Quick Super Cheesy Zucchini Risotto For Kids

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Well, obviously, it’s not only for kids and because it’s got no wine in it, it’s not exactly a risotto. But tasty and cheesy, Bobcat loved it. I cooked it last night when I was craving curry and Bobcat is not a huge fan of curry (at the moment. He used to like it, but he’s quite picky nowadays). So …

Italian Style Avocado And Tomato Dip Or Cream

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I love finding new ways how to make avocado a little bit more attractive for my family. Instead of trying to make them understand how good is avocado for them (it contains very little fat, but lots of Omega 3 and 6,  fiber, potassium, vitamins E, K, B6 and C and protein) I rather just create tasty food with these super …

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

Keep coming up with new pasta dishes for the whole family (preferably a meat-free one) is challenging. I was looking for something new to try when I came across this recipe on BBC Good Food I liked the idea of spinach and ricotta combination filled pasta tubes. Rotolo (Italian for roll) can be made from fresh lasagne pasta. But I didn’t want …

Fresh Spinach and Pear Salad With Feta Cheese And Pomegranate

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I’m a big fan of salads combining fruits, vegetables and cheese. I could eat them every day. When you’re having guests and you want to prepare something different from the usual green salad, this could work very well as a good-looking, tasty and not your everyday starter dish. There’s not much work with it either, ready in 15 minutes. The …

Pasta With Salmon And Broccoli In Cheese Sauce – Great Toddler Meal

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I normally have this in the freezer all the time, for Bobcat and for the days when he’s extra picky and won’t eat anything substantial. Pasta can always come. So it’s a good idea to add as much healthy and nutritious ingredients to a pasta dish as you can. Very simple to prepare, a real comfort food for him. If …

Rich Lentil Soup – One Pot Super Meal

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I love rich, hearty, almost stewy soups, without meat of course. I’m talking about the ones you could enjoy with a piece of crusty bread and some red wine on a cold day. This lentil soup is like that. Lots of vegetables, some hot chili and green spices. Lentil is a core vegetarian ingredient in my view. Rich in fibre, folate, iron …

Warming Winter Salad With Quinoa, Roasted Vegetables and Avocado

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I assume – dear reader – you feel the same way after all the holiday celebrations: not only that you ate a lot in the last 2 weeks, but lots of sugary, greasy or meaty things. (Not to mention the drinks…) I feel that my body needs healthier food, because I even have cravings for lighter, vegetarian meals. But still …

Easy Creamy Carrot Soup With Ginger

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com3 Comments

Winter time is soup time for me, I love all kinds of veggie loaded clear or creamy soups. They are also a great way to put more vegetables on the dinner table. Carrot is one of the vegetables we can still benefit from after the cooking process, because it’s easier for our bodies to take advantage of some of its protective …

Oh, and the gorgeous smell of the freshly baked cookies will fill your …
