Why is it so hard to get kids to eat? parents who have not making a separate kid-friendly dinner for their little ones are lucky – sometimes it’s just easier to make chicken nuggets (again!) so you can eat your dinner in peace. But for nights when you want your kids to try something new, Martha Stewart has the perfect recipe that even kids will love.
Salmon-and-Corn Chowder May not sound like something kid-friendly, but it is! Stewart shared a photo of this light and flavorful soup to Instagram today, and it’s packed with flavor. It’s lighter than traditional soups, which kids are sure to enjoy.
“Kids are sure to scoop up this stew,” she captioned the photo.
“It’s packed with chunks of potatoes, flaky salmon and ears of fresh corn cut into rounds,” she added. “A light stock is made with whipped cream and clam juice, and fresh basil is added at the end for extra flavor.”
While the chunks of corn make for an aesthetically pleasing shot, Stewart actually recommends removing them before serving to kids. “For easier, less messy eating, we recommend cutting the kernels off the cob and putting them back in the soup for your little ones,” she wrote in the post.
The recipe, originally published in the September 2017 issue Martha Stewart Living, serves four and only takes 30 minutes from start to finish. Ingredients include butter, onion, mussel stock, Yukon Gold potatoes, skinless salmon fillet, two ears of corn, fresh basil, and more.
To whip up this easy soup, start by melting butter in a skillet and adding onion, clam stock, potatoes, and more. Bring to a boil and simmer until potatoes are tender. Then slice salmon and corn and add to pan until salmon is opaque and corn is crisp and tender. Add basil and other ingredients and serve with oyster crackers or regular Vermont crackers (the crackers you have at home will work too).
While the recipe looks great, some people weren’t so sure it’s really kid-friendly. One person wrote: “This looks delicious and I’ll try to make it for me and hubby. But the way my kids set it up… we’ll just stick with chicken nuggets and chips! Lol❤️.” Another said, “My kid wouldn’t go within 40 feet of that and he eats soil. †
If the kids don’t want to eat it, at least you have an easy dinner recipe for the adults at home! You really can’t go wrong no matter what.
