More toddler food …

February 15, 2008 at 8:23 am 2 comments

I have been having a bit of a cooking frenzy tonight, trying to stock up the freezer with toddler snacks (and to be honest, Hubby and I like them too).

So here are the recipes:

Toddler meatballs

 1 small onion, grated (yes – grated!)250g lean minced beef

½ tsp dried thyme or oregano

1 tsp fresh chopped parsley or other herb2 tbsp tomato sauce

Plain flour for dusting.

Spray oil for cooking In a large food processor place all the ingredients. Blend until well mixed.  Using your hands, form the mixture into mini meatballs (you’ll probably get about 18), dust with flour and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Heat the  oil in a large frying plan and sauté the rissoles for about 15 minute or until golden and cooked through.

Falafel 400g tin chick peas drained½ small onion, very finely chopped1 garlic clove, minced1/2 tsp ground cumin1/2 tsp ground coriander2 Tbsp flour, plus extra for shaping2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley, mint or corianderSalt and pepperSpray oil (or cook in a thick layer of canola oil for a treat!) Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Flour your hands, and then divide into 12 portions, shaping each into a round patty. Lightly pan fry each falafel for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden and crisp.

Uncooked patties can be made a day ahead and refrigerated, covered, or frozen
