Cheesy baked beans and vegies

This recipe is easy to prepare, healthy and delicious.

1 can of baked beans
1/2 cup of grated cheese
300g pumpkin
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup brocolli peices

Boil pumpkin celery and brocolli until just soft and drain liquid. Add baked beans and cheese and mash to the consistancy that your baby prefers. Reheat then allow to cool to an appropriate tenperature for your baby.

This will make more than enough for one meal, so put the rest in containers or ice cube trays in the freezer for easy meals in the future.

Try adding other vegies, such as carrot, zucchini, green beans or sweet corn, to make it interesting and even more nutritious.

Sam Qld,


My 4 year old loves to help cook and eat.
Great for parties

2 Sheets of puff pastry
Tomato paste
oregano (paste is better but can use herbs)
100g salami
1 cup of chees
milk to glaze

pre heat oven 200c.
with a pastry brush or knife spread over puff pastry with tomato paste and oregano. sprinkle puff pastry with salami and cheese. Roll up like to form a log.
Glaze roll with milk and cut in 2 cm slices and lay slices flat on baking tray. Cook for 10, 15 min or till puffed and golden.

Sam Qld,

Serves 4

1 pound thick-sliced bacon diced
2 tablespoons Salt
1 pound Linguini
3 Eggs
1/3 cup Chopped Italian parsley
Grated Parmesan cheese
Fresh ground pepper to taste

1. Saute the bacon in a small skillet until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on a paper towel.
2. Boil the water and cook linguini until firm and tender.
3. Meanwhile, beat the eggs thoroughly in a large bowl suitable for serving. Have the cooked bacon and the chopped parsley ready at hand.
4. When the pasta is done, drain it immediately in a colander, and pour into the bowl of eggs and immediately begin tossing it. As the strands of pasta become coated with the beaten eggs, their heat will cook the eggs.
5. Sprinkle the bacon and parsley on, and serve immediately. This is great with lots of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper

Vege Macaroni.

1 carrot, diced
1 stalk of celery, diced
2 tomatoes, peeled and diced
1 1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup macaroni

In a saucepan heat a small amount of oil, add carrot, celery and tomatoes and sautee for a few minutes. Add 1/2 cup of water and let simmer until carrot is becoming soft. Add macaroni and remaining water. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer until macaroni is cooked. Add more water if needed. Keep leftovers in the fridge (makes enough for 2-3 feeds depending on how much your child is eating). To serve sprinkle with a little cheese or mix with ricotta.

Also makes a great pasta bake! Place mixture into a suitable dish, sprinkle with cheese and place under the grill.


Chicken and Veg Mix

Tonight I tried something while making our own tea. My 22 month daughter likes anything that has a tomato flavour to it, seems I can just about add sauce to anything and she will eat it! (should try brussel sprouts lol) Anyway, made this and she gobbled it right up!

1 Chicken breast fillet - small
1 potato
1 small carrot
1 stick celery
1 piece of sweet potato (about the size of a small potato)
1 piece pumpkin, butternut (same as above)
1 teaspoon chicken stock powser
2 teaspoons tomato paste

Dice chicken breast very finely, pop into a pot, add water and let simmer on stove. (when putting in water make it enough so it will just cover the vegies when put in)Chop all vegies to tiny little cubes. Skim off any 'fluff' from the top of the chicken broth. Add vegies and stock. Allow to boil till very soft and water is almost gone. Add tom paste, mix in well. keep on heat till most of the water has evaporated and mix is quite thick.
When you mix in the paste the vegies will break up a bit, making it a bit thicker.
You could add some pasta shapes if you wanted to extend the meal a bit.
