Hey Everyone! Thank you joining my little chefling and me in celebrating Food Revolution all year long.
(If you are joining us now: The big day is over (a full recap and links to all the albums HERE) and like we promised each other we are going to keep this revolution alive 365 days and create a healthier and happier world! This year Food Revolution Day was, above all, about sharing the power of cooking and we are focusing on ten recipes that together can teach us all the skills we need to feed ourselves and our families good, nutritious food for years to come! Each month I will be sharing one out of the ten Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution recipes so we can all cook it together with our children. Just one recipe in 30 days! Yes, that is it, so doable right? And at the end of the year, I assure you we will have children who will appreciate new flavours, taste new ingredients and flavours, develop a love for real food and will make tons of happy memories with you in the kitchen).
Month eight. Recipe eight.
This is such a great recipe for the markets are bursting with lovely produce right now. Loads of vegetables, seasonal greens, beans, pasta and cheese make it wholesome. One bowl is what it takes to get all the nutrients into your little one’s tiny body.
Hearty and nutritious, minestrone soup is a tasty crowd-pleaser and is super easy to tweak according to the vegetables you have in the house. Parmesan is a great seasoning and, when used carefully, it’s a good source of calcium, which we need to maintain strong and healthy bones.
Here is a super fun video for your little ones that they can watch before they begin making the soup.
