Welcome to number 8 of my weekly posts – I’ve got some great recipes from you guys so far and I am looking forward to seeing more as this week we are introducing a linky for the very first time!

Today’s recipes both include rice. Something my kids are not huge fans of, unless in these formats! Go figure.


2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 chinese cabbage, shredded
1 carrot, grated
1 small red capsicum, diced
3 cups cooked brown rice
2 tbs light soy sauce
2 tbs ketjap manis (indonesian sweet soy)
1/2 cup cashew nuts, lightly toasted
6 spring onions

Heat oil in large wok over high heat.
Add cabbage, carrot & capsicum & stirfry for 1-2 minutes.
Add soy, ketjap manis & cashews & half spring onions & toss to combine.
To serve , garnish with spring onions & extra ketjap manis.

My own changes:
I leave out the last 2 ingredients until after I have served the kids and then add some sweet chilli sauce as well.
- I also like to add peas & mini corn
(novelty with kids).
- I often substitute the cabbage for bean shoots (the kids think they are noodles).
- It is meant to have brown rice to make it super healthy, but I think it takes too long to cook & the kids don’t touch it, so I just use jasmati rice. If you are feeling super healthy – go for it!

This recipe was originally from Sanitarium – they have some fantastic recipes that are easy to follow, Aussie & all vegetarian!

My mince porcipine recipe is simply:
500grams mince, 1/2 cup rice, grated onion, salt and pepper.
Mix together well and roll into small balls.
Pop into a casserole dish and pour over a tin of tomato soup and a tin of water.
Cover and cook for an hour or so.
Careful, they are super hot when they come out!

Exactly the kind of recipe we are after. Simple and easy peasy!

Now you can get in on it too!
For the very first time I have decided to give the old Linky a go! So today, or sometime this week, link your easy peasy recipe down below, so that we can all give it a go! Don’t forget to link back to here in your post so others can join in the fun and have access to some great new easy dinner recipes! Feel free to just link up an old post that you’ve written if it contains what we’re after!

    My boys love this salmon in foil recipe. We all do – it is certainly an easy peasy dinner winner in our house. It would nice if fresh salmon and ocean trout were a little cheaper in Australia (like the UK where I learnt it) but certainly nice to have in the mix of dinners.

    Great idea – if I get around to it (!) I'll link up one of mine – maybe my all time favourite pizza post, just for starters. Now that I know you're doing a linky, I'll start taking photos of dinner!

    A recipe link is a fab idea! I've linked the Acceptable Pasta Bake (hope everyone gets the joke…) I'm scrolling around the other Easy Peasy Dinners and I'm thinking you're my new best friend!!!!
