“This is a great recipe for toddlers, especially if you are vegetarian or have a baby who is not fussed on eating meat. My grandson refuses to chew meat (now aged 19 mths) so we are always looking for ways to make sure he gets an adequate diet. These simple ingredients cook up easily and the recipe makes at least 10 servings and is good to freeze.”
