Baby Food a la Jamie Oliver
Exciting new times have started when it comes to baby food. My little one doesn’t only have some teeth to chew now, she is also interested in literally everything on our plates. And she gets very annoyed when we don’t allow her to try it straightaway. I am very happy about that because I wasn’t a big fan of buying canned baby food or cooking separate dishes for her anyway. Now that these times are over, I enjoy cooking food for our whole family. With a bit more seasoning to add for the adults, a bit of pureeing here and there, but basically we share the same food.
Last week I made a hot pot a la Jamie Oliver for all of us and the little one ate twice her usual amount of food. Who says that a baby cannot be a gourmet ;-)
Easy Spring Vignole a la Jamie Oliver
For 8 portions (believe me, you will finish them in no time)
4 spring onions
400ml good vegetable stock
1kg frozen peas
1 can of artichokes (drained and halved)
1 small bunch of mint
6 slices prosciutto
Heat up frying pan, add 1 shot of olive oil and sauté spring onions for a few minutes. Add the broth and peas. Stir in artichokes and add a few stalks of mint. Season with salt and pepper. Lay prosciutto slices over the pan like a lid and simmer for 10 minutes. Then remove prosciutto and tear it into small pieces. Put prosciutto pieces back into the stew. Season to taste and add a generous splash of olive oil plus the remaining chopped mint leaves.
Serve with some bread or couscous and puree for the little one if necessary.
Very yummy and very healthy!
