G’s weaning journey started with purees and mush, and has expanded ever since. He still enjoys a mushy meal, cottage pie/spag bol etc, just with a few more lumps than there used to be. But he also enjoys a lot of finger food, and is ‘baby leading’ himself to whatever is on our plates!
I’ve been trying to come up with a lot more ideas for his meals lately, and stuff I can make in bulk so there’s always a stash on hand. After a quick Pinterest search I found a few recipes for veggie fritters/pancakes, and used them for inspiration to use what I had in the house, to make these vividly green pancakes.
200g peas (frozen)
150g broccoli (frozen)
1 cup plain flour
¾ teaspoon baking powder
¼ red onion
1 tablespoon lemon juice (I used a bottle)
1 tablespoon rosemary oil (plain oil would be fine too)
I microwave the peas and broccoli until they were defrosted, then literally just chucked it all in the food processor, and blended it all up.
If you would prefer them to be a bit chunkier, blitz half of the peas and broccoli with everything else and then pulse in the rest of them so you have a chunkier texture.
Fry tablespoons of the mixture in a little bit of oil or butter, or like I did on the George Foreman hotplate.
These can be served straightaway whilst still warm, or can be left to cool.
I made a big batch of these to bag up for the freezer, now I just take a few out when needed and microwave for 30 seconds or so.
Do you batch cook foods for your littles? What are their favourites?
