With schools closed and most families on lockdown inside, we thought it might be useful to share some recipes that are great to cook with the kids. We’ve included baking recipes, but we’ve also listed some family main meals and savoury snacks to make too.

Cooking with kids when you are stuck at home is a great activity for the following reasons:

1. Get’s Kids Interested In Food

Quite often children are more inclined to eat a meal that they have helped to prepare themselves so if you have a fussy or picky eater in the family then this can be a great way to get them eating different foods!

2. An Opportunity For Home Learning

Following a recipe and making food with your kids is a great opportunity to get some home learning in at the same time!

Talk about the ingredients you are using. Like where they have come from, how they are grown, what else those same ingredients could be used for!

Measuring ingredients out is a great visual way to learn about different measurements like, grams, ounces, pounds, fluid ounces and so on and so forth.

Even reading the recipe itself gives kids an opportunity to practice their reading and perhaps learn new vocabulary that they may not have come across in their usual school curriculum!

3. Helps to develop Fine Motor Skills

Cooking with children, especially younger kids is an excellent way to help develop their fine motor skills. Measuring out ingredients, stirring, and even cutting up ingredients (be sure to use a safe kid-friendly knife!) can all be easy ways to develop motor skills.

4. Builds Confidence

Helping to prepare a family meal or some snacks and then serving it up themselves can give children a massive sense of achievement and boosts their self worth!

Cutting down the amount of meat you eat as a family doesn’t have to be difficult or boring! I’ve teamed up with Quorn to show you a really tasty and super fun recipe that the kids will love helping with, and the whole family will enjoy eating!

We’re going to be making Tex Mex Tacos using Quorn’s Crunchy Tex Mex Nuggets.

The first step is to cook the nuggets. Place them on a baking tray and cook at 200c for 12 minutes. They can also be cooked from frozen.

Three minutes before the end of cooking, remove the tray from the oven and add the tacos to it. Return for 3 more minutes of cooking. This will warm the tacos through.

Whilst those are cook you can prep all the toppings for your taco. We used:

  • Lettuce
  • Red Cabbage
  • Tomatoes
  • Sweetcorn
  • Coriander
  • Guacamole
  • Lime

But you can use whatever toppings your family enjoys.

Once the nuggets are cooked and the tacos are warmed, serve them all on the table and allow everyone to build their own Tex Mex Tacos!

For lots more recipes using Quorn and ideas for making some of your favourite meals meat-free then head on over to the Quorn website.

You can also see their full range of Vegan products here.

10 Simple Family Meals all made with just a few everyday ingredients

With everything being so uncertain at the moment, supermarkets running out of supplies and everyone being a bit more conscious of food and spending, we thought it might be helpful to put together a list of simple family meals that use just a handful of every day ingredients.

Pasta seems to be in high demand at the moment and I know that a lot of people are struggling to get hold of it in the shops, so for this reason, I have only included two pasta recipes here but these pasta sauces can also be used in other ways.

Try them mixed with rice or as a topping for chicken instead.

Sauces and soups are great for batch cooking so if you’re going to the trouble of making these then definitely make double and have a portion in the freezer for another day.

Tomato Mascarpone Pasta

Mascarpone is one of those ingredients that I love eating (anything that’s in the cream or cheese category is ok with me!) but rarely use it in an actual recipe.

I remember eating a lot of Tomato & Mascarpone Pasta Sauces from those supermarket pots when I was younger so I thought I’d have a go at making my own homemade version.

Tomato & Mascarpone Pasta Sauce Recipe

Tomato & Mascarpone Sauce Ingredients

The ingredients are really very simple. For the sauce I used:

  • Tinned Tomatoes
  • Vegetable Stock
  • Balsamic Vinegar (helps to give a lovely depth of flavour to the tomatoes)
  • Dried Basil (could use oregano instead)
  • Mascarpone Cheese

All of the ingredients except for the mascarpone are put into a saucepan, brought to the boil and then simmered on low for 15 minutes.

Whilst the sauce is cooking, get the pasta cooking in another saucepan.

When the sauce is ready, remove it from the heat and mix in the mascarpone until completely melted. Then stir into the drained cooked pasta.

So quick and easy but super tasty!

Storing & Freezing

If you don’t intend to eat all the sauce at once then it can be stored in a sealed jar or covered bowl in the fridge for up to 2 days.

It can also be frozen and defrosted overnight in the fridge.

Chicken & Broccoli Fritters with cheese

If you’re looking for something a bit different to feed the kids for lunch or dinner then try these tasty Chicken & Broccoli Fritters.

On their own, my kids are not massive fans of either chicken or broccoli. But put them together in a tasty cheesy fritter and it’s a different story!

How To Make Chicken & Broccoli Fritters

The first step is to steam some fresh broccoli on the hob. If you don’t have a steamer then boiling it is fine.

Then in a large bowl we’re going to add chopped chicken, grated cheese, an egg, milk and fresh chives.

Once cooked, chop the broccoli into small pieces and mix that into the rest of the ingredients.

We’re also going to add some flour to help bind the mixture together. You can season the batter with a little salt and pepper at this point, although you may want to skip this if making for younger children.

Add a couple of spoonfuls of the mixture to a frying pan to make one fritter. You should be able to cook four fritters at a time.

Fry for 5 minutes, flip and then cook for another 4 minutes until golden brown.

Your delicious Chicken & Broccoli Fritters are now ready to serve up straight away.

For lunch I serve them with some raw veg like cucumber, tomatoes and carrots. If you want to make a more substantial meal you could serve them with vegetable rice or roasted cubed potatoes.

Delicious cheesy fritters made with chicken and broccoli. Super tasty and kid-friendly, great for lunch or dinner too!


Ingredients

  • 200g brocolli
  • 300g chicken breasts
  • 100g grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 medium egg
  • 100ml milk
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • 50g plain flour
  • optional: salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp oil

Instructions

  1. Chop the broccoli into small florets and steam on the hob until soft.
  2. If you don’t have a steamer then boiling is fine.
  3. Whilst the broccoli is cooking, chop the chicken into small bite sized pieces and add to a large bowl.
  4. Add the cheese, egg, milk and chives and mix well.
  5. When the broccoli is cooked, remove from the pan and chop into very small pieces.
  6. Add the chopped broccoli to the bowl and mix well.
  7. Finally, add the flour and mix again. You can season with salt and pepper at this point is you wish.
  8. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over a low heat.
  9. Add two spoonfuls of the fritter mixture to the pan to make one fritter. You should be able to cook four fritters at a time.
  10. Fry on low for 5 minutes, turn and fry on the other side for another 4 minutes.
  11. Remove the fritters and leave to rest on some kitchen paper to drain off any excess oil.
  12. Fry the remaining fritters and then serve immediately.

Notes

Leftover can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days and reheated in a frying pan again or in the microwave.

These fritters can also be frozen. Place a sheet of baking paper between each fritter to stop them from sticking. Defrost overnight in the fridge and reheat as above.
