Whenever I serve veggies, duck faces are very familiar around the dining table. Yup, they are some sort of picky eaters when it comes to veggies. Although sometimes, I can make them eat veggies without bribing. But the thing is, they don't enjoy their foods.
That is one big challenge for a mom like me who likes to see her kids enjoy the food and see smiles on their faces at each bite.
One of the best approach I learned is never pressure the kids and serve a variety of brightly colored foods. And also, to achieve the taste that kids would love, use a seasoning that can help bring out the tastiness of my home-cooked dishes.
This time, I will try to involve this new seasoning that I recently discovered, Ajinomoto Pork Savor. It is very cheap, priced at Php2.00/sachet.
|PORKSAVOR™ All-in-One Seasoning Mix is made from natural pork meat extract and bone broth, complete with spices and seasonings to bring out the deliciousness of home-cooked dishes.|
Let me share how I cook my Special Chopsuey:
6 cloves garlic, diced
2 onions, diced
2 carrots, sliced thinly
1/4 kilo cauliflower, break into bite size
1/4 kilo string beans
1/4 kilo snow peas
1/4 kilo cabbage, chopped
2 stalks celery, cut into 2 inches long pieces
1 cup chicken stock
3 tablespoons of cooking oil
2 tablespoons of flour, dissolved in water
2 tablespoons of fish sauce
15 pieces quail eggs, boiled
1/4 kilo of Chicken Gizzard
1 sachet of Ajinomoto Pork Savor
- Simmer chicken gizzard
- In a pan, sauté garlic, onions then add in the chicken gizzard.
- Get your sachet of Ajinomoto Pork Savor and add half of the content.
- Set aside when chicken gizzard is cooked.
- Add cooking oil to the pan.
- Mix in all the vegetables. Add the dissolved cornstarch.
- Add the remaining Ajinomoto Pork Savor.
- Cook for about 10 minutes or until the vegetables are done.
- Add salt and pepper according to taste.
- Transfer to a clean plate/bowl.
- Top with boiled quail eggs.
- Serve hot with rice.
And here's how my dish turned out, Tadaaaa!
|"Where are you, picky eaters??? It's already lunch time!"|
And since the kids also like boiled quail eggs, I added some on top of my Chopsuey. One way to make kids eat vegetables is to include something they really love to eat.
|No more picky eaters in the house :)|
