Finding new wholesome meals and tasty snacks for my children is always a challenge, so we were excited to receive the new Let’s Cook by Siba Mtongana.
The book is filled with “delicious yet nutritious easy meals and treats for kids and teens” but there are so many wonderful ideas that the whole family is going to enjoy the recipes in here too.
For me ideas for healthy lunch box food is always something that I struggle with, so I was eager to check out that section first. With recipes for meatball kebabs, sandwich on a stick and veggie sarmies I’ve definitely found some new inspiration to kick off the new year.
There are also some wonderful fun ideas to spoil your kiddies with, including bear-face flapjacks, the chocciest chocolate crepes and even easy pancakes. I loved the fun fruit hearts and flowers (also great for lunch boxes) and we can’t wait to try out the raspberry yoghurt popsicles for the hot summer days. All perfect treats for the school holiday ahead!
There are lovely recipes for morning munchies, including eggs (boiled eggs with pastry soldiers, cloud eggs, and fancy frittata tartlets), porridges and cereals and batters. The on the go section includes snacks, lunchboxes and drinks and there’s also lunch at home (margherita pizza pops or vegetable tacos anyone?) and dinners meals (marvellous mac ‘n cheese is always a favourite) which will help bring smiles to your family’s faces at mealtimes.
If you’re looking to inject some new ideas into your cooking repertoire that even the little ones will enjoy then you should check out Siba Let’s Cook.
Siba Let’s Cook is available from book shops and online retailers for a recommended retail price of R290.
