This recipe is a quick easy dinner with plenty of fat that a growing child needs and nutrient rich veggies! My daughter likes it best with a side of potatoes dipped in her ranch dressing (french fries cooked in avocado oil, hash browns, etc).
1 small head of broccoli
An overflowing 1/2 cup chopped carrots (I used orange and purple)
1/2 a medium size Gala apple, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup avocado
1 TBS avocado oil
4 half slices of uncured bacon
1 slice of allergy-friendly ground pork sausage
Just a sprinkle of the following seasonings:
- onion powder
- black pepper
- garlic powder
To soften the broccoli and carrots:
- Place the broccoli in a bowl with about 2 TBS of water, cover with a plate, and microwave for 2 minutes (or steam some other way, but not until it is mushy).
- Do the same with the carrots, but only add 1 TBS of water.
Now, in a large skillet (I use a Wok style skillet), cook the bacon slices and sausage together.
Break up the sausage and remove from the skillet when cooked, continue cooking the bacon until it is brown and semi-crispy. Slice or break up the bacon and set aside. Keep the skillet on medium heat.
Add the broccoli, carrots, avocado, apple, avocado oil, and seasonings to the skillet and mix well into the bacon grease. Stir-fry for about 1 minute.
Add the sausage and bacon back into the skillet and continue to stir-fry for at least 3 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and flavored from the bacon.
Serve to your toddler with a side of french fries, hasbrowns, or a grain or higher calorie side dish.
