Superfoods for Babies: 1-2 Years

Recipe: Cheese and Zucchini Sausages

Delicious vegetarian sausages are quick and easy to prepare. If you have time, you can form the mixture into sausage shapes and then set aside in the fridge to firm up before frying.

3 slices white bread
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 1/4 cups grated zucchini

Make bread crumbs by tearing the bread into pieces and blitzing it in a food processor. Heat the butter in a frying pan and fry the onion until soft. Add the grated zucchini and cook for 3 minutes or until softened. Mix with the grated cheese, half the bread crumbs, the egg yolk, and seasoning. Shape into 8 sausages about 4 inches long, using floured hands. Dip into the lightly beaten egg white and then roll in the remaining bread crumbs. Heat some oil in a wok or frying pan and cook the sausages over medium heat, turning carefully as necessary, until lightly golden.

Sweet-and-Sour Sauce:
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
One 14.5-ounce can chopped tomatoes
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon brown sugar
Freshly ground black pepper
