Hulk pasta (broccoli sauce)

image

Super green broccoli pasta! 😊

I love this, the sauce is fluorescent green and super good for you and easy to make to for a quick supper!  I added some pan fried cashews for some extra good fats for the kids!

broccoli head

almond milk

1/4 cup Nutritional yeast (tastes like cheese and high in b12 and other goodness)

salt and pepper

cashews

so…you boil the broccoli but don’t over cook it, you want it with a bit of bite as its getting blended anyway, so you don’t want to cook all the nutrition out of the stuff!  So once boiled add to a blender with the nutritional yeast, season with salt and pepper and add enough almond milk to blend into a creamy sauce.  Then cook your pasta and add the sauce to the pasta.  Add some pan fried cashews if you desire!  Great for kids who hate the site of veggies. 😊


Cabbage and tattie soup

Kid friendly cabbage and tattie soup!

This was super yum with the addition of a couple of handfuls of broth mix and the quinoa at the end really thickened the soup and added a protein boost!  My son wanted to be in the picture I was taking for my blog ha ha he is so cute!  ❤️

Half a cabbage (fresh from my garden)

1 potato

to handfuls of broth mix (barley, split peas, rice, yellow lentils etc.)

two handfuls of quinoa

two small stock cubes (you could add whatever stock cubes you wish)

salt and pepper

Chop the cabbage and potato and season and cook for a few minutes in a splash of olive oil in the soup pan, add the desired water and stock cubes and the handfuls of broth mix…leave to simmer through until cooked through then add the two handfuls of quinoa and continue simmer until quinoa is cooked.  Purée if blender if desired!  My kids like it smooth so they can’t see and complain about the vegetables. 😊
