If there is one thing my son the Robot loves it’s Tomato based meals. They are his favourite. As long as there is tomato in it he will eat it. Raw tomato is a no no though, don’t give this boy a tomato without it having been cooked.
This has inspired this new series on my blog, Two Tiny Tomatoes. We’ve been baby led all the way and all the food that Dave and I eat the Robot eats too. We like to make home-made tasty food that we can all eat. Lasagna, bolognaise, pasta sauces to name but a few. Join me on a tomato exploration to see if we can widen out tomato repertoire…
This week I’m starting off with;
Tomato Chicken with Rice and Kale
We often buy a free range chicken to cook whole and use the chicken bits over a few days. If I’m feeling up for it I also make my own chicken stock with the carcass, it makes soups yummy. This is a really simple recipe and can be served with a variety of vegetables and sides. Rice is good for the Robot because he can just scope it up and shovel it in.
- Onion – chopped
- 1tsp Ground Cumin
- 2tsp Coriander
- Cooked chicken strips
- 400g Can of chopped tomatoes
- 1tbsp of Tomato Puree
Fry the onion until soft. Add the spices and cook for 2 minutes stirring occasionally. Add the chicken strips followed by the tomatoes and the puree. Bring to the boil, cover then simmer for 15 minutes. Serve warm with your sides.
Here it is;
Nice and easy this one. What are your favourite tomato based meals? I need the inspiration!
