I haven’t been writing about B’s favourite food for quite some times.. that is mainly because she eats less of baby more and more adult food nowadays. No, I’m not talking about masak lemak cili api or even chicken curry here. She eats mainly soups, spaghetti, chicken rice, tosei, nasi lemak (minus the sambal) and even beriyani..! Owh.. she loves the beriyani!! Hahaha..
Today I wanna share one of her favourite nutritious daily food that she eats almost everyday!! And that is mixed soup (pronounced as “shoup” by her!) to eat with rice (a.k.a “sh-ice”).
It’s just the same soup that we eat everyday except I put a lot of things (basicly everything!!) that she needs.. from proteins i.e. chicken balls or meat balls or fish balls. Those balls are home made, I didn’t buy the one from the shop to avoid preservatives. It’s actually very easy to make..
You just add a little bit of minced meat, with some onion, shallot and ginger.. Just enough to give a little taste to the meat balls and a pinch of salt with tepung jagung (my goodness, I really can’t think of the English name for tepung jagung, right now!!!)
And you make it into a cute little balls shapes..
Taddaaaa… Not that cute but that will do! ;)
Besides meats, you can also use minced chicken and fish to make the balls.
I also all some macaroni and potato which is my carbohydrate back-up just in case Bella refused to eat rice ;) Yeah, yeah, yeah.. sometimes she can be quite picky but most of the time, she whacked everything!! :D
As for vegetables, I add broccoli, carrots and spinach in the soup. She can eat the carrots and broccoli on her own but not the spinach, what I did was I slices it into small pieces and just add to the soup.
Bella also loves egg, but only the white ones, so, I let her eat on her own the white ones and left the egg yolk on the soup, stir it and she will drink the soup together with the spinach and yellow egg!!
Sometimes we also add egg taufu to replace the real egg. She doesn’t really know the difference thou.. As long as it’s tasty ;)
So that’s how I make Bella’s soup. And she can finish this one whole bowl on her own together with some rice!!
(Yeah, I use mangkuk tingkat to pack her food.. hahha.. so old-skool!!)
Dya have any other recipes to share with other mommies out there.. I would love to hear that!!
