I found this recipe in Book of Soups by the Culinary Institute of America. The authorâ€™s note caught my attention: â€œthis silky-smooth cream soup derives its thickness and most of its texture from potatoes rather than roux. The sweetness of the leeks and red peppers make a wonderful combinationâ€. Sound so yummy! I was eager to give it a try.
Andâ€¦M loves it and DD loves it! That should be enough! The following recipe is based on the original one from Book of Soups.
People say that “good broth will resurrect the dead,” and that “broth to a cook is voice to a singer”. And the best broth is home-made. I love to make my own chicken broth, because I could be fully in charge of what was in it. With broth homemade, I could totally avoid MSGs, add the right amount of salt and other seasonings and trim out most of the fat.
But sometimes I donâ€™t mind to use a little bit canned broth just to add more flavors, like this recipe. The success of this velvety soup relies on a rich broth made by simmering a full-flavored stewing hen in chicken broth. The result is known as double broth.
The Vietnamese noodle soup with fresh ginger and vegetables is a tasty chicken broth served with homemade pork meat balls, vegetables and rice noodle. It offers comfort, balance, a thousand flavors in a single bowl!
Spinach casserole with bacon and fresh shiitake mushrooms is DD’s favorite recipe. It is is flavorful to her taste bud, friendly to new teeth, nutritious to her health, and fairy easy to cook.
Tender and juicy green beans simmered in rich chicken broth are one of DDâ€™s favorite vegetables.
Today’s recipe is chicken pot pie with fresh vegetables, good for children of 12 months and above.
This recipe is as simple as 1, 2, and 3 (actually there are only two steps to make it). But to a 7-month-old baby, it was a perfect start of â€œbig peopleâ€™s foodsâ€. Since then, DD enjoys the plain flavor and creamy texture of steamed rice.
Carrots & sweet potato mix was one of the first solid foods I introduced to DD. It gave her a totally different taste and brand new experience from the breast milk. She enjoyed its taste and texture. Until this day carrot is still one of her favorite vegetables.
How to get children eat vegetables is virtually an all-too-common challenge to every parent. These are the three tips I used to train DD to eat vegetables.
