Have the kids help you measure and weigh ingredients, mash the potatoes and shape the patties. For more tips on cooking with kids check out Kids in the Kitchen on Simply Veg.
The global veg invasion has landed here in the United Kingdom. The vegetables have kidnapped our great roast dinners and the kids will need your help more than ever. Your mission is to help the kids find them and eat them to defeat them. Reclaim our roast and say it loud, say it proud…
This roast is mine!
Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 30 mins
300g potatoes, peeled, cooked in boiling water until soft, and mashed (or use leftover mashed potato)
100g green cabbage, cooked and shredded
50g grated Cheddar or mozzarella, optional
Veg Portions / Serving: 2
To make a roast a little more fun we have suggested these little twists on bubble & squeak, but any roast with a good helping of veg will work – just serve with a reminder to the children to Eat Them to Defeat Them and get them to say “This roast is mine!”
Preheat your oven to gas 4/350°F/180°C. In a bowl, mix together the cooked mashed potatoes, green cabbage, peas and cheese if using, make into 10 balls of equal amounts and place onto a greased baking sheet, making sure they are flattened to form a puck shape.
Place into the pre heated oven and cook until golden brown, about 15-20 mins. Alternatively, you could fry them in 1 tbsp oil for about 3-4 mins on each side, until golden brown. Serve as an accompaniment to a roast dinner.
