What did Little Miss S eat this week

Here are some of her favourites this week:

Ricotta Ravioli or Virtinukai

I wrote about these in one of my posts already. She absolutely loves them. This time we are serving some crushed strawberries with them rather than blueberries.

Haddock with sautéed leeks and mashed potato.

Easy peasy and healthy. Just mash some potatoes with a little bit of sour cream. Sauté leeks in butter and poach haddock in milk. Delicious and super quick.

Lamb stew with dried chanterelle mushrooms (chanterelles are a good source of vitamin B1 and D!)

500g of lamb neck filled diced into slices
1 large onion
2 carrots
2 cloves of garlic
A handful of dried chanterelle mushrooms
1.5 tbs of flour
500ml of stock
1 tbs of butter
1 tea spoon of dried rosemary
Olive oil for frying the lamb
Freshly ground black pepper for seasoning

Prepare your mushrooms at least 3 hours in advance. Soak them in some luke warm water.

Fry diced onion in some olive oil, then add carrots and meat. Once meat is slightly fried, add crushed garlic and flour. Fry for 5 - 8 minutes before adding a glass of hot stock. Stew until the stock has evaporated before adding another glass. Keep doing this until you use up all of your stock. The whole stewing time is about 1 - 1.5 hours, until the meat is very tender and the sauce is creamy and thick.

When you have approx. 15 minutes left till the end, add your mushrooms, pepper, rosemary and butter to the stew. If the meat is already tender, but the sauce is still not thick enough, just turn up the heat a little bit and stir the stew until you reach the desired consistency.

Serve with mashed potatoes.

This was made for Little Miss S, but my Hubby ate half of it! Yummy!
