One of our favorite meals…. actually, scrap that, one of my favorite meals, because it’s quick, easy and nutritious, is LCHF bobotie. It literally takes 20 minutes to prepare and an hour cooking time total and it’s yummy! Which makes it the perfect mid week meal! And my kids eat it too, when I go easy on the cayenne pepper!
