I don't know about you, but it seems to me that feeding the family seems to be getting rather complicated. By this I mean that the recipes seem to be turning into copies of gourmet restaurant meals, needing all manner of complicated ingredients and the photos of the end product look like they are barely enough to feed a flea let alone teenage boys and men! I believe in keeping food simple. That means - less time spent preparing, less time clearing up afterwards and less time on my feet! There are all manner of enterprising recipes for those with the time and energy to create them for those on the GAPS diet, but for busy people, I want to show you that you can eat well, enjoy your food and all without spending hours at the stove. This post will provide you with plenty of ideas for easy meals to prepare in under an hour, or that cook themselves leaving you free to do other things. These recipes can be enjoyed by all.
Do remember that when you are doing GAPS, your personal list of tolerated foods will be different to other people, so when followingh these recipes, please replace items your family cannot tolerate with something they can if possible.
By far one of the most simplest:
For 8 servings
2 packs 500g mince (beef/lamb/turkey/pork etc..)(1kg total)
onion (frozen makes it even quicker)
2 tsp sea salt
herbs (of your choice - sage for beef/turkey, mint for lamb for example)
Simply squish the mince with the onion/herbs/salt/pepper straight into a large baking dish (save on wahing up!). Flatten it (as above) and pop it into the oven for 30 mins Gas 6, Fan 180C, 400F until cooked through and there are no pink juices.
Serve with baked squash/carrots, greens of choice and plenty of butter. Tomato puree straight from the bottle makes a good tomato sauce.
Pour fat from dish over meal as gravy.
