Lunch. Who has time for that?? Between emails, laundry & ferrying the kids to their next appointment (Swimming! Play dates! Doctor! Birthdays!) I’m lucky if I inhale an apple & neck an espresso. Trouble is, I get to 5pm – ravenous – and then wolf enough pasta to support a Tuscan village 😑

 

So this week I’m amping my lunch game with help from Huon Salmon.

 

Ethically harvested in the pristine waters of the Huon River, Tasmania, #huonsalmon is your quick & healthy lunch sorted. Harvested at night, so it’s fresher by day, this omega-3 rich fish is a one-stop-shop of energy, protein and seriously fresh flavour. Grown using sustainable and best practice farming techniques, the brand is the work of Peter and Frances Bender who commenced salmon farming in the ‘80s and continue the Australian-owned, family-run operation today.

 

Best of all: this tasty little lunch bite takes about 3 minutes to whip up and even less to devour (see IG Stories for how!) The edible flowers on top are just me gettin’ my fancy foodie on — optional, but totally not required.

Super Fresh & Easy Family Dinner Ideas with Continental

April 21, 2017

Hipster Mum x Continental | @hipster_mum | www.hipstermum.com

Confession: my two year old is a… tomato monster 🍅😆

Nope, she won’t eat carrot or potato. But those tiny sweet little romas? She. Cannot. Get. Enough.

Because she’s obsessed, our whole family is obsessed too. When we visit my uncle who grows tomatoes, it’s like Easter — everyone hunting around and marvelling when they find a ripe one — only better because we’re devouring food that’s healthy, nutritious and fresh.

Seeing that excitement and delight, I’ve always wished we could connect with tomato growers on our street or block who wanted to share. Enter Continental and Ripe Near Me.

Continental is famous for their incredible flavours and Ripe Near Me is an Australian start-up that connects home cooks with local growers of herbs, fruit and veggies.

Together, they offer a new way to explore, experience and enjoy food in a way that makes you feel good!

For us, that started by exploring the Continental website and finding a recipe that would work for our family. The recipes on the site are fantastic: simple enough for weekday meals, diverse enough to keep things interesting.

As a mum of a fussy 8-year-old and messy 2-year-old, I have some pretty specific things I’m looking for in our dinner these days:

  • Miss 8 is interested in veggie meals (less meat, where possible)
  • Miss 2 wants hold her food and is learning to feed herself
  • Mum wants something that’s healthy, quick and leaves minimal mess

That’s not asking too much is it? 😂

Corn Fritters ticked all the boxes. Even better: right there on the recipe page (bottom right corner) the Ripe Near Me app invited me to pop in my postcode to view the range of fresh fruit, herbs and veggies that are all, well, ripe near me.

After entering my postcode, results popped up immediately, showcasing avocados, lettuce and (yay!) tomatoes all on offer from local growers.

After collecting our fresh ingredients, the recipe was a cinch to whip up. The stock powder was an inspired addition: adding minimal salt (the recipe highlights Continental Chicken Salt Reduced Stock Powder) with maximum flavour.

In good news for my eldest daughter, a little birdie at Continental told me that they’ve just released a new vegetable stock powder (yay!) so soon we’ll be able to make these fritters and they’ll be completely vegetarian – with the extra flavour hit!
