The chopped vegetables which are added to the bowl melt down  to create a healthy, thick sauce base.

Steam more vegetables to create a bigger meal. Steaming the vegetables keeps them whole, adding texture to the savoury mince making it just like Mum or Gran's recipe you loved when you were little.

Steam any vegetables - pumpkin, kumara, courgette, parsnip - what ever is on hand.

This recipe stretches out a small portion of beef mince.

Serve as is or with polenta or mashed potatoes.

Serve with extra greens - these could be steamed during this cooking process and added as aside to accompany.

Our left overs will be reheated in the thermie and served with a poached egg in the morning.

Mum used to put left over cold savoury mince on my sandwiches for school lunches with lashings of tomato sauce.  You could do this too, without the sauce as the dish it self is tasty enough.

Serve left overs on a large pizza base or mini pizza bases.  My children would adore a savoury mince mini pizza in their lunch box.

Reserve a portion to reheat and put in a thermos cup for school lunches. Great protien and winter lunch for children.

    Very easy and healthy. I found the mince a little too fine despite having on reverse but I can see this may appeal to kids who like a smoother texture. Great meal for winter.

    Very nice recipe thank you.  Sauce was a little runny but I thought something like 2 minutes noodles in it would be perfect.  The kids licked their bowls clean.  Thank you for a great recipe tmrc_emoticons.)

  • A super easy recipe that was

    A super easy recipe that was very well received by my family on a cold, rainy evening when I only had a short time to get dinner on the table. Makes HEAPS, so looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Yummy with an egg on top. Thanks!
