Spinach and Kale Soup

Spinach and Kale Soup

This super soup is full of iron so a superb dinner for a growing baby! I've also pushed this recipe to friends who are breastfeeding and pregnant too. My mother-in-law was a little intimidated by the “toxic looking colour” but was surprised how good it tasted! I’ll take that as a win. You can freeze this soup in small cartons to serve at a later date and also mix it with some pasta to use as a pasta sauce. I came across this recipe on Instagram by ‘babyledfeeding.com’ and absolutely love it! I have slightly adapted it – mainly to...

Chicken Goujons

I didn’t make these until Emily came along – and now every time I make them, I think I’m never buying ready-made supermarket chicken goujons again as they are so tasty! Must try and stick to that plan! You can also freeze them uncooked so handy if you want to get organised. Prep time: 30 mins Cooking time: 20 mins   Ingredients 500g chicken breast (or fish fillets) 4 tbsp plain flour 2 eggs, beaten 300g breadcrumbs / about 4 slices of bread olive oil   Method Preheat oven to 190'C Cut uncooked chicken breasts into strips   Toast a piece...

Pumpkin soup

Getting your kids onto soup early is a great idea, because it's so versatile. Warming on a winters' day, it gives you the opportunity to use up any leftover veg and add if you add pulses (e.g. red lentils) or meat it becomes a hearty meal. Yes, it can be messy with children who've only just started to wean but make it thick and give them bread to dip in it and it could become a staple lunchtime meal. I tend to blend all my soups so it doesn't matter too much how finely I chop the veg. If you want a chunky soup,...

Cheese and spinach muffins

  These are a great idea to bake if you have a bag of spinach left over and need to think of more creative ways to use it up! These muffins are fab as you can stick them in the freezer and just get them out one at a time. I like to warm them in the microwave for a few mins and the cheese will go gooey again! Prep time: 20 mins (getting into cases takes 5 mins) Cooking time: 20 mins   Ingredients 300g self-raising flour ½ tsp of mustard powder ½ tsp paprika  75g butter 185g grated...
