Welp, I decided to TRY to start taking a few photos of some of Marlowe’s meals that are a bit newer and not over saturating some of the older What Marlowe Eats posts. I’m going to try to take some more time to put some more recipes together to slowly, but surely get kid-parent friendly meals into a book. Also, just by Alex being here more and helping to cook around here more, I’ve realized that one of the reasons my kid eats so well is because of the small tricks I use to make our meals ever so slightly more kid friendly. Alex cooks with a chef mind (hello beautiful food) and I cook with mama mind… cutting, cooking, and arranging food certain ways to make our meals no-fail hits with M. I’m hoping to incorporate some tips and tricks in future recipes.
Meals can be found behind the cut.
It makes me so happy and sad to say one of Marlowe’s all time favorite snacks is “juicy kale” Happy because it’s freaking kale and she devours it, sad because I don’t make it! We find this garlicy kale in the prepared food section of whole foods and she LOVES it.
Tofu veggie enchiladas.
“cauliflower and sauce”
The sauce is the same dipping sauce I use on fried spring roll recipe. The recipe is a bit outdated, since I basically never fry them anymore, but the sauce is still soooo good.
From this day, she ate the lentils with caramelized onions and garlic… with a squeeze of lemon of course.
For snacks: fruits ALL DAY, popcorn, chips and avocado, and coconut milk yogurt are our go tos.
When she’s not asking for “green soup” (that she eats at least once a week) she’s asking for “green pasta” which is basically a cashew cream broccoli and pesto pasta. For “green soup”, use THIS recipe, add one head of broccoli (no chickpeas), blend and voila, green soup!
Happy weekend everyone 🙂
