Are you feeding babies and older children? Here's a handy way to do it all.

Mince sapasui

Method

  1. Place vermicelli in a large bowl and add hot water until just covered. Soak for 10-15 minutes or until the noodles expand and turn transparent.
  2. In a saucepan with a steamer, bring water to the boil. Add broccoli to the water, add carrot and beans to the steamer on top. Cook until tender. If you don't have a steamer, put all vegetables together in the saucepan.
  3. For babies aged ~6months – remove a serving of carrot
  4. For babies aged 7-8 months – remove a serving of carrot and broccoli
  5. Heat 1 tbsp of oil (if required to prevent beef from sticking) in a large saucepan over medium heat, add the beef mince and stir fry until brown.
  6. For babies aged 6 months and 7-8 months – remove a serving of mince from pan and set aside for the infant puree.
  7. Add garlic and ginger to the mince and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Add cooked carrot, broccoli, green beans, soy sauce and lemon juice, and simmer for 2 minutes.
  9. Drain the vermicelli over a bowl, saving ½ cup of the soaking liquid. Chop vermicelli into smaller size using scissors if required.
  10. Add vermicelli and ½ cup of soaking liquid to the beef mix, stir to combine and warm through.
