I love having mince meat in the fridge because it’s so easy and quick to whip up a healthy, high protein meal. Especially when I’m busy during the week and don’t have more than 10 minutes to get a meal cooked and in the belly! This quick beef mince stir fry is the perfect solution for weeknight dinners and I often find myself eating it most of the week in various combinations. One of my favourites is to throw in a tablespoon of natural organic peanut butter at the end of cooking – delicioussss!

You can of course use organic chicken, turkey or even pork mince if you prefer and experiment with trying other veggies. I like chopping them up into small pieces so it cooks fast. You only need 1 pan to cook this, so it’s nice and quick to clean up too … I may or may not have eaten this straight out of the pan before to save washing a bowl …
