What’s for lunch*: “Best ever spag bol” with chicken livers

January cheap eats #2

This recipe is a version which was adapted from A Girl Call Jack’s version of a Jamie Oliver recipe. The bolognese includes chicken livers which are nutrient-dense – packed full of iron, and b vitamins. And red lentils also provide good amounts of vitamins and minerals. At the moment the toddler is often too busy to want to eat. So am working hard not to let it bother me, so it doesn’t become a big issue. ‘t I know at least when she’s eating this she’s getting lots of vitamins and minerals. And if you’ve got bad memories of liver, don’t worry, this dish is tasty! I bought a 400g pack of organic chicken livers for £2.69 (this recipe uses 200g so you can make up two batches and freeze some).

Forcing children to eat food is a very bad idea,  getting them to try a little bit of everything is the ideal.

Anyway, please keep an open mind and try it, it’s Jack Monroe’s  spaghetti bolognese recipe posted her blog last week,  – it’s adapted from a recipe in…
