It’s usually quiet in my house during the late afternoon. The telly’s on (Peppa pig, of course!) and in these colder months the blanket nests are beginning to take shape on our sofa. Around 4/5pm that’s when the peace all goes downhill. Delilah is shouting, “Dinner!”. So what do we give them?
In the winter there is nothing better than a thick warm soup and chunky bread to warm you up. Soups are excellent to spoon into a babies mouth and toddlers can easily spoon into their mouths, with a little side of bread to practise their pincher hand motion to dip bread into the soup!
Our family favourite is roasted red pepper, a lovely little recipe I got from a friend. It makes enough for two adults and two toddler helpings!
You will need:
- 2 red peppers
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 2 medium sized carrots
- a little seasoning
- a little oil
- a blender
- roasting tin
- For families who enjoy a little kick or flavour add half an onion or some chilli!
Preheat your oven then peel and cut your sweet potatoes, pepper and carrots
Put into the roasting tin and drizzle with oil and sprinkle a little seasoning
Roast for half an hour!
Serve or store in jars in the fridge for 3 days or a month in the freezer. This dish is very safe to microwave but don’t reheat it after you’ve already heated it up again once.
