Toddler recipe: red lentil sauce

5:05 PM Valerie Ohata 0 Comments

I already wrote earlier that red lentils are very healthy, they are rich in iron and other vitamins that children need. Since my child had severe anemia, my husband and I completely changed his diet, adding iron containing and healthy products. The results of the analyzes show that it really worked and all the vitamins, including hemoglobin, have perfect numbers. All my recipes for children are including vitamin and mineral rich products.
You can also add minced meat to the sauce. It should be fried lightly at the beginning with vegetables and then simmered with lentils. If you want you can add some favorite spices. Also suitable for adults, no need to cook separately :)
