I love this meal. its yummie, filling, easy to make and freezable (just defrost the evening before you want to eat it). Serve with free pasta on a green / extra easy day and if you have any of your healthy extra cheese left over, sprinkle it over the top.

teaspoon or two of easy garlic
75g of dried soya mince
1 large Onion or 2 small onions diced into small chunks
2 x Carrots peeled and diced into small chunks
2 x Courgette cut into small chunks
1 x Red Pepper cut into small chunks (or use frozen as cheaper in the long run)
Handful of chopped mushrooms (optional)
2 tins of chopped tomatos
125ml of vegetable stock
tablespoon of dried herbs de provence / mixed herbs / basil
sprinkle of salt / pepper
1 x Tomato puree

  1. Place the soya mince in a bowl, cover with boiling water and leave to soak for a couple of minutes. Drain and put to the side to use later.

  2. Fry the onion and garlic in plenty of fry light for about 4 minutes or until softened

  3. Add the diced carrots, courgette, peppers and mushrooms, fry for another 4 minutes or until slightly softened (adding more fry light when nescessary)

  4. add the soya mince, 2 x tins of chopped tomatos, herbs, salt and pepper, and enough of the vegetable stock to cover. Stir Well and bring to the boil. Reduce Heat, Cover and Simmer for a further 15 mins.

  5. Once Cooked add the tomato puree to thicken and stir. add more seasoning if required.
