Super Easy Chilli Beef

This really is the perfect dish. Ready in minutes, delicious on its own and the perfect accompaniment to a baked sweet potato. The Cashew Sour Cream is a must have and this recipe makes plenty for you to with the experiment with during the week. If you are feeling more adventurous, you can make homemade guacamole using avocado, tomatoes, coriander, lemon and salt, but I’m perfectly happy with a simple avocado mash. Add this to your menu plan for next week – you won’t regret it.

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

  1. To make the mince: heat oil in a large pan and lightly brown garlic. Add mince and lightly brown, stirring throughout. Add tomatoes and tomato paste, herbs and spices. Simmer for 10 minutes, turn off heat and set aside. Add vegies, stir through and set aside to cool.

    One of the only things I buy from the supermarket! You can find them near the pasta sauces.
