It’s been a very long time and I do apologize for not writing for such a loooong period of time….but we are back and we have some exciting news and very interesting new projects.
Mummy’s been very busy with work and Little Miss Sunshine’s been very busy with growing up…and learning so many new things, so fast! She can count, she can sing, she recognizes her favorie music videos, and we recently learned to jump. Yesterday she turned 17 months and Oh My, we still wonder where the time flew?!?!
We cannot wait for Spring, to be honest I kind of had enough of this cold winter. Besides, Hessy has many S/S outfits that need to go out of the closet…and they need to be worn fast… size 12-18months is turning dangerously slim fit.
As we passed the puree period, struggles with the finger food and crunchy, munchie recipes appeared. Because I am a sucker for everything that’s called, or thought to be healthy, I tried a variety of recipes for toddlers.
So, for today’s lunch we tried a really great half invented- half taken from a book recipe.
Red Lentil, Sweet potato & Apple quick stew.
You will need:
– Soybean Oil (chiefly a poly-unsaturated fats rich vegetable oil. Linoleic acid (omega-6) is the major poly-unsaturated fatty acid found in it. Additionally it is low in saturated fats, and free from cholesterol; making it as one of the healthiest cooking oils.
– 1 apple, 1 small size sweet potato, 1 small cup of red lentils
– 1 garlic glove
–1 teaspoon of grated fresh ginger
– Seasoning & Spices ( I used: pink himalayan salt, cardamon, cinnamon, basil,
Leave the cup of lentils to soak in cold water, for 20-30 minutes
Chop the sweet potato and the apple in small cubes. In a cooking pot add a little ( 1 tablespoon) of soybean oil and heat it. Chop the garlic clove in small bits and add it to the oil for aproximately 1-2 minutes at low to medium heat. Add the chopped ingredients in the pot over the garlic and drain the lentils from the water they’ve been soaked. Over the ingredients, add 300 ml water into the pot. Add the lentils, the grated ginger and the spices you want. Leave it to boil on medium heat for aproximately 15 minutes ( until the lentils are cooked).
Enjoy and let the Toddlers get messy. 🙂
