Throw Together Meals

Sometimes, we just throw our meals together.

And I don’t mean carelessly, or without thought. More referring to the food we make when we are short on time, mismatching foods or simply finishing up left overs to clean out the fridge.

Last night, I had a cheap cut of meat, which I slow cooked for a few hours, and added some herbs and tomato pasteΒ to make a gravy. In the last 20 minutes I threw in some thinly sliced veges to soften, and steamed some cauli and sweet potato on the stove to make a mash. Topped with some quark (European style cottage cheese) and it was so tasty!

Today for lunch, we had an odd half zucchini sitting in the fridge. I sliced it up, topped with koy cheese and paprika and grilled it for 10 minutes. It came out toasty, and I added fresh parsley, spring onions and pepitas.

It’s great to share simple and easy meals. They don’t have to skimp on nutrition, quality or flavour. Share with us your go to ‘throw together’ meals!
