Pork Ball Wrap!
This delicious, easy and speedy supper was a hit with the boys and it is a quick fire way to get extra veg into them. They are now used to using little gem lettuce leaves as a wrap instead of flour tortillas. To 500gm grass fed minced pork from @seabrightsbutchers I added 2 grated carrots , a good handful chopped flat leaf parsley, 3-4 finely sliced spring onions, 1-3 cloves crushed garlic, a good chunk of finely grated ginger, 1 sliced, seeded fresh red chilli . Spice wise, add 1 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp ground coriander or 1.5 tsp homemade 5 spice. Either way, loaded with immune boosting deliciousness. Add a raw egg and 1tsp maldon salt, 1/4 tsp pepper. This should take about 5 minutes. Get your hands in and squelch about. I do this armed with marigolds. Make golf ball sized patties. This takes another 5 mins. I double batch and make one lot for supper and the other lot go straight in the freezer on a tray so that I can bag up for an easy supper another night. I pan fried them in coconut oil as time was short - this took about 10 mins. Had I been more organised, I would have baked in the oven for about 20-30 mins at 220C.
Sometimes I think we worry that these flavours are too strong for young children but I always think about children in countries where they have chilli in their breakfast congee or Dahl for example. It is all about giving it a go. Sharing food and making sure that if it is to be tasty enough for them, it needs to be tasty enough for me too. Also, this are mini burgers - what is not to like?! Make salads and mayo as an extra treat if you have time.
