5 French Recipes to Cook with Kids
As French cooking is VERY diverse, I would like to introduce you to different French regions and some local delicious dishes.
We will start with the QUICHE.
Annabelle from The Piri-Piri Lexicon has the typical recipe for this savoury pie made of ham or bacon and cheese.
Then, you can cook an omelette.
It’s a dish made of eggs essentially. Some add crème fraîche or a bit of milk… But I do mine mostly like this:
For 4 people: 2 eggs/pers + 1, a bit of salt, a bit of pepper. Then I beat the eggs with a fork. When they are smoothly creamy, I can add whatever I want: ham, or some parsley, mushrooms (cooked in a pan), even tomatoes, or spinach.
French love their salads:
They can be different type of salad leaves with a vinaigrette or a rice salad, or a pasta salad… It’s always something fresh and nice as a side dish… or even a main dish for the most gourmet ones!
One of the most famous French salad is the Salade Niçoise, as described by Phoebe in her guest-post on Bod for tea about 8 Provençal dishes you have to try. Easy to do with kids and so delicious!!!
