Cooking for MC #babyfood

TP is always putting me to shame by making MC loads of fancy meals with enough quinoa in them to single-handedly keep the Andean economies afloat. I, on the other hand, make a cracking meal with only bread-sticks and Philadelphia cheese.

However, in all seriousness, having a a couple of quick healthy recipes to hand for feeding is a top tip.

So here's a vegan, gluten free, plant based, organic, no sugar, recipe I developed myself below.


Dadonspl's Crushed Pea and Broad Bean Blend

Prep time: 1 minute

Cooking time: 4 minutes

  • Garden Peas
  • Broad beans
  • Take a handful of vegan peas and gluten-free broad beans, both hand-picked from my favourite organic farm in Suffolk (or otherwise from the Asda Smart Price frozen veg section).
  • Gently pour the peas and beans into a pan.
  • Add water that is around 80 degrees (boiling water can bruise the peas).
  • Bring the water to boiling and simmer for 3 minutes (during this time I generally like to debate a "philosopher of the day" with MC - she loves Nietzsche at the moment).
  • Once cooked, drain, and then blend the peas and beans in an over-priced NutriBullet or similar reasonably priced blender of your choice.
  • Serve in small bowl, or simply pour directly into the bottom of your baby's bib.
Optional extras

I loved developing this recipe because you can always add extras such as: mint, cheese, matcha tea powder*, spirulina powder* and/or organic protein powder*.

* these ingredients should only be added if you live close to Shoreditch High Street station.
