Having just returned from our back-packing travels with the kids, I promised you in our last post that I’d work on a Sri Lankan recipe… Well, after a successful attempt at a dish, I’m back to share the recipe with you! These are absolutely my most favourite street-food snack from our travels. Comforting, warm, stodgy, and yet packed with veg and flavour! Continue reading “Sri Lankan vegetable roti”
My husband is very proud of the fact that he is a quarter Indian, and while he has only been to India once, my one-year-old is embracing his roots in his love of Indian spices! These pakoras are another great snack for when you’re out and about, or for lunch, with a yoghurty dip (if you’re prepared for the mess that ensues!). Inspired by my sister-in-law’s recipe, they are proving a firm favourite!
You may have already heard of ‘Buddha’ bowls if you’ve ventured around the plant-based/ hippie/ foodie scene at all. So much delicious freshness in one bowl, and they look so lovely and colourful too. WAAAYY too much faff for feeding a baby and the whole family, right?! Well, I recently realised that it’s pretty much one of our family’s default dinner dishes although it’s often thrown onto a plate or directly onto the baby’s highchair tray. I mean, honestly, who has the time to beautifully arrange food for a baby when you know little fingers are going to pick up and eat a bit but then relocate the rest to the floor/up the wall/ in their hair? (all of these things actually happen here every. single. day).

I collected the leaves in this picture last weekend after we went on a lovely autumn bike ride in Derbyshire with my parents. Peddling through the hills with soft afternoon light and falling leaves while my 1 year old son Joshua snoozed at the back was pretty idyllic! An outdoorsy autumn day definitely put us in the mood for warming seasonal food. We nearly lost our outdoor glow with a tediously long drive back home to London but we were cheered up by a delivery of lovely orange pumpkins!

Quesadillas are such a great lunch option both for little ones and adults and we love making different varieties of these. This is one of our favourite versions at the moment. So simple, yet delicious and healthy. The traditional quesadilla is loaded with cheese and, of course, my 3 year-old was adamant that his HAD to have cheese in it (because he’s 3 years old and 3 year-olds absolutely always know what is best).

Almost as soon as I’d finished taking the shot of these little beauties, a small hand reached out and grabbed one, devouring it before I even had a chance to offer them round. That was my 3 year-old, who completely adores these. It later turned out they are also a big hit with the baby. Well, who doesn’t love a bit of fried potato!? Fortunately these are also packed full of fresh green goodness and the edamame beans add a protein punch, making them a complete mini-meal in themselves.
