Easy Recipes Tips
For This Healthy Dinner Recipe

  • Ground beef is delicious and healthy but only if you use premium grade lean mince meat.  Don't waste time de-fatting and stay healthy - always go for the best quality meat

  • If you really must, this is how to de-fat minced meat. Throw the meat onto a hot shallow skillet or frypan so that there's lots of room for contact with the pan. Stir and you'll find the fat oozing out. When the meat is cooked ( and it takes only minutes), pour the juices into a wide mouthed jar. Chill in the refrigerator to separate the fat from the juices. See the thick creamy white layer - that's the cholesterol rich layer of fat. Remove the fat and discard immediately. The juices are tasty and can be used to make gravy or to add to your cooking as stock

  • Always have in your pantry staples like peas, tomato paste and olives. They add such depth of flavor and interest to a dinner recipe

  • Other must haves for any dinner recipe, are garlic granules and dried oregano - you'll use them again and again for most dinner recipes

  • To keep a dinner recipe healthy, cook lightly. That means there is no need to over cook food. Keep it natural and taste the fresh original healthy flavors of herbs, tomatoes, eggs, leafy greens, corn fed chicken and so on

  • What I also love about a dinner like this 20 minute healthy dinner recipe is the minimal washing up!
