فوركس frr Not the easiest cooking session, with a toddler in the kitchen who was less intent on helping and more intent on making as much mess as he possibly could with water from the sink! At least this is a very simple dish, a lovely way of tenderising meat and a favourite in this house since I first made it when Archie was around 9 months old (in the early days we tended to use leg and thigh instead of chicken breast as Archie used to prefer the texture). It is not a classic dry grilled chicken satay. The coconut milk, which is added to the marinade and to the pan, ensures that the chicken is extremely moist and tender and the delicate “citrus” spicing makes for a fragrant and extremely moreish dish. You needn’t be too precise on the ingredients for the marinade and it will not be too adversely affected if you do not have them all or if you improvise slightly… I served this with plain jasmine rice (cooked as per the “Indonesian Salmon” video) and simple steamed brocoli. Tender-sweet chicken satay Preparation time 5 minutes (plus however long you want to leave the meat marinade – that can be anything from 5 minutes to overnight!), cooking time 15 minutes. This amply served 3 of us. For the marinade: 2 tbsp peanut butter (I use the sugar-free one from Whole Earth). 150ml coconut milk 1 tbsp soy sauce 1 tbsp Thai fish sauce A couple of good squirts of honey 1 tsp ground coriander 1 tsp turmeric 2 garlic cloves (crushed) A 1.5cm cube of ginger, chopped...

But the point of this video is not to turn out a big yellow splodge which can vaguely pass as an omelette (this is what most of the omelettes on that programme turn into, in the pursuit of speed). What I wanted to show here was that, even with a toddler in the kitchen, you can make a tasty and nutritious lunch in under 5 minutes, from the moment you open the fridge to the moment it is served on a plate. The final time was actually well under 5 minutes as you will see in the video… In fact, cooking this omelette took even less time than putting a piece of toast on – proof that you can cook ultra-quick, tasty and very baby/toddler friendly lunches, even when you have no time at all and barely one egg left in the house! Cheese and tomato omelette Total preparation and cooking time, under 5 minutes. Serves one hungry toddler 1 free range egg A dash of milk Some cheddar (Archie likes extra-mature) A small cube of butter 3 cherry tomatoes You will also need a 6-7 inch frying pan Heat the frying pan very hot. The hotter the better. Don’t be afraid of how hot it goes!! Drop the butter in the pan and let it melt and froth (try not...

follow This gently spiced chow mein is yet another extremely quick and tasty meal to prepare. If I am well organised, it can be prepared in under 10 minutes, from start to finish, including cooking the noodles.  Chinese and Asian food has always been a big hit with Archie. The interesting flavours are never overpowering and noodles dishes in particular give him the opporunity to make a big mess and use his chopsticks! One of the interesting upshots of the “baby led weaning” approach which we adopted was how much Archie tried to emulate how we eat. I think he first insisted on picking up a chopstick when he was 9 or 10 months old as to him it seemed entirely logical that if we were using them, he should use them too. He is hardly proficient but it all adds to the fun and play element that we have always to considered an important part of eating together. This fun and play element (together with a high mess threshold in the early days) has definitely contributed, in my opinion, to the healthy relationship Archie has around food and eating… Quick stir-fried beef chow mein Preparation time 5 minutes, cooking time 10 minutes maximum. This served three of us with some seconds too. Add an extra 60g of noodles for a fourth person. If you are vegetarian, the dish works perfectly without the beef. 250g tender beef (I used rib-eye) 300g fine noodles 150g sliced chestnut mushrooms 150g asparagus, cut into 2cm long pieces 2 Pak Choi, coarsely chopped 2 crushed cloves of garlic A 1.5cm cube of fresh ginger, finely...

click here A shorter video for a very quick and simple dish. Crayfish tails are a cheap and tasty way of serving shellfish. 250g only cost me £2 at my fishmonger and would not cost more than £2.50 at a supermarket. The dill gives the sauce a fragrant sweetness, making this dish a long-standing favourite in our house. When Archie was still dairy allergic, we used to make it with Alpro Soya cream which was an excellent substitute. That said, nothing quite beats the bitter tangyness of the crème fraiche… There is some debate as to when to give shellfish to babies and children. I believe we started when Archie was around nine months old and this felt a good time to start (although admittedly some people do prefer to wait until 12 months old). If my memory serves me right, we were in our local Chinese restaurant and he was just too curious about the little baby shrimps in the special fried rice. The restaurant kindly brought him a plate of them and he literally hoovered them up, instantly turning shellfish into a regular part of our eating habits. I would imagine that most shellfish could substitute the crayfish here and, if you are concerned about giving shellfish, I am sure this recipe would work well with some cubed fresh salmon. Linguine with a crayfish, dill, cream and tomato sauce Preparation time 5 minutes, cooking time 15 minutes This served three of us, with second helpings for the adults 350g linguine 250g fresh crayfish tails 1 onion, chopped 2 cloves of garlic, crushed 300ml of crème fraiche (I used the...

الخيارات الثنائية الإختراق تحميل Archie missed the opening steps of this recipe as he was out on a date (!) in the afternoon, but he soon came home to help and discreetly wreak his trademark havoc. This is a truly lovely dish. I cook the lamb for three hours, sealed in a baking dish, almost steaming in its own juices. The result is meat which is beyond tender and virtually melting. I use lamb shanks as they are a cheap and very flavoursome cut at my butchers. Don’t be put off by the long cooking time, this is a wonderfully easy recipe to prepare and cook. Once the lamb is in the oven, you only need to check it a couple of times and it always looks impressive when it is cooked. As the lamb is so soft, we have been serving this for Archie since very early on, probably around 7 or 8 months. He has always enjoyed cumin as a spice and its gentle warmth is particularly welcome on these cold winter evenings. Slow-cooked lamb shank, mashed potatoes and green beans Preparation time 10 minutes, cooking time 3 hours. This served 3 of us but could easily serve 4. 2 good size lamb shanks 3 cloves of garlic 1tbsp of cumin seeds (if you do not have a pestle and mortar, you can use powdered cumin). A pinch of smoked paprika A pinch of turmeric 1 tsp of rock salt (optional) 1 tbsp of olive oil 3 large potatoes 250g green beans Pre-heat the oven to 160°C/320°F Crush together the spices, the garlic and the salt.
