I’m always trying to think of dinners I can make in advance, so when I get home late after gym all I need to do is re heat, and maybe chuck a few other ingredients in!

I look online a lot for inspiration and came across a one pot dish that inspired me to recreate my own. I make this a day ahead, and reheat on the hob when I get home from the gym the following evening.

It does have a slight kick, so I would advise leaving out the chilli powder if spice isn’t your thing! & if you want it spicier I would add some fresh chilli 🌶


(Serves 1)

  • 125g 5% lean beef mince
  • Half Aubergine chopped
  • Half Courgette chopped
  • 125g Chopped tomatoes
  • 1 Tsp hot paprika
  • 1 1/2 Tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 Tsp curry powder (fodmap friendly – I use one from waitrose)
  • 1/2 Tsp fodmap friendly chilli powder
  • 50g quinoa (cooked weight)
  • Handful spinach (optional)
    Spray the pan with fry light, or any other oil you want to use. Add your mince and cook for a few minutes browning all over.
    Add all your spices, and your courgette and aubergine. Mix all together and cook until the mince is browned all over
    Once the mince is browned add your chopped tomatoes and allow to simmer for around 40 minutes – 1 hour (this will allow your veg to cook)
    Add your already cooked quinoa and a handful spinach, stir in and leave to simmer for a few minutes more
      Season as required, and enjoy
