As you know after doing the 21 Day Body Reset Plan I found loads of delicious recipes and also created a few of my own! This dish was actually so yummy that I had to write it down and tell you…
Sweet potatoes (one large or two small ones per person)
500g beef mince
250g of chopped mushrooms
1 chopped onion
1 chopped celery stick
1 can of chopped tomatoes
Tablespoon of tomato purée
Teaspoon of the following spices:
Paprika, Italian herbs, mixed herbs, garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Salad (if you like)
Prick and wash the sweet potato and place in the oven at 150C (Fan oven) for one hour, checking on them when necessary.
Then put your 500g of mince in a mixing bowl. Add a teaspoon of paprika, mixed herbs, garlic and then mix and make the meatballs. (This is a super fun meditative process if your looking for some me time) I made around 17 meatballs then placed them in a pan on medium heat. Once they are brown on one side carefully turn them over so they cook nicely.
Chop an onion as small as you can go (without cutting your fingers!) and add them to the meatballs once they are fully brown as well as chopped celery. Once they have cooked for a few minutes add in the chopped mushrooms. I kept these quite big so they tasted meatier but however you fancy. (At this point add in any other veggies you have in the fridge)
Then add some more herbs into the pan; a teaspoon of Italian herbs, mixed herbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste. Then add the tin of chopped tomatoes. I then put another half of the tin amount of water into the pan too. Add in a tablespoon of tomato purée. (At this point it smells divine)
Then bring the whole pan to a boil, pop the lid on and let it simmer for 20 minutes on a low heat. I checked it a few times to make sure it was cooking nicely and season to taste.
Whilst this is simmering and the sweet potatoes are roasting, prepare a simple salad to go with.
Take the sweet potatoes out the oven and cut open so they are ready for the meatballs (you could add knob of butter to the potatoes if you wish). Then take the meatballs in their yummy tomato sauce and spoon them into the sweet potatoes. And enjoy!
If you’re not a fan of beef mince, you could use turkey (healthier) or pork. You could also add a variety of tasty veggies like spinach, kale. This meal is gluten free so perfect for supper and is utterly delicious!
Hope you enjoyed my recipe post, let me know if you make it or have any good variations xxx
