Earlier last week, I made Fougasse (another French bread) which I learnt from my baking class last year and will be sharing it in the next post because I said I will be doing more baking this month 🙂
However, I just had to share a different recipe I made for my toddlers which went down so well to my surprise! Now my kids love plantain which I would usually just shallow fry or boil but decided to put it in a healthy porridge just like I would like it. The only major difference here was it had no pepper for that heat but trust me, the taste was goooood
Diced plantains (x2)- reasonably riped
Skinless/ boneless chicken (diced)
Green pepper (small quantity, chopped in small cubes)
Tomato puree (I have used ½ of the small de rica puree)
Red onions (small quantity, chopped)
Spring onions (small quantity, chopped)
Leek (small quantity, chopped)- optional
Courgette (small quantity, chopped)- optional
Clove of garlic (X1)
Seasoning: black pepper, curry powder, ground chicken stock and salt to taste
TIP [You can substitute the vegetables mentioned above with those your kids will enjoy e.g. carrots, green peas, spinach etc]
Season the diced chicken with the seasonings mentioned, then add the chopped garlic, onions and spring onions. Simmer for about 5-7 mins so the chicken becomes slightly tender.
Then add the green pepper, leek and tomato paste. Taste for flavour, adjust as desired and allow to cook for another 5mins. Then add the diced plantains.
Then finally add the courgettes because they cook the quickest
AND YOU ARE DONE!
(simple garnishing with the carrots gave it added colour, the kids just munched on it first lol)
I helped myself too
This was a quick, simple, tasty and healthy recipe for the kids. So try it and share your experience 🙂
