Whilst I’m technically not a vegetarian I eat very little meat. Our meals heavily revolve around vegetarian meals or easily tweaked meals so the family still gets their meat intake without having to make two completely different meals.
With a stocked vegetable crisper and weekend freezer prep, I can always knock up something on the fly quickly and some of my favourites are below. If you would like to see a week’s worth of meals prepped in 5 hours, I’ve written a detailed step by step on my website wholehomeau.com (home of the best Heavy Duty Thermomix Travel Bag 😉 )
Low carb tip: serve with cauli rice or on cabbage noodles
Bulk it tip: Make the sauce then move to stovetop and pack it with all kinds of vegies. I generally add anything green (beans, broccoli, snow peas, Asian greens, zucchini), carrots, capsicum, mushrooms and cauliflower.
Prep ahead tip: During weekend prep make your pastes and freeze in portions. Grab out a portion in the morning and pop it in the fridge to defrost.
You don’t need to follow a LCHF diet to enjoy this gnocchi. It’s incredible simple and flavoursome. Sometimes the ricotta can be a bit wet. If you find the gnocchi melts a little, let it cool and roll then give them a quick pan fry.
Bulk it tip: Serve with steamed or pan fried vegetables.
Prep ahead tip: During weekend prep make gnocchi and freeze raw in 2 portions. Grab out a portion in the morning and pop it in the fridge to defrost.
Budget Tip:You can buy bulk nuts from Costco at a great price. I’ve put together the ultimate Costco shopping guide if you are interested in what I buy from Costco 🙂
