December is a special month for Big Sis S. And in her honor I am going to post recipes of food that she likes to eat, for the whole of next week. Now S likes good food and so she likes a lot of grown up food, her recent favorites being the Pepper Shrimp and Chicken Korma. If the food is hot but to her liking she will gladly eat it with a bowl of yogurt on the side. But if not, then it is another story.
For this week, I am going to concentrate only on those recipes which is solely intended for her. These are stuff which makes her face glow and she will eat them without any cajoling. These will be mostly quick and easy stuff which also make good lunch box items.We also love those but these are kid specific versions, mildly spiced, wholesome and healthy, I mean healthy for kids, me I try to stay away from too much cheesy stuff.
I know one week is not enough to blog all of them but I will see how much I can do.
I am also going to try out new easy kid friendly recipes from other blogs, easy being the keyword. To start off is this Bread Pizza which is inspired by Sailaja's Kids Zone which by the way has volumes of great kid friendly recipes. S loved it and so did we. Actually S liked it so much that she took over and prepared most of the bread slices before I popped them in the oven. Thanks Sailaja for such a kid pleaser.
Soften butter and spread smoothly on slices of brown wheat bread. You can use white but brown is better Note: I tried some without the butter and they were as good
Spread tomato ketchup in a thin layer on top of it
Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan
Add some finely chopped onion and fry till onion is soft and pink
Add steamed broccoli, chopped in small florets and fry for a minute. You can substitute with other veggies like carrots, corn or bell peppers too
Add a little pasta sauce and mix well. If you don't have pasta sauce season with salt and pepper.
Spoon this topping on the bread slice
Cover with enough shredded cheese on top
We also added a slice of Kraft singles cut up in bits
Bake in the oven at 375 for 8-10 mins or so till the cheese melts
The yummy and easy bread pizza is ready
