Happy April lovelies…we are already in the second quarter of 2017. What joy 🙂
So as busy mums, we are always looking for creative ways to improve our family’s eating habit, whatever will be simple, quick, colourful and healthy!…Now I have to throw in this brief story as it leads on to the recipe I will be sharing.
Last month (March) a very good friend of mine Alex of Madamori skincare and soveignheights (events planning) on Instagram hosted a The Smart Money Woman book signing tour in Manchester. Fabulous event attended by lots of women and mums.
In our little creative way, I made customised Traycees- Smart Money Woman (Healthy for less) recipe card (for the goodie bags) which was 2 sided
1 side- Potato/ beef & vegetables (PBV) casserole
1 side- 7 day Spa water challenge- inspired by my Instagram page in January 2017. You can check it out later (TrayceesFoodFashion)
You would agree with me that to be a Smart Money Woman, you would need to be Smart with you food “eating healthy for less” “wink”. Well I got some great feedback about the recipe card, the uniqueness and how easy it was to make recipe 🙂

When I tried out the PBV casserole, it was super yummy as the children will say.
I did the fish casserole (recipe here) so I thought to try a mince casserole for the family
Here goes the quick recipe
A pack of mince
A vegetable casserole mix pack which consists of suede, baby potatoes, carrots, leeks, onions
A tin of tomatoes (blended with one scotch bonnet)- Preferably use fresh tomatoes
1 scotch bonnet (for heat)
HSS: 1 small cut ginger (crushed); 2 cloves of garlic (crushed); 3 sprig thyme, 1 teaspoon parsley, 1 teaspoon oregano, 1 teaspoon curry powder, sea salt
In a heated pan, add 1 tablespoon olive oil, then sauté chopped onions, the veg mix and some parsley
Add the tomato blend, mix and allow to start simmering.
Then add curry powder and the HSS.
Cook on low heat until the vegetable are fairly soft. It should take up an additional 15minutes to get the vegetables nicely crunchy
In another heated pan, add 1 tablespoon olive oil.
Rinse the mince and sauté for about 5 minutes in a little oregano and little sea salt. Take off heat.
[if there is any stock from the mince, pour it into the mince casserole]
Add the mince to the casserole, simmer for 5-8 minutes
And its readylicious
We had it with spaghetti 😉
Great quick recipe for the family- Give it a try this school holiday and let me know how you get on!
Oh and for the records…. If you have an event, book launch, product launch coming up and you need customised recipe cards from Traycees… get in touc
