How do I ever go back!! In-fact I think my taste-buds have had too much of the “Good Stuff” and I begin to feel the difference when I go out. Unless of course I’m fortunate enough to Enjoy Organic!!

OK let’s quickly look at Pickling, Fermenting and Canning. I think these topics deserve a lot more. In the next few posts I will endeavour to give them some justice. This month however there are heaps of cucumbers in season ready to pickle. When we look at fermenting, fruit are the way to go to give beautiful flavour to Kombucha, Mulled Wine or Mead. This September Strawberries and Raspberries make wonderful jams and spreads where the their wonderful flavours are locked in to last.

Pepitas – A great Source of Zinc

Every Day I enjoy a whizzed up drink. You read right: ENJOY!! It tastes great! I should be more creative here and experiment with cocoa and other fruit!!

Pepita Zinc Link Drink

Ingredients

1/3 cup pepita seeds

1/2 banana

1/2 cup whey protien mix

10 dates

2/3 cup water

Method

1. Process all ingredients and drink within 10 minutes.

This is so Yummy. I would never have thought! It sure makes a great Breakfast or Lunch. There’s a lot of protein in there to build muscle but I guess I have a whole side of muscle to build up. Better go and get back to the exercise.

LASAGNE: The Quick and Easy Cousin!!

I have watched and tasted Traditional Lasagne that is cooked All day. It’s true! It’s Delicious but do we have the time in today’s modern culture to cook all day? Do we cook for 20 or 30 or 40 people who just happen to be all satisfied with the same meal? It’s hard to find places where this still happens in today’s modern and fast paced world. 

Let’s have a go at a far Easier and Quicker Cousin to the traditional. For more Home-Style recipes like this which are Quick and Easy, Wholesome and simply Delicious download Cooking Pot the iPhone App here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cookingpot/id586052832?mt=8

Beef Lasagne - Cooking Pot's Quick and Easy Cousin

Beef Lasagne – Cooking Pot’s Quick and Easy Cousin

OK this recipe does take longer than 30 minutes but this is also an opportunity to cook more!! Refrigerate or Freeze for later as a Main Meal or divide into Lunch portions when needed. When you feel like Lasagne simply reheat, add a salad and Who-La!!

All those busy days can now be stress-free and you’ll find more pennies in your pocket as an added bonus! Please use Organic or home grown ingredients whenever possible.

 

Beef Lasagne

Ingredients

500g minced beef

1 onion, chopped

oil for cooking

375g lasagna sheets

600ml thickened cream

1 cup cheddar cheese, grated

herb finely chopped ie rosemary, oregano

salt and black pepper to taste

½ – 1 tsp ground nutmeg

550g jar favourite pasta sauce

or

2 tins diced tomato or 10 fresh

1 carrot, finely diced

1 large potato, finely diced

½ capsicum, finely diced

Method

  1. In a fry pan cook the onion and mince.
  2. Reduce heat and add pasta sauce and seasoning. If making your own sauce place ingredients in separate saucepan with oil and cook until soft.
  3. Place cream in a saucepan and stir with cheese salt and pepper and nutmeg. Stir and reduce a little.
  4. Place a tiny bit of meat sauce and spread in a baking tray to prevent the pasta sheets from sticking. Layer pasta sheets, meat and sauce. Sprinkle with extra cheese and herbs and bake in a moderate oven for 45 minutes or until done.

This is one recipe where I add heaps of veggies and make as much as will fit in my oven. One is always frozen and one is left in the fridge for a quick lunch. After all that lasagne I have a 2-3 month break but having said that let’s ‘step out of the box’, there are some great variations that don’t necessarily contain meat or tomato!
