Veggie smuggling, hiding vegetables or stretching meat as it’s so expensive is some thing we all do., right? I never had to hide vegetables from my children but if I did need to, then I’d have done this.
I used 500g of low fat minced beef, two large carrots and one large finely shredded leek and a finely diced onion as it makes the meat go twice as far and gets plenty of vegetables into us. There are plenty of ways of stretching meat, I sometimes add lentil, chickpeas or any range of chopped vegetables and I often use diced frozen vegetables.
Once it’s made, with the usual addition of herbs, garlic and tomatoes, you’d never know it was full of vegetables.
A spag Bol is DB’s favourite supper with a sprinkle of grated cheese and that’s just what we had. There’s loads of ways I stretch meat and this is just one of them.
Now, it’s your turn, what do you do to stretch meat a bit further?
