Method:

  1. Put the vegetables in a pan and cover with boiling water or stock and cook for 4–5 minutes.
  2. Once cooked, strain the vegetables, keeping
a couple of tablespoons of the cooking liquid. Add as much cheese/yogurt as you think your child wants, and purée with a blender.
  3. Serve with a swirl of cream cheese/crème fraîche/yogurt and garnish with the herbs. Hey presto! A meal for your child, which isn't hummus and breadsticks.

Serves 1 child

Ingredients

  • 150g frozen vegetables
  • Enough water or stock to cover
  • A generous dollop of cream cheese/crème fraîche/
  • Greek yogurt – whatever you have in the fridge
  • Chives or flat-leaf parsley, to garnish
  • Frozen veg is picked in season and frozen within hours, maintaining a high vitamin content at the same time as being quite cheap
