I am so excited to have Selvarani from Happy Women’s Book join us for Day 5! She is bringing us a super adaptable dish that is great for brunch, and well, any time! The best part about this recipe? You can use the ingredients in different ways, for different meals. How great is that! Read on for her recipe for Money Bags!
Vegetable Pouch/Money Bags is a healthy dish which is loaded with variety of veggies and it is perfect for brunch.When i saw Raina’s post about ‘Brunch Guest Blog Posts’ in Food Bloggers Facebook page,immediately i added my name with a thought of this vegetable pouch.Thank You Raina..!
My Little Prince started schooling, so I have to send brunch recipes for a late morning meal. Its a very big challenge to satisfy kids tastebud because if they see one of the ingredients they dislike, they immediately say “No” to the whole dish without tasting it…Every day i ask him for his favorite dishes,veggies & fruits for salads and prepare it, and have it packed up with a little creativity to attract his taste buds. He is a very naughty prince, and I haven’t seen a kid like him before, but I am excited to watch him learn and grow. Kids always know the tricks to get down mom’s anger with their cute smile. This one makes him smile, and I prepare this recipe often!
You can serve this Veg Pouch for kids breakfast / dinner.
