Organix Recipe Bases and Paste Pots – Recipe 1!

Organix have a great new range available, they’re called Recipe Bases and Paste Pots. The idea is to take the strain out of home cooking by only needing to add basic ingredients!

This post features a recipe we invented using a paste pot, each pack of paste pots contains two different flavours, and two recipe suggestions, but I wanted to show that they are really versatile.

Here’s our recipe for Goriami Lamb Casserole!

Organix Tomatoey Red Paste
200g Diced Lamb (We used organic lamb from Laverstoke Park)
1/2 Onion
2 Carrots
1 parsnip
2 Large Potatos
2 tins of Plum tomatoes (although any tinned tomatoes would be ok!)

This is an easy recipe which Boo helped to cook, we used our Home Cooker, but it would work just as well in a casserole or even a slow-cooker.

The method is really easy, chop and fry the onions until they are lightly browned, peel and cut all of the vegetables into slices (thin slices are important so that the potatoes cook!) while you are waiting. Once the onion is browned, add the lamb pieces and brown them off lightly. Once browned, add the potatoes and the rest of the vegetables on top, then add the tinned tomatoes and lastly the Paste Pot, then give it all a good stir. If you are cooking it in a home cooker once all the food was in it cooked for 45mins at 130c, but you need to check that your potatoes are well enough cooked before serving! If it is going in a casserole, 1hr would be perfect in the oven. Once it is ready, serve to hungry family, this recipe served two adults and two children.

I’m sorry our photo doesn’t do this recipe justice, as it is super tasty and very easy dish! We didn’t need to season at all which was amazing, the paste pot really worked well and it was lovely that we could all eat the same tasty meal!

Check back to read what we think of our next taste test, we’re going to try one of the curry paste pots next and I’m quite excited to see what the boys think of it!
