Delicious and Nutritious Meals for Your Littlest Foodie!
The Littlest Foodie’s parents also ate halibut, and baked sweet potato and a salad with sliced pears tonight for dinner. Scroll to the bottom for the Mama/Dada Foodie recipe.
Ingredients for Littlest Foodie’s recipe:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash sweet potato and poke it with a fork about 10 times. Wrap potato in aluminum foil that’s been lightly sprayed with cooking spray and bake for 45-60 minutes (until soft and cooked through). You can cut bake time by microwaving the potato for 2 minutes on high and then popping into the oven.
Wash pear and also poke with a fork several times, lightly coat with cooking spray and wrap in aluminum foil. Pop pear into the oven with the sweet potato and bake for 30 minutes (until tender).
While sweet potato and pear are baking, add 1 tsp of olive oil to a small frying pan and cook halibut on medium heat until cooked through (about 2-3 minutes on each side.
Remove peels from the baked sweet potato and the baked pear and also remove the seeds from the pear. Combine a 1/2 cup of the baked sweet potato (about 1/2 of a large sweet potato), the pear and the halibut in a blender or food processor with desired amount of water, formula or breast milk and blend until smooth. Serve to your Littlest Foodie once it cools to an appropriate temp!
Mama/Dada Foodie Fish Dinner Ingredients:
Heat olive oil in a medium frying pan on medium-high heat. Season halibut filets on both sides with a little salt and sprinkle with a little flour. Add halibut to frying pan and sear for about 3 minutes on one side. Flip filets and sear other side for 2 minutes, baste with your desired amount of your favorite marinade, turn heat down to medium-low and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until desired doneness.
Serve with a baked sweet potato and a salad. The yummy salad I made was a mix of arugula and baby spinach with pear, blue cheese, red onion, almond slices and Annie’s Lite Poppy Seed Dressing (http://www.annies.com/products/dressings-oils/lite-poppy-seed-dressing-8oz/). Enjoy!
