Beetroot Meals with Steamed White Pomfret

Beetroot with Spiral Spaghetti
This recipe use simple ingredients; I just put the beetroot with some black fungus into the ikan bilis broth. It tastes not bad, although the soup has a scary colour.

Beetroot Porridge

This is what I normally do to prevent Sarah gets bored with the food I made for her. I will modify the ingredients slightly and switch between noodle and the porridge every two days.

And today it’s the porridge version. I’ve used marinated chicken meat, carrot and of course, the beetroot. The porridge tastes better (sweeter) than spaghetti. I guess it has a nicer appearance too.

Sarah really likes beetroot; she has no problem with the meals. I am very proud of her.

Besides, I also steamed a pomfret with Bovril sauce as her side dish. I’ve obtained this recipe from the menu book that Winnie sent me.

The fish taste not much of the Bovril sauce, but it still tastes good. Sarah managed to finish the pomfret either with the spaghetti or porridge. Good girl!

Steam fish with Bovril...that's a new menu for me. Will give it a try nextime. Normally I will steam fish with Black Bean and Ryan like to eat both the fish+black bean too with rice.

Talk abt beetroot,I just bought 2 beetroots home and plan to cook soup or porridge for Ryan.Never try it before with porridge,Not sure he will like it or not.

Mummy Ryan said...

Me too never let Ryan try beetroot porridge + steam fish wth bovril b4...might try 1 day...
ha ha agreed wth you, the colour of the porridge look scary...same also if u use "red spinach"..then colour of the soup also will turn to red.."..actually the colour is not important....the important is mummy cook nice then Sarah can enjoy the meal without fuss...GOOD GAL....:)

MommyAngel said...

I love the idea of brovil steam fish!! I am glad that Sarah have no objection to all mommies cooking :) You share the fish with sarah too?

little prince's mummy said...

Cool! New Menu again!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...


Yeap, I am very attracted to the menu book that uses bovril to cook food. Very cool and new to me:-)
Actually the fish is for Sarah. So mommy only shared a bite. Kesian!

You may give let Ryan try beetroot and hopefully he will likes it.
I never tried red spinach. I should cook for Sarah some day. Hehe, then it will turned out another "scary colour menu":-)
Luckily Sarah still hasnt know how to judge the appearance of food, or else I doubt she will taste the menu.

Steamed Fish with Black Beans? A very new idea. I will like to learn it from you.
I guess Ryan will be okay with beetroot porridge. He seems to be okay with a lot of food that mommy cooked for him.
Good luck!

If you like beetroot, you may give a try.

Mommy Gwen:
Wah....your bro can cooked porridge very well? So geng! May I know what type of porridge that your bro cooked for Gwen?

Julie said...

I would like to try cooking the bovril fish. Sounds tasty. In fact, I am also thinking of introducing bovril/marmite to Jonathan.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

MeRy said...

Joanne.....hope you will like the steam fish with black bean.
I am cooking beetroot sup tonite using slow cooker...tomolo will use it to cook porridge for Ryan.Not sure he will like it or not coz the porridge sure will looks red in colour.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

I have tried to look for the canned black beans during my sundry shopping, but could not find it. Sigh!
Anyway, I will keep the recipe in my mind and will try it soon.
So did Ryan likes the beetroot porridge?
