Meal planning with mince

Mince is a fantastically versatile meat. It is cheap compared to other meat cuts and meal planning with mince is super easy. You can buy it in a variety of meats, and you can get lots of delicious vegetarian and vegan alternatives now. Any of the below featured easy beef mince recipes can be made with Quorn, or suitable meat equivalent.

I love to do my best to make meat stretch further. It saves money and means we reduce our environmental impact slightly too. Also, by switching to 5% fat mince where possible we’ve been able to reduce our calorie intake from our favourite meals! Adding vegetables too means we’ve increased the health benefits from our favourite meals, and we are saving some money too.
