A healthy mashed potato alternative, a delicious cauliflower puree recipe.

    The cauli puree is a great substitute for mashed potatoes (pity my children don’t love it as much as I do). Another thing to do is to make “cauliflower rice”. Boil the cauliflower in salted water – but only until it is just tender. Then drain well and process in a food processor until it resembles grains of rice. This is a healthy alternative to serve with stir fries and other indian / asian meals.ReplyCancel

      Julie what a fantastic tip! Thank you for sharing, Cauliflower rice sounds amazing!! I can’t wait to try it now xReplyCancel

  • Abbie

    as an alternative to plain mash I often do part potato part turnip, just gives it a slightly different favour & my daughter doesn’t even notice!ReplyCancel

  • Susan White

    Looks really healthy and that`s important for me. Do you think that if I replace potatoes with pumpkin is will work also?
    Have a nice day girls!

  • I love mashed sweet potato! It’s my favourite, however pureed cauliflower is a close second. Yummy stuff!!

      I have to agree with you Nicole, sweet mashed potato is one of my favourites too. But so nice to have another healthy alternative.:)ReplyCancel

Sweet and sour meatball recipe is enough to feed a family of 5 for 2 nights, serve with potato & vegetables then reheated on bread rolls the following night.

  • Tracey

    I also love the idea of the vegetables over the meatballs, so simple and trying this for the first time as meatballs are a quick and easy meal for my 3 kids (11, 8 and 4)… I have been going through your meal planning/recipes and I can proudly say I have 2 weeks orgainsed as I wrote down all the meat I have in my freezer and just worked around what my kids likes :)ReplyCancel

    • Tracey

      Just letting you know Katrina, my Kids loved it and so did my partner! A winner in this house and looks like it will be a favourite too. I also added both red and green capsicum for colour :)ReplyCancel

      • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

        Fantastic! It is such a easy and delicious meal, perfect mid week dinner.:)ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      That is wonderful, Tracey! I am so happy to har you have meal planned for the next two weeks! YAY i’m excited to hear that!.:) xReplyCancel

  • Julia K

    Lovely recipe Katrina ! I made these tonight and just added some red capsicum for colour. I used a mixture of Pork and Veal Mince to carry on the Asian theme of the recipe. As DH is working away from home – I used 1kg of mince and made two batches – we had one tonight and the other is in the freezer.
    I particularly loved this recipe because I could assemble it earlier in the day. When I got home from soccer training with my two youngest kiddos – I cooked up some rice and pre-heated the oven. Then I popped the meatball dish in the oven as I left to collect my eldest DD from dance practice. When we arrived home – dinner was practically on the table !
    Did you make this recipe up ? It’s a winner in my book – well done !!!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      That is wonderful, Julia! It is a real winner in my house too.:) I love the idea of adding red capsicum, i too love to have a bit of colour in my meals, i think it looks nice on the plate.:)ReplyCancel

  • Sherelle Lock

    Can this be frozen?ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Absolutely, Sherelle.:)ReplyCancel

  • Kylie

    Great idea! I do something similar but put it in the slow cooker instead. YUM! We get 2 meals out of it too.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Great idea in making them in the slow cooker! I love how it makes a lot, perfect for leftovers or to freeze and have another night!ReplyCancel

  • Jenny

    I love all of your easy recipes. Could I add a suggestion? I see you have a print button to print the recipe but what if you want to save the recipe in a folder for later? Could you possibly add a button to make it easier to save the recipe for later use.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Hi Jenny, That is a fantastic idea! I don’t have a save button but it is something i could look into. The other alternative is you can save recipes in Evernotes.ReplyCancel

I LOVE curried sausages, would have to be one of my favourite meals.  With the kids busy after school commitments of late I have been trying to create recipes that I can quickly prepare and then spend time helping them with homework.  This recipe is great, all you have to do is brown the sausages, mix […]

 Through my childhood I was always served meat and 3 veg.  And I must admit sausages or chicken schnitzel, mash and vegetables would have to be one of my favourite weeknight meals.  However, sometimes I like to fancy it up and this Chicken & Coconut Curry Meatballs is exactly that.

    Yum! Love a good rissole! I like putting smoky paprika in my burgers and rissoles – but that might just be a phase! I’ve been adding it to lots of things recently. Poor Mrs Romance.ReplyCancel

  • Anne

    I also like to add finely chopped parsley and rosemary….but then again I’d most likely add in diced capsicum and shredded carrot as well…any way I can sneak in extra vegies!ReplyCancel

  • Jacqui

    I also like to add grated vegies including carrot, zucchini, capsicum… Worcestershire sauce is also good and my secret ingredient is a large dollop of ricotta.ReplyCancel

    Sound great but serves 5??? We are a family of four and when we have rissoles I have to use 1 kilo.ReplyCancel

A friend of mine introduced me to panko breadcrumbs.  The best way to describe they are like a flaky breadcrumb with a crisp and crunchy end result.  I added some panko crumbs to chicken tenderloins, oven baked them and they were so good!  You can find step by step details below. Ooh and…. the kids loved […]

I found this recipe on the back of a Gravox Pepper Steak Gravy mix packet many years ago, it’s absolutely delicious and a nice ‘occasional’ accompaniment to a good piece of steak. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo when I cooked it recently, however on my endeavour to see if Gravox had a photo (which they […]

    Its like you read my mind… I was just looking for a slow cooker recipe for silverside / corned beef as I got a slow cooker for my birthday last week!!

    Can I put the beef in for longer than 6-8 hours or will it ruin the meat?

    Thanks
    Kylie
    PS LOVE YOUR SITE :) xxReplyCancel

    • No, I usually put mine on around 9am and eat 6.30pm and it’s perfect.ReplyCancel

      • Kylie

        Thanks Katrina :) Am cooking this tomorrow hopefully it all goes perfectly :) xReplyCancel

  • Wendy

    make sure you use brown sugar and brown vinegar. Also adding golden syrup (instead of or along with the brown sugar) and half an orange works beautifully.ReplyCancel
