One-Pan Mince & Cabbage

One-Pan Mince & CabbageThis the sort of dish that comes together quickly and is extremely flexible – great for a week night meal when there are unexpected mouths at the dinner table.

You could add bulk by adding other vegetables such as grated carrot and chopped zucchini and in the winter when tomatoes are out-of-season use a can of diced tomatoes instead – if using canned
tomatoes no need to use the stock.

  1. This looks like a great midweek family meal and I love how you can chop and change the recipe to adapt to the seasons. If only I could get my husband to eat cabbage! It’s the only thin he won’t eat – too much of it forced on him by his mother when he was growing up – she thought cabbage needed to be served at every meal! xx
