I have made no secret of the fact I have used Annabel Karmel’s baby cookbook to prepare Snoops baby meals.
I have since taken a few dishes that I love and made them Snoop friendly
Here are his favourite………..
Sweet Potato and Tuna Mash
This is really easy and quick.
Just boil a potato and open a tin of tuna. I mix a tablespoon of tuna in with the potato and add a teaspoon of creme fresh. Finally I finely chop some chives or dill depending what I have in the fridge and mix, then serve.
I haven’t tried freezing this and don’t think I would. It’s a great dish you can eat along side your baby, so why freeze the excess?
Babies are great copiers so if you find they are refusing food after being a good eater try joining them at meal times.
Baby Keralan Curry
Ok so a real Karalen curry has chilli powder and green chilli’s in, that would be a bit too much just yet so I just didn’t add them.
Curry leaves, ginger, mustard seeds, onions, chicken, coconut milk, chopped tomatoes.
First add the curry leaves and mustard leaves to a pan. When the seeds pop add the onions, garlic and ginger.
After 2-3 minutes I add the chicken and let that brown and part cook before adding the chopped tomatoes and a few tablespoons of coconut milk (if your baby likes a lot of sauce then add a few more tbs)
I finish cooking this for another 12-15 minutes till the chicken is cooked through and then blitz till the chunks are baby sized.
This can be frozen. I mashed this with some white potato but would use cous cous or rice.
If you want to make this a bit more grown up add a green chili with the ginger, onion and garlic. After the chicken has cooked for 6-8 minutes mix up a paste of turmeric and chilli powder (1tsp turmeric 1tbp chilli). You add this to the pan before the tomatoes and coconut milk. You prob want to use half a can or more)
This recipe I took from a friend Tom Henry at Crossfit London. I follow paleo 80-20 but with Snoop I think its important he tries different things so he has had bread ect. I do try to limit it though and try to give him the best quality foods I can find.
He woofed these down in minutes, Thanks Tom.
Take a large banana and mash.
Add a teaspoon of almond butter and mix.
Beat an egg in a cup and add to the batter.
Then I use a drop of coconut oil in a non-stick pan and lightly fry. Simple
I have tried these myself, I can vouch for Snoop they are delicious.
