Welcome to Mum&sons

My two eldest boys challenged me to start a cooking blog with simple recipes that we can cook together - and my youngest one has now joined in. I am hoping they pick up some cooking and photograph skills... or that at least they learn to design and run a blog.


You need:
- four carrots
- fresh coriander (to taste)
- a table spoon of sesame seeds
- two table spoons of olive oil and one of vinegar
- salt
Grate the carrots. Toast the sesame seeds on a pan over low to medium heat (watch this all the time as they burn very easily). Add the seeds and the coriander to the carrots. Mix the olive oil, salt and vinegar and add it to the salad.
You can replace the sesame and coriander by pine nuts and parsley.
Children like using graters but supervise them closely as they can cut themselves easily. Also, careful when you toast the sesame seeds as some of them pop out.
