Quick Tips (154)     
Casseroles are so quick and easy to prepare and everyone loves them - but they can be a health trap. Here's how to make them healthier.

1) Meat - use half as much and trim the fat. Worried about losing flavour? Read on!

2) Vegies - throw in huge servings of whatever vegies your family loves and a tin of tomatoes.

3) Tinned lentils - extra fibre, protein and yumminess.

4) Flavour - garlic, herbs and a small glug of quality red wine.

5) Sides - a portion of quinoa instead of mashed potato. I like tri-colour quinoa - and so do my kids!

Check out my healthy slow cooker beef recipe for inspiration.

Looks dry. Where's the gravy?
My partner actually hates having any sort of liquid in it - so I serve it without. It absolutely not dry, just beautiful moist and tender meat and veg. If you prefer your casserole more soup like you just serve it with more of the liquid from the slow cooker.
