I've mentioned before that we're doing the baby-led weaning approach. It is working really well for us. I love that I can give Zoey a little bit of whatever we're eating when we travel or are eating out. At home we still share vegetables, meat, fish, pasta, etc., but I often cook things just for her too. Here is one of our current favorites: fish cakes.
It's made with canned tuna fish and hummus and is ready in a couple of minutes. It is so easy and cheap! It makes quite a few cakes, so I put half in the fridge and freeze the rest for another time. These are so good I find myself sneaking a bite or two.
Original recipe from here
- 12 tablespoons hummus (store bought, or home-made)
- 12 tablespoons canned tuna
- cilantro, basil or any herb
- 8 teaspoons flour (give-or-take a teaspoon)
- pinch of black pepper
- dash of lemon juice
- Add equal amounts hummus and tuna to a bowl. (One can of tuna is around 12 tablespoons)
- Chop herbs and add to bowl. Add a pinch of pepper and a dash of lemon juice.
- Add flour, a few teaspoons at a time, and mix thoroughly. Add enough flour to make a thick paste.
- Heat oil in a large skillet. Form small patties and fry on medium heat in batches. Try not to crowd the pan.
- Cook until lightly brown on both sides.
