Braised green peas with carrots

This recipe looks so simple, but we found it just this year. And it’s already in top of our favourite recipes. Maybe for someone there’s nothing new, but me and my hubby didn’t eat this dish in our childhood, so it’s new for us. Now when we need quick dinner or supper, we braise all frozen vegetables the same way, and always it comes out really very very delicious.

Pasta salad with grean peas and tomatoes

Very simple recipe. Parents like it because it’s really quick and kids like it because it’s delicious. Almost everyday I find myself thinking about how to encourage my kids to eat more veggies. These salads are one step closer to my wish. My kids didn’t even noticed chopped chives 🙂 I repeated this recipe several times and both times kids said the same – it’s really good!

Smoked chicken breast and broccoli salads

When my mother on the weekend told me about the salads that she tasted at work, I was sceptical. And when she decided to prepare it for us, I was afraid (our taste is very different). But I’m glad that she did it, because we liked it a lot. It’s better to say that grown ups liked it, because my kids didn’t like onion and broccoli. Mayonnaise doesn’t make these salads healthy but for a quick dinner they were very good.

Kids rice soup with green peas

My kids are tired of eating salads 🙂 so I decided to prepare them soup – simple, only with a few ingredients as kids like this. Also I had some fresh peas in a fridge, and for more satiety I added small turkey meatballs, but they are really optional.

Carrot and cottage cheese bake

Spring is here – calendar tells it, but outside is still cold. Anyway, my eyes automatically turns to warm colours. Carrots are full of warm orange colour and they are perfect for us today. In this bake, I used oat bran and it gave the bake a little bit grey colour. So if you want to make colour of the bake brighter – use semolina.
