Everyday Spag Bol

This recipe is one of our go to dishes when we want the kids to get a nourishing meal in their bellies. Knowing exactly what goes into your kids food is a great way to keep an eye sugar and salt intake. And home cooking is by far the best way to achieve this. There are a lot of ingredients in this and I know it sounds a bit excessive but this is not from a jar, it is made from scratch. Give it a go and I guarantee you won’t be washing any plates : )

The Ingredients:

300g lean beef mince

2 tins chopped tomatoes

200g cherry tomatoes

2 carrots diced

2 onions diced

3 gloves of garlic

Balsamic vinegar 1 tbsp

Tomato ketchup 1 tbsp

Worcestershire sauce 1 tsp

Cayenne sauce/Tabasco 1 tsp

Thyme 1 pinch

Basil 1 pinch

Mixed herbs 1 pinch

Salt and Black pepper for seasoning

Stock cube, chicken or beef 1 cup

1 tbsp Honey or sugar

Olive Oil

The Make:

Chop cherry tomatoes, garlic, onion and carrots. Pour some oil in pot. Put in veg and cook off until soft. In a separate pot with some oil brown off mince. Drain off any excess juice. Pour in tins of tomato into softened veg. Blitz with stick blender until smooth. Mix in the honey, balsamic vinegar, herbs, tabasco, salt and pepper. Stir in 1 cup of stock. Add in the mince to the sauce and simmer 40 minutes. I like to simmer until the sauce just starts to catch on the side of the pot. Boil up some pasta and serve. Enjoy.
