    Kiwi Kathy's Note:

    This is a great recipe for toddlers, especially if you are vegetarian or have a baby who is not fussed on eating meat. My grandson refuses to chew meat (now aged 19 mths) so we are always looking for ways to make sure he gets an adequate diet. These simple ingredients cook up easily and the recipe makes at least 10 servings and is good to freeze.

      Delicious! I enjoyed this for lunch with my 2.5 year old who ate two bowls. I made it using canned lentils and chicken broth, added a diced zucchini and simmered all until the veggies were tender. I did not mash it. Next time I may try it with sweet potatoes instead of white ones. Can't wait for lunch again tomorrow!

      This was right on the money! So easy and tasty, I added extra stock as we felt like more of a soup. Served with a spoonful of pesto and a little sour cream, you could add whatever you like to this- zucchini, capsicum, corn, parsley whatever. A good "emergency" meal. Thanks!
