This is a super fast family meal, that just needs the smallest tweak to make it really tasty for both adults and babies.
The other night I made a lovely butternut squash hash, and saved a quarter of the roasted squash over for another meal. This dish was super cheap, delicious, and I was able to make a small amount of ingredients go a very long way. I usually cook my own rice, but time was pressed and I always make sure that I have a pack of plain microwave rice in the cupboard for such occasions. As it’s just plain rice that I’m after, I buy the cheapest ones (about 50p depending on where you buy them) and make the additions myself.
My little one is able to manage the texture of this dish, and he loves me serving him with chopsticks, so it’s exciting for him, but if you want to do more baby-led and your baby is struggling to pick up the rice, you could add a little water and roll them into balls. Also, if the peas are large ensure that they are crushed before serving to little ones.
