Thursday 28th April - porridge, curry mince, savoury mince, meatballs, pastry rolls

Breakfast - porridge

Bought a load of mince so made
Lunch - curried mince (with extras for the freezer).

1 tsp coriander seeds, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 2 cloves of garlic, chop
Add one onion and chop
Add oil, saute 3 mins
Add 800g mince, 1 tbsp curry powder, 2 tbsp curry paste, 1 tin of tomatoes
Cook 20 mins, 100 degrees, reverse, sp 1.

(really impressed by this and will make a good few meals worth for us, the kids aren't big meat eaters, so happy to have rice and veg with a few tablespoons of the sauce).

Dinner - Savoury mince (bolognaise type)
2 cloves garlic, 1 chili deseeded and chop
Add one onion and one green capsicum and chop
Add oil and saute
Add 600g mince, tin tomatoes, paprika and mixed herbs.
Cook 20 mins, 100 °, reverse, speed 1.

So tonight had the mince with corn chips and salad (nachos). Also used some on puff pastry with cheese and capsicum to make savoury rolls for the girls for lunch tomorrow at school.
The rest went into the freezer.

And with the rest of the mince made meatballs.

chopped garlic and onion and bread.
Added mince, worcester sauce and tomato sauce and mixed.
Made into balls.
We will have one lot of these tomorrow night, the second lot went into the freezer.

So loads of easy meals in the freezer ready for busy nights.
Amazing how far you can make $14 worth of mince go!!!!


  1. What a great use for all that mince, Zan! I really like the simple way you wrote up your recipes, too. Very easy to follow especially for new Thermomix cooks. Well done! May we have second helpings, please??

  2. Thanks. I'm not great at recording speeds and things but hope it gives the general idea of how it's made.
