Kids recipe: healthy green pikelets
These are a simple snack for littlies that can be whipped up in a few minutes and are full of healthy goodness!
½ large head broccoli (approximately)
1 large handful spinach (tough stalk removed) or baby spinach
3 free-range eggs
½ cup fortified baby rice cereal
Olive oil, for frying
- Cut broccoli into florets and discard the stalk. Place in a food processor and blitz until very finely chopped. You need 1 cup for this recipe – measure to check you have the correct amount and return to the food processor. Add spinach, eggs and baby rice and process until smooth.
- Heat a drizzle of oil in a large cast-iron or non-stick fry pan on a medium heat.
- Cook pikelets in two batches. Add tablespoons of mixture to the pan and cook for 2–3 minutes on one side, before using a fish slice to carefully flip over and cook on the other side, until set and lightly browned. Add a little more oil between batches as needed. Serve warm or cold.
