Baby Bowl – Buckwheat Noodles, Spinach & Tomato Sauce

Here is another of my ‘Baby Bowls’ that are super fast and easy. I made these for my little mans lunch today. We went into Central London to get some lunch at the food stalls at the Southbank – I had an amazing chicken and halloumi souvlaki wrap – and as it was super busy we just perched on a wall and ate our lunch. My little man got himself covered in the noodles and tomato sauce, and he was getting a lot of smiles from passers-by. I truly believe that you can transport pretty much any food for the babies’ lunch anywhere, and there is no need for expensive, sugary pouches, unless you want to use them of course.

These noodles are super yummy, and its great fun watching babies eat spaghetti! Sucking up those long strands of pasta – just hilarious.

I also added spinach in here. It’s the first time my son has really liked spinach, and I hadn’t done anything with it. Just washed and chopped. The tomato sauce is enough to make a large pot of tomato sauce, and to freeze in portions for later.

I hope you enjoy this recipe.
