I’m experimenting with new foods that may be a win for fussy eaters.
Interestingly, I’m finding very little out there that ticks boxes so I’m having to go Heston Blumenthal and create my own!!
I read somewhere that coating vegetables in cornflour makes them go more crispy. Crispy is usually a good texture when it comes to picky eaters so was definitely worth a whirl.
I parboiled the carrots, sliced them thinly and then coated them lightly in cornflour and baked them at 200˚ until crispy.
It definitely made them crispier than usual.
Weirdly the flour didn’t really change the flavour much either.
I think this could be worth a whirl for many children who are okay with carrots but still struggling to transition from raw to cooked.
Although these are not bad at all (my favourite testers all thought they were crispier and tasted okay) I am still not 100% where I would like to be so more experimenting to come 😊
