It’s up to us as parents to pass on basic skills that our children will need to be successful adults, like being able to swim, do their own laundry, or cook a healthy meal. Teaching our children to cook helps prepare them for the future.
After a heart to heart with Master 8, we decided that I would teach him to cook his five favourite meals before he moved out of home:
Since this month’s Recipe ReDux is asking us to recall some of the first foods we learnt to cook, I thought it would be a great opportunity to share my recipe for Gnocchi Bolognese, the first meal that my little man has learnt to cook on his own.
First Cooking Recollections
Stir up some of your earliest culinary recollections. Did you stand at your grandmother’s elbow to learn to cook? Or did you learn by stumbling through a cookbook by yourself? Share a healthy recipe and the accompanying story about one of your first cooking memories.
Low FODMAP tips: This recipe is low FODMAP when split between four serves. You will need to be careful with vegetable stock and look for one with no onion or garlic. If you are in Australia there are a few safe stocks on the market, including Massel liquid stock, Massel 7’s stock cubes and ‘Fodmapped For You’ range. If you are unable to find a suitable stock you can easily make your own, I recommendthis recipe from A Little Bit Yummy.
