Anyone interested in sharing some more children/baby friendly recipes? I have a few below-
Boil 4 potatoes until soft, mash with a little butter and milk and set aside. Place a piece of salmon/cod/Sole in a pan and cover with milk and 1 bay leaf, leave to simmer for 10 minutes, drain saving the milk for later. Flake the fish with a fork and set aside. Boil a cup of broccoli for 5 minutes, drain and add to the fish. In a separate pan make a white sauce using 1 tablespoon of butter and 1.5 tablespoons of flour, stir adding milk until you reach the right consistency. Add in 2 balls of frozen spinach and simmer for 2 minutes before adding the fish and broccoli. Place in small ramekin dishes and top with the mashed potato and a handful of grated cheese. Cook for 15-20 minutes at 180 degrees or until bubbling
For super quick option. Mash as above (can use sweet potato too). fry onions and garlic then add the fish and mix with cream cheese once cooked through. We serve with a side of veggies.
Salmon in a creamy cheese sauce:
Bake a piece of salmon in the oven wrapped in foil for 15 minutes at 180 degrees. In a small pan make a white sauce adding in half a cup of gruyere cheese and half a cup of cheddar cheese, stir until melted. Pour over the salmon and put under a hot grill for 5 minutes. Serve with cous cous or brown rice
Homemade fish goujons:
Cut 2 white fish fillets into finger size pieces and set aside. Using three bowls, add half a cup of flour to one, 1 beaten egg to the second and 1 cup of whole meal breadcrumbs in the third. Place each piece of fish in firstly the flour, then egg and finally breadcrumbs. Lay on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes in the oven at 180 degrees. For older children you can crush a packet of crisps and add to the breadcrumbs giving a crunchy texture!
Chop up a salmon fillet into small bite size pieces. Roll out a pack of ready-made puff pastry and cut into small squares. Place the salmon in the middle and neatly fold up, using 1 beaten egg to stick. Brush the rest of the egg over the bites and cook in the oven for 10-15 minutes at 180 degrees or until brown
Bake a piece of fish (any kind works) for 10-15 minutes in foil at 180 degrees. In a saucepan melt 1 tablespoon of butter, add half a very finely chopped onion and fry until soft. Add 1 teaspoon of mild curry powder and mix. Add half a cup of brown rice, some frozen peas, sweet corn and cover with water. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often. In a separate pan boil 2 eggs for 4 minutes, plunge into cold water and take off the shell. Chop up the egg into bite size pieces and once your rice is soft and the water has been absorbed, add to the mix and serve
Tuna pasta bake:
Boil the pasta until almost cooked through, drain and set aside. In a saucepan melt 1 tablespoon of butter and half a red onion until soft. Add 1 tablespoon of flour and mix. Slowly add some milk stirring continuously until you have a nice thick sauce. Add in 1 tin of tuna and 1 tin of drained and washed sweet corn and stir. Mix together with the pasta and place in an oven dish, top with grated cheddar cheese and bake for 10 minutes until brown
Bolognaise with a lot of veg and whole wheat spaghetti:
In a large saucepan fry a 500g pack of beef mince until browned. Drain any fat away and add 1 finely chopped red onion and 2 finely chopped cloves of garlic until soft. Add half a finely chopped red pepper, 1 finely grated courgette, 4 finely chopped mushrooms, 1 finely chopped carrot and fry until soft. Add 1 tin
