What’s great about it
This versatile dish can help you use up any leftover veggies you might have in the fridge. Perfect for fussy children! You can change the flavour up with a can of crushed tomatoes (or fresh tomatoes), and a clove of garlic for a Bolognese-style mince. Simply add the tomato after the vegetables are mashed up.
Serves: 4 Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes
Fruit and Veggies: 2 ½ serves per portion
500g lean mince

FRY off the mince in a large saucepan then add the chopped onion and cook until translucent.
ADD the diced vegetables with 1 cup of water and the stock cube.
COOK until vegetables become mushy, then mash all the veggies until they thicken the mince.
ADD a little more water if necessary and reheat before serving.
SERVE over wholemeal pasta or brown rice (or for something different try with cauliflower rice or fried cabbage).
