Salmon and Veggie Pasta for Kids



4 portion(s)

  • 1 small carrot chopped
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 stick of celery
  • 1/2 zucchini
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 florets of cauliflower
  • 2 florets of broccoli or broccolini
  • 80 g cream cheese
  • 1/2 --- cup macaroni or risoni, optional
  • 100 g smoked salmon, roughly chopped
  • drizzle of oil

Recipe's preparation

  1. Cook the pasta using your preferred method.

    We boiled it on the stove top whilst we made the salmon and veggie mix.

    Set aside.

  2. Place the zucchini, cauliflower and broccoli or broccolini in the TM bowl and chop at speed 5 for 2 seconds.

    If your child is not fond of veggie pieces chop for 5 - 10 seconds.

    If you're making this dish for a baby chop for 10 - 15 seconds).

    Set aside.

  3. Place the carrot, onion, garlic, and celery in the TM bowl and chop at speed 5 for 5 seconds.

    Add the smoked salmon and oil and cook on Varoma at reverse speed 1 for 2 mins.

    Add the zucchini, cauliflower and broccoli mix and the cream cheese and cook at 90 degrees celcius on reverse speed 1 for 2 mins.

    Season with salt and pepper if desired and fold through the cooked pasta.

    If you're making this dish for a baby add the pasta to the TM bowl (that still contains the veggie mix) and chop at high speed (or turbo in bursts) until you have the desired consistency. Alternatively you could omit the pasta altogether.


Accessories you need



For adults (2 serves) break the cauliflower and broccoli florets into smaller florets and just add them to cook with the zucchini.

For a lovely variation use cooked quinoa instead of pasta.

Use whatever veg you like or happen to have in the fridge.

If you want the veggies less crunchy for fussy kids cook for a little longer at the last step....but this dish is a great way to get toddlers and kids used to the texture and taste of veggies.

We usually make this dish when we have found smoked salmon on special...something that the guy of the house is particularly good at! When we find it on special we buy a few packets and freeze them.
