Speedy Kids’ Recipe
I love the idea of fritters for many occasions – breakfast, lunch or as a snack out and about. They aren’t as messy as a lot of other Baby Led Weaning Foods and are SUPER easy to make. These are also perfect as a savoury breakfast or savoury finger food options for little ones as well, which sometimes can be a little harder to come by.
Honestly, the brilliance of these fritters is the ease and speed with which they are made. Pop everything in a blender and they fry like a pancake! It takes just a few minutes. You can also make them smooth (like in a nutri-blender) or leave them a little chunky from the food processor. It really depends what works best for your baby/toddler.
Also, don’t be afraid to vary the veggies used in this. I went for spinach and carrot as I had them both in the fridge. The spinach makes it nice and green, but you can easily switch the carrot out for onion, courgette, tomato – you name it!
I hope you enjoy it – tag me on social media if you make this #SRNutritionrecipes!
Spinach Fritter Recipe
Makes around 6 fritters – can be frozen
- 1 large handful of spinach
- 1 medium carrot grated
- egg x 1
- 1 clove garlic
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 50g of plain flour (you may need more if it’s too liquid-y)
- 50mls of milk of choice
- Pinch of spices – turmeric, cumin, curry powder, whatever you have at home.
- Add everything to a blender and blend until smooth
- If it’s a little thin add some more flour (up to around 50g more); if it’s a little thick add a little splash more milk
- Heat oil in a frying pan and add a few dollops of the batter to the pan. Leave it to brown on one side for around 2 minutes before flipping it. Repeat a few times until all the batter is used up.
Serve to your baby with hummus dip or with some peanut butter spread on top or just as it is.
