I like to think my girls are perfect and would eat anything, but in reality they don’t. Just like me, they have their likes and dislikes, and why shouldn’t they? But I am pleased to say that they are not what I would call fussy eaters (well our youngest daughter at the age of 2 is of course challenging this) but the one rule in our house is that if they try it, and don’t like it, that is fine. The majority of times they do end up liking it and wanting more.
I found this recipe in a Sainsbury’s magazine and it was an instant hit with all of them. I have adapted it slightly and basically use it as an opportunity to throw almost any vegetable in, a great way to give variety of colourful veg to the girls and use whatever needs to be eaten in the fridge.
1tbs olive oil
2 garlic clove
1tsp tumeric, cumin, mixed spice
200 ml coconut milk
100 ml low salt chicken or vegetable stock
optional: 4/6 chicken (breast or thighs)
vegetable mix of: carrots, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, baby corn, green beans, broccoli (basically whatever you like)
served with rice or noodles.
fry onion in oil until soft, add chicken and root veg fry for further 5 minutes, add garlic and spices fry for further 2 minutes.
Add coconut milk and stock and simmer for 15 minutes then add rest of veg. simmer for further 10 minutes check chicken and veg cooked and serve. Delicious and a quiet house for at least 10 minutes! Perfect!
