mini quiches

These friendly little chaps are great for toddlers.

And they’re great for the provider of food, because they are easy, nutritious (although they admittedly contain unhealthy pastry… but you have to have some vices) and you can throw random ingredients in no worries. Plus, they can be shared. My tiny human loves to eat the same dish as his captors.


Ingredients:

– one sheet of puff pastry (the shit you buy in the freezer section of the supermarket)

– two eggs, lightly beaten

– one to two tablespoons of grated cheese (depending on how you enjoy the cheese factor)

– grated vegetables (eg. carrots, onions, pumpkin, sweet potato, eggplant) or small cuties like peas and corn

– if you’re feeling generous, cut up some cooked meat like lamb, chicken, salmon, bacon…


The process:

– preheat the oven to 180 and grease a mini tart/muffin tin with butter or olive oil

– when the pastry is soft, cut it into 16 squares and line the bottom of each little hole (your tin will probably only accommodate 12 squares)

– mix up the egg, cheese and whatever ingredients you chose and spoon into each pastry square

– cook for 10-13 minutes, so they’re golden and lovely

– share with humans, large and small

P.S This is a photo of the weird little tin I use – I don’t know what it’s called.

smooshed avocado on toast with trout

Image

Well. Maybe you’re a toddler, maybe you’re not.

Either way, this breakfast does things.

Serves one human.


 Ingredients:

– quarter of an avocado, smooshed

– one piece of good quality wholemeal bread, toasted

– half to one fillet of smoked rainbow trout

– a squeeze of lemon

– salt and pepper if you are a grown human or discerning tot


 How to make it happen:

It’s obvious.

However, if this is for a toddler, please carefully check the fillet of trout for bones, small and large, and get them the hell out of there. And cut the toast into pieces fit for tiny hands.


 Enjoy, Shannon x
