Spag Bowl


Serves 3, Takes less than half an hour!

Ingredients: A really good drizzle of olive oil, 5 ripe tomatoes all chopped up, 2 tbsp tomato paste, 1 handful of fresh herbs (basil and oregano went down very well!), 1 roughly chopped large shallot, 1 fresh garlic clove, 1 tbsp paprika, 2 pitted olives, salt, pepper, 500g beef mince, 2 cups full of finely chopped baby spinach or Swiss chard (get rid of any stalks) 1 packet of soy bean noodles.

Steps: Heat olive oil in a good pan to a low-medium heat. Add the beef mince and cook until beginning to brown, breaking up and stirring with a wooden spoon as you go. Blitz all the remaining ingredients (apart from the noodles and spinach or chard) in your food processor until super smooth. Add the newly formed sauce and leafy greens to the mince, stir it all through to combine, and simmer for about 10 minutes. Keep stirring it every now and then. It should reduce nicely into a thick meat sauce. Cook the noodles in boiling water and drain (it will tell you nitty gritty details on the packet). Serve your tomato-ey mince on the noodles, with a bit of chopped avocado on top if you wish! Enjoy.
