Quinoa & Mince Rissoles


Sizzling homemade rissoles hot from the frying pan! The kids love them! They also love watching the video at the end of this blog because they helped make these mince/pork rissoles. They also tried to stick their hands in front of the lens so their hands could be famous.

However, my Mum’s rissoles had the kids not realising how deliciously nutritious they were. This rissoles’ recipe is easy for lunch or dinner, especially as this quantity can be  frozen for handy future meals. There is a trick to freezing them that ensures the meal packs stack well in the freezer.

How to Freeze

Freeze rissoles on trays so they are frozen to hard, to handle easily. When frozen, layer flat or loosely packed to suit your meal sizes. Take out frozen rissole pack night before and put in fridge ready for your lunch or dinner.
