Here's a dish I pulled together as a savoury pre-dinner snack for my husband, Master 5 and me one late afternoon. It's nothing extraordinary but it certainly hit the spot that day, so I thought I'd share it with you. It's a light dish that could be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, a light dinner or even a late night snack.
Pre-schoolers could certainly help out with the preparation of any of the below activities, they will love it! I've included a list of how your young helper/s could help prepare this dish.
day old turkish bread
baby Roma tomatoes, cut in half
4-5 eggs, enough to coat bread
rocket leaves, washed
salt & pepper
Practical life for a pre-schooler 'young helper' ideas
day old turkish bread - adult slices the bread into strips and young helper could slice bread into squares (with guidance)
baby Roma tomatoes, cut in half - young helper could wash, strain, pat dry with paper towel, and slice tomatoes (with guidance)
avocado, sliced - adult cuts in half, slices the avocados still in their skin and young helper could scoop out the flesh with a spoon
4-5 eggs - young helper can crack eggs, add one by one into small bowl, then add one by one to larger bowl, and mix
rocket leaves, washed - young helper can wash, strain, and pat dry
salt & pepper - young helper can season with guidance from adult
Whisk eggs, add diced up bread to eggs and coat.
In a hot frypan, add sunflower oil (or oil of your choosing) and fry eggy bread until cooked to your liking, set aside in a salad bowl.
Using the same frypan (wipe with a paper towel as needed) gently fry the roma tomatoes and add to the fried bread.
Add avocado and rocket, mix, season and serve!
How easy is that!
