An interesting article which was shared by another mummy revealed that the leaves & stalk of broccoli are actually more nutritious than the florets. Thus, I decided to include them in my dish this time round.
Ingredients (serve 1 toddler & 1 adult):
100g of Alce Nero Organic Spaghettini
100g of salmon
100g of broccoli including leaves & stalk
1 glove of garlic, halved
1 purple onion, quartered
4 small organic potatoes, quartered
1 sprig of rosemary, stalk removed (can replace with 1/8 tsp of dried rosemary)
4 tbsps (sauce) + 2 tbsps (topping) of organic cheddar cheese
1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
Some pasta water
1. Cook pasta in a pot of simmering water till al dente. Drain & leave aside, leaving one cup of pasta water.
2. Steam the remaining ingredients, except broccoli & cheese, for 10 minutes (I'm using my Avent Combined Steamer & Blender).
3. Add in the broccoli & steam for another 5 minutes. Remove salmon & some broccoli florets, add in 4 tbsps of cheddar cheese then blend. Stir in 1 tbsp of pasta water at a time till you get the desired consistency. Pour over cooked pasta, top with remaining cheese & EVOO & serve warm.
Simple, nutritious & yummy too!
