It’s fair to say we have done a lot of baking during 2020…it’s a go to option for a rainy day and we had a weekly baking session during lockdown.
I wanted to find some things that we could cook together that weren’t necesarily baking but cooking an actual meal!
You might have seen on my instagram stories that I’ve been trying out some fabulous Little Seed Oils recently. I’m a big fan of them and was delighted to find that they have some brilliant printable recipes for kids, designed to keep the kids engaged with a bit of help from me!
I know for sure that we are going to be trying the Quick & Easy Pizza Dough as it does look just that…quick and easy! Plus my mini mumblers love pizza and I’ve never dared make my own dough before! We’ll definitely be using their Pizza Drizzle Oil too! Keep an eye on our Instagram @DoncasterMumbler to see how we get on!
Little Seed also have some good advice for getting veggies in to kids!
Here are their top tips:
Chop it small! Grating or blitzing raw veg in a food processor rather than chopping it can make it even easier to hide in sauces, soups and stews!
Blend it up! What they can’t see won’t hurt them, so hide the evidence
Make it fun! Get the kids involved using some of the above recipes.
Dip it! Some kids turn their noses up at cooked veg, but love the crunch of raw carrot sticks, celery and cucumber. Prepare some tasty veggie dips to go with it such as pumpkin houmous or beetroot and butterbean dip.
Bake with it! There are so many great baking recipes using fresh fruit but even veg can be used to make tasty treats – carrot cake or grated courgette in savoury muffins or scones
Oh…and if you do want to bake, check out this recipe for Easy Mince Pies using their oils. It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
