so here's how to do it. sorry if i'm telling you THE most obvious recipe in the world, but hey, sometimes it's nice to be told the simple stuff...
first up some ingredients you might need. you could of course use anything else. this is what i had in the fridge. i've done this recipe with squash, aubergine, beans and broccoli too. throwing in some spinach at the end too is so good, a great way to sneak in extra greens.
chop up the vegetables into roughly the same size. you don't have to worry about it being chunky it's going to have a blitz at the end. then roast the life out of them with some olive oil and a bit of salt and pepper if you like.
while this is happening bring the can of chopped tomatoes or you could use passata, to a boil with a clove of chopped garlic and some herbs thrown in. i've used rosemary and dried oregano. but thyme, basil etc would be nice too. simmer with some water (about a cup full) for about half an hour (or until the veg is done.) just don't let it reduce down too much. add some more water if you need.
when the veg is nice and roasted and sweet add it to the tomato sauce and give a good stir to combine.
stanley isn't too wild on massive lumps so i tend to blend with a hand blender to make it a bit less chunky but obviously you don't have to. add a bit more salt and pepper if you want.
if you have any fail safe toddler recipes i would seriously LOVE to hear them. i get stuck in such a food rut sometimes with stanley.....it'd be great to share below in the comments or with any links to sites you have! many thanks :)
