So we got the new Annabel Karmel book recently and I decided to have a go at a couple of things on a rainy Saturday afternoon.
We’ve used her recipe books for as long as we’ve had children, and some of her recipes have become real go-to family favourites over the years.
First up was Chocolate Beetroot Brownies. I love dark chocolate brownies, and the addition of beetroot made this an easy sell. The recipe itself is a doddle to follow, even for an enthusiastic amateur like myself. I ended up giving them an extra 5 minutes in the oven as I wasn’t convinced they were ready, and that seemed to be just right.
Everyone enjoyed them, even Daisy (who has a natural aversion to fruit & vegetables!).
Next up was Chicken, Cherry Tomato & Sweetcorn Quesadillas, with a Cottage Cheese Dip.Again, dead easy to knock up as an easy Saturday night dinner, and quite healthy ingredients as you would expect from Annabel Karmel.This went down well with the kids too (a bit of a pizza feel to the meal as it was cut up like wedges), and Florence enjoyed tearing her wedge apart and eating it in the baby-led way. Look forward to Charlotte’s blog post of what she was doing in the kitchen alongside me, it was delicious!
