There isn’t a mother on this planet that is not completely sick and tired of the dreaded “what’s for dinner?” question. Even me, someone who spends her days writing about all things food, has zero inspiration come Friday night.

One of my projects for this year was to get better at meal planning. So far it’s been a moderate failure, but there have been one or two wins. This recipe I made on a whim one evening when I scratched through the freezer and found a seemingly random set of ingredients. It’s turned in to one of our favourite quick, fuss-free mid-week suppers.

A good glug of cooking olive oil
1 tsp crushed garlic
½ fresh, minced green chilli (optional)
1 handful of fresh, chopped coriander leaves
Woolworths savoury frozen rice
4-6 lamb and rosemary sausages – taken out of the casing and rolled into bite-sized meat balls
1 handful of fresh, shredded spinach
1 disc of feta cheese to serve
Freshly cracked black pepper and crushed sea salt to taste
Tzatziki to serve


Add olive oil to the pan
Add the fresh garlic and chilli
Fry the lamb meat balls until golden brown and cooked through
Remove the meat balls from the pan but leave the pan on the heat
Pour the rice into the pan (I use about half the bag for 4 adults) and cook according to pack instructions
Add the spinach and toss through the rice until wilted
Add the meat balls and chopped coriander
Take the pan off the heat
Season with salt and pepper
Crumble over feta and serve with tzatziki 

What are your go to easy eats?
