A spinach croquettes recipe from 10 months to 99 yo
Jan 26, 2021
Food is soooo important in life, but sharing food with our family is even more important and it surely adds glitters to our days!
Our LAMAchef Manon imagined a recipe that will suit both children and parents, that you can cook at the same time… and therefore promises a super nice family lunch:
"Spinach, mozzarella and curry croquettes"
> For 20 croquettes:
- 200g fresh or frozen spinach
- 260g of potatoes
- 30g of onion (optional)
- 1 ball of mozzarella (or 120 gr of grated mozzarella)
- 3 tablespoons of flour
- 2 egg yolks
- a pinch of curry
- 1 tablespoon of cooking oil
Here we go:
- Peel and cut the potatoes and onion and add them to the spinach. Steam for 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, separate egg yolks from whites, chop mozzarella and voila… well, almost.
- Drain vegetables well, add egg yolks and mash with a fork until you obtain a nice paste.
- Add 3 spoons of flour, a pinch curry and the mozzarella.
And now the fateful moment. We are in Singapore, it’s hot, our kitchens don’t have aircon, but despite all that it’s a challenge you can achieve: let’s shape pretty croquettes!
- Flour your work plan, make 20 balls and roll them gently in the flour (avoid too much flour on your croquettes though, otherwise it will leave a thick and unpleasant film once cooked).
- Heat oil in a pan, flatten your balls into flat croquettes (shaped like pucks) and cook them for approx. 8 minutes (4 minutes on each side).
Serve it right away with some meat and salad, bon appétit!
Baby can of course eat this recipe with his hands and he/she will love it.
