Even as stay-home parents, whipping up a meal is so exhausting! It is so easy to just get a take-away meal but that is both expensive and usually unhealthy. If you have a toddler or young children at home, making a meal that is tasty, healthy and something they would eat is almost rocket science.
We are happy to share some of our recipes that we love and have the stamp of approval from our little ones!
Remember to mix it all up before eating it! The beauty of this dish is in mixing up all the wonderful textures and flavours.
Some side notes for your reference:
#1 To make it healthier, you can add on brown rice to the rice mix!
#2 You can replace the vegetables with other colourful and tasty veggies like capsicums and red cabbage
#3 Adults can have a runny sunny side up if you'd like. If you are feeding this to your toddler, make sure the eggs are THOROUGHLY cooked. DO NOT give them raw/runny eggs and run the risk of salmonella infection.
#4 The Korean red pepper paste does have some heat in it. If your child is able to take a little heat, you can try half a tea spoon. Adult can try a full tea spoon of it.
#5 If you cannot find the red pepper paste, get tomato paste instead. Supermarkets should have canned tomato paste/puree that you can use. You can simply cook it down for about 5 minutes on a pan to get the best flavour.
#6 If you are desperately short of time, a spoon of tomato ketchup is fine too!
