Help your kid discover their inner chef with these easy dishes

There’s no lack of TV shows celebrating talented kid chefs turning out restaurant-calibre dishes. Whether you’re raising a culinary wunderkind or not, your kids can grow their kitchen skills gradually, starting with simple meals prepared under your guidance.

 

Pizza

Always a child-pleaser, pizza is a great meal to make with kids. They can be involved in every step of the process, and they love to personalize their pizzas.  For example, pre-schoolers can help to knead and roll the dough; as well as ‘paint’ on the sauce with a basting brush and get creative with patterns or funny faces using toppings like olives, peppers, and pepperoni.

 

Sandwiches

Get your kids to invent their own “sammies” by choosing the type of bread, condiments, and fillings. Let them build their own creations, using dull plastic knives to spread the mayo or peanut butter. Tortillas are fun to roll up and cut into spirals, or you can pull out the cookie cutters and let them select fun shapes for their sliced bread.

 

Soup

For children that are old enough, teach them how to cook their own soups with close supervision. Using induction hobs like the Electrolux EHC326BA with its 14 power levels makes it easy to set a precise heat to boil or simmer your soups.  As induction hobs use electro-magnetic fields rather than flames to generate heat, it also reduces the risk of accidents. Be sure to check out Chef E’s Pumpkin Soup with Ginger and Sesame Croutons for a unique dish.

 

 

Cookies

Even toddlers can get in on baking a batch of cookies.  Assemble and measure the ingredients in advance, and allow them to pour each into the bowl as you mix. Older kids can do the mixing once they’re comfortable holding the bowl steady with their other hand.  Even easier are “no-bake” cookies that use nut butters as the base. Just mix in the ingredients, and roll into balls.
