Tomato Soup

My kids L O V E tomato soup. They had a tin of it somewhere and fell in love, which is good, but really, I do question what sort of nutritional value is in those tins. So I set about creating my own version. This has been in development for a while and now perfected. In fact, I’ve got two versions, equally delicious and simple, one with more goodies than the other and both worth a go.

Version 1 makes a soup very similar in flavor and texture to that from the tin but does not have as much goodness as version 2.

Version 2 uses natural sweetness of additional vegetables which means you add no sugar, and also includes the superfood Quinoa instead of potato to thicken it. The cream is optional but is delicious and I think necessary for the little ones as it softens the tomato.

Suitable from about 3rd month of eating

Dublin Coddle

Mushroom Soup

Suitable from about 3rd month of eating.

Sticky Chicken With Barley

I created this take on honey soy chicken wings as a way to make them a more nutritious meal. Don’t worry about a bit of visible green as kids need to learn that veg are a delicious part of healthy balanced diet (see blog post on hidden vegies) plus the sauce is so tasty they won't even notice it.

**Note due to honey, this is not suitable for babies under 12 months. You can substitute with Agave Nectar or Real Maple Syrup.

Broccoli Soup With Extra Oomph

Perfect for freezing or enjoying as a family.

Pasta Cakes

You will fall in love with the ease and deliciousness of these pasta cakes. Great for little fingers and lunch boxes and terrific for using up left over pasta.

I typically use Spaghetti Bolognaise, Carbonara or Tuna Pasta but just about anything works well.

Quesadilla

Quesadillas are like Mexican toasted sandwiches and make a great meal or snack. Cut up into small pieces and served with a dip, they are a tasty finger food option. I like to use the Multigrain Tortilla’s, always hunting for a little extra goodness, but you can use white or corn as well.
