Running out of ideas for baby led weaning meals? I made these a few days ago for Vida as she’s really starting to hate the spoon! I made easily transportable food for our holiday but she was having none of it and has now let me know that she plans on being an exclusive baby led weaner (sounds weird!)
You can do these with salmon too, and could even do them without fish if you’re vegetarian. (For those of you who are new to my recipes, yes, I post plant-based stuff on the whole as a vegetarian, but my kids eat everything so I post a whole manner of things for baby food ideas).
I put peas, spinach and sweetcorn in for added vegetable goodness and used sweet potato instead of white potato for extra fibre and vitamins A and C.
They look like they could take a while to make but honestly, they were really quick. I also baked them instead of frying them and they were devoured by little miss Vida!
Also, apologies for the awful photography, but I just don’t have time to style my pictures at the moment. The priority is making the food and uploading the recipes for you guys, not photography. I’m flat out with the kids and work so something had to take a back-seat and that something is photo styling, as I’m sure you can all understand! Anyway I hope you enjoy the recipe 🙂
2 sweet potatoes
1 can organic wild tuna
Handful frozen peas,
2 tbsp flour of choice (can use gluten free or buckwheat as I prefer to stay away from white flour but use whatever you have)
2 tbsp gluten free breadcrumbs
Steam the sweet potatoes until soft, adding in the peas and spinach towards the end.
Tip into a bowl and mix in the tuna and sweetcorn.
Prepare 3 bowls; 1 with the flour, 1 with the egg (beaten), 1 with the breadcrumbs.
Mould mixture into croquette shapes and dip in flour, egg then breadcrumbs and place on oven tray. Bake for 15 mins.
You can also freeze the mixture if it makes too much, but if you have older kids, offer it to them too – a great meal for everyone!
Love & health,
