Mince Casserole for toddlers (and anyone else!)

Just a quick post to share - here is Naomi's favourite food at the moment (and I love to make it, because it is so darn easy!)

Crock-pot Mince Casserole

1/2 kg lean beef mince
1 beef stock cube
2 carrots (diced)
1 potato (diced)
frozen corn kernels and frozen peas
crushed garlic
rice (about 3 handfuls)
1 can diced tomatoes

Brown the mince and place in the crock pot with the can of diced tomatoes. Add stock cube and about 1/2 a cup of water, and the diced carrots and potato. Stir in about 1 teaspoon crushed garlic. Simmer for 2 hours. Add the frozen corn kernels and peas, and the herbs of your choice (I use dried mixed herbs). Add several handfuls of rice and continue simmering. Keep an eye on the liquid level - the rice will absorb excess water.

When vegetables and rice are cooked, allow to cool. Serve into individual portions and freeze. I get about 7 meals for Miss 15 Months from this quantity.
