I love baked beans. Often, if I just want something simple for dinner I’ll whip myself up some baked beans and avocado on toast.
Canned baked beans are great, but they generally contain quite a bit of added sugar and salt. This homemade version is so simple, is added sugar and salt free and tastes absolutely amazing. You can keep any leftovers in the fridge or even the freezer.
Knowing how to make good, fresh chicken stock is such an asset. Using high quality chicken stock, preferably homemade, can really change the flavour of a dish and make it taste sooo much better.
Plus making your own stock also means you know EXACTLY what’s gone into it and it won’t be overloaded with salt like many ready-to-go stock cubes.
This is a super simple way to make your own chicken stock. I use it as a base for loads of things but I particularly like using it in my kid-friendly chicken and mushroom risotto.
Introducing a variety of spices to your children’s diet from an early age goes a long way to avoiding having fussy eaters later on.
Babies all around the world are dining on herbs and spices from a young age, however in western society it seems most babies get stuck with boring tasteless mush.
Curries are a great way to pack in lots of vegetables, nutrients and flavour into a relatively simple dish. Curry is a perfect food when your child is new to solids because it often can be pureed down very easily.
This curry is super mild so perfect for beginners and those who don’t like things too spicy. It is also loaded with goodness from pumpkin, cauliflower, lentils, chickpeas and fish.
Fritatta is one of my favourite easy dinner recipes. It can be on the table in less than 20 minutes and is absolutely delicious with a big side salad.
It also makes for a perfect breakfast and lunch option too.
A lot of people often ask me if I don’t eat eggs or if eggs are bad for you because many of my recipes are egg-free. The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT!
Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods in the world. They are a high quality protein and a great food to feed kids because the protein helps to support their growth. Eggs also contain folate, vitamin A, iron, zinc, iodine and omega-3s.
I know it might seem like a weird combination but this sushi is a real hit in our household. It’s a great lunchtime or snack option.
Sushi is a perfect first finger food and an easy way to fill little tummies. This version is made without seaweed and you can add other fruit (or savoury) combinations to suit your tastes.
Sushi also isn’t that hard to make, so don’t be scared off! It can be made and on the table within 30 minutes and that includes the cooking of the rice.
