almost anything, as well as all those amazing health benefits. Vitamins, folate, magnesium, potassium; you name it, avocado has it. We love it at our place as a […]

My Organic Story – Alisha

Alisha is our new administration officer at The Organic Place but she is no stranger to an organic lifestyle.

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!
