How to cook
When preparing the vegetables you need to be sure you meet all hygienic standards involved with the preparation of children's food, in order to retain the maximum nutritional value of the products.
Wash all the vegetables thoroughly with water, clean them, peel and rinse once again.
For the broth, prepare a pot with a lid, pour the water into it and salt it once it comes to a boil. Add the aforementioned vegetables, coarsely chopped. Once they're boiled, strain the hot broth and leave the vegetables to cool. *
For the soup, cut the vegetables into fine cubes ahead of time, grate the tomato on a grater. Add the oil, the mashed onions separated from the broth and the carrot.
Make a thickening agent from the yoghurt and egg yolk, pour in a little of the broth from the soup to it.
Pour the diluted thickening agent into the soup after you've removed it from the stove.
Finally, add the butter and very finely chopped parsley. **
* When making soup for children up to the age of 5, don't make a roux, instead saute the ingredients in oil and water. Spices such as black pepper, bay leaf and allspice are not recommended.
Mash the boiled and cooled vegetables from the broth to prepare a vegetable puree, then dilute with milk or part of the broth itself.
** If your child doesn't like parsley leaves, boil them with the stalks and then remove them.
Avoid thickening agents with egg whites for children up to the age of 3, due to allergies.
