Toddler Recipe: Pasta

This is one of K’s favorite dish. She does not eat much anyway but this is something that at least makes her sit in high chair for a while 🙂

This is my vegetarian version because there are certain days when I feel that we should all eat meat-less stuff.

Ingredients:

  1. Pasta (Any kind that you think your toddler can handle)
  2. Half medium sized onion, chopped finely
  3. One medium sized tomato, chopped finely
  4. 2 mushrooms, chopped
  5. One medium sized potato, boiled, chopped finely
  6. Half carrot, boiled, chopped finely
  7. Half pepper (red/green), chopped
  8. 1 tsp olive oil
  9. 1 tbsp butter
  10. Salt, as per taste
  11. Black pepper, pinch
  12. 1 tsp, Soy Sauce

Additional Ingredients if you wish to add chicken. I often add these but I made the vegetarian version today so did not add chicken.

  1. Chicken Breast, cut into size that your toddler can handle easily
  2. 1 tbsp cornflour
  3. 1 tsp Soy Sauce
  4. Salt, as per taste
  5. 1 tsp, vinegar
  6. 1 tbsp butter

Instructions:

  1. Make pasta as per packet instructions. When cooked, drain excess water and add olive oil. Stir well so that pasta does not stick. Keep aside.
  2. In a pan, melt butter. Add onions. Stir fry on medium heat till it turns transparent. Add tomatoes and stir again. Let it turn mushy.
  3. Add all the vegetables, soy sauce, salt and black pepper. Keep stirring.
  4. If using chicken: In a bowl, add corn flour, soy sauce and vinegar to the chicken. Mix well and keep aside for at least 30 min. Then in a pan, melt butter and chicken to it. Stir fry it till it is done well and turned a little brown. Once done, add to the vegetables prepared in step 2 and 3.
  5. Just before serving, mix the vegetables and pasta.

P.S.: If you want, you can put the mixture (vegetables and pasta) in a baking dish, sprinkle cheese all over and bake till the cheese melts and turns a little brown.
