Do you ever have one of those days when you haven’t planned your main meal, you get home from work and go to the fridge and think… “what’s for dinner?”

Well the other night was one of them and I ended up making a one pan meal


500g/1 pound minced/ground beef

1 large onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 large egg plant, cubed

1 courgette, cubed

1 red bell pepper, large diamonds

1 can chopped tomatoes

1 large handful Basil

250ml/1 cup beef stock

1 tsp paprika

1-2 tbsp Olive Oil

In a wok heat oil, add onion and slowly fry until tender.

Add garlic and red pepper and fry for 2-3 mins

Add beef and brown thoroughly

Add courgette and egg plant and fry for 1-2 mins

Add tomatoes, stock basil and paprika

Bring up to a slow boil and simmer for 25-30 mins


You could serve this with cauliflower rice or you could top with grated cheese
