You know I could never understood how some moms could complain about their children being fuzzy eaters or simply refusing to eat veggies. Honestly I always thought it was the mother’s fault for not introducing their children to the different textures and taste of veggies at a young age.
But off course with all “know it all mommy’s” like myself I sit with a teenager that suddenly don’t eat any veggies! Seriously!? We are talking about a little 3-year-old boy who made his mommy look so good in the supermarket in front of other mommy’s by asking me to buy broccoli.
Which reminds me, I never got to thank the producer of Power Puff girls for that broccoli episode where the aliens invaded the broccoli and the children had to save the parents who ate the broccoli by only means of eating the broccoli themselves.
So since my son don’t eat any veggies anymore (unless it’s on a pizza or a hamburger),I’ve decided to make a hamburger salad.
Yes I know what you’re thinking…She is from South Africa, pumpkin in the muffins and salad with grated cheese, pure bribery and corruption! :)
1 Iceberg lettuce
6 Gherkins sliced
2 Tomatoes cubed
1 Onion thinly sliced
300 g Steak cut into strips
2 Bread rolls
1 Avocado cubed
Olive oil for frying
1 cup grated Cheese
Freshly ground pepper.
Fry your onions in a little oil till caramelized and set aside.
Fry the steak with a little seasoning of your choice and set aside.
Cut the bread rolls in big cubes and transfer to baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and toast under a hot grill on both sides.
Assemble salads individually and top with grated cheese and a dash of freshly ground pepper.
Avocado is great first foods for babies, mash without adding any salt.
Freeze leftover veggies in ice cubes for the little ones. Next time you’re in a hurry simply reheat for a quick healthy meal.
