Spinach Mushroom Pasta recipe for kids (9 months+)

High Protein Spinach Mushroom Pasta for Kids (9 months+)

This recipe is one of our family favourites and now Noor’s favourite too! It is an extremely healthy recipe – rich in Protein (because of the Cashew Butter) and micronutrients (because of the spinach)! The colour is very vibrant too and attracts kids 🙂

The secret ingredient undoubtedly is the @happyjarsin Cashew Butter which not only helps thicken the spinach puree but also lends a creamy taste to it!

I am a big fan of this Cashew butter and use it generously in our food (to thicken gravies, as a substitute for cream) as well as Noor’s porridges.

Cashews are extremely rich in Zinc which help in boosting immunity & promote hair growth as well.  

She eats this pasta very quickly whenever I offer this to her for lunch/dinner and it’s very healthy also as it is primarily vegetables that she is eating. So, I don’t even mind serving it to her once or twice a week!
