One of my challenges in raising 2 kids is getting them to eat vegetables. It can be quite a struggle. Each time I prepare vegetables, they would simply push them off their plates which worries me so much. We all know how important it is for growing kids to eat plenty of veggies, right? So, as a mother who is willing to go to great lengths for her kids' nutrition, I have found ways on how to cook vegetables in a way that they will enjoy it.
A recent favorite of theirs is Water Spinach Cracklings or Crispy Kangkong. I love preparing it because it's easy and I am assured that they will eat every bite of it!
Wanna give it a try with your kids, too? Here's my recipe for Crispy Kangkong as taught to me by my mother.
A bunch of Water Spinach (Kangkong)
1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup flour
1 cup cold water
A dash of salt
Remove leaves from stalk, wash, pat them dry with paper towels and set aside.
In a separate container, mix beaten egg, corn starch, flour, cold water, salt and whisk well.
Pre-heat your cooking oil.
One by one, dip your kangkong leaves into the batter then drop it into the hot oil.
Once light brown, remove leaves from oil and place on paper towels.
Serve immediately with mayonnaise or any favorite dip.
There you have it! An easy vegetable recipe that kids will love!
What tips can you give to ensure that our kids are eating the right amount of veggies?
