High Protein Toddler Meal Idea • Quinoa Orgran Pasta , 9 vegetable pasta sauce • organic potato wedges

Opeie's just started enjoying Orgran pasta, but since its been hot this summer , i decided to make it with home made 8 veg pasta sauce so he could enjoy the pasta cold ,  with home made wedges . 

I've written down the protein in g per weight as its a good protein dish for growing little ones. 

Firstly : Precook 1/2 cup green or yellow lentils ( 8g protein ) 

In a heavy bottom sauce pan with boiling water add 

• 2 debrained then chopped tomatoes (2.8g protein )
• 1 cubed carrot ( 1g protein ) 
• 1/2 cubed courgette ( 0.7g protein ) 
• 1/2 cup minced spinach de-stalked (1g protein) 
• 1/2 red pepper cubed (0.5g protein) 
• 1/2 cup butternut squash( 0.5g protein)
• 1/4 cup sliced onion  ( .25g protein ) 
• 1 cup aubergine cubed. (1g protein )
• 2 cups broccoli florets ( 8g of protein ) 

In a separate pan with boiling water add 3 cups Orgran Quinoa Pasta . (27g protein ) with a table spoon of apple cider vinegar - this stops it sticking ! 

When the vegetables have finished add 1 cup if almond milk (1g protein )  to the blender and add everything apart from half the tomatoes and broccoli if you're able to separate  them . Blitz in the blender and add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil , 1 tablespoon agave , and 1 tablespoons tomato purée , dried basil & pepper corns if your child likes them . 

Depending on your child's she you'll have to blitz the pasta up too, or chop up , or if your a big kid just eat how you like ! 

Wedges : Opeies favourite treat ! 

Cut 3 organic potatoes 1/2 cm wedge shapes

In a container with a lid add 2 table spoons of liquid coconut oil & season with cracked pepper, paprika or garlic powder depending on your child's taste .( add potatoes and shake them around ) 

 Bake on baking paper on a tray to stop them going too crispy at 190 fan assisted / 210 unfan assisted for around 25-30 mins . Checking regularly to avoid burning as little ones struggle . 

* mr organic ketchup is a lovely little treat , we get it every few months , it's the best ketchup ever !
