Creative recipes for kids with winter vegetables

I like to try new recipes, so does my older son Paul. This time, yesterday, we tried a very original meatballs recipe with chicken, leeks, mushrooms and a bit of fresh ginger. Very simple: you mince in a blender half a leek, 5 fresh mushrooms, a small piece (1/4 inch) of fresh ginger and mix that with 7oz of ground chicken, 1 tbsp of flour and 1/2 egg. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and shape in flat circles and fry them until nicely brown in a tbsp of olive oil.
Serve this with rice and soy sauce... delicious and your kids may say, like mine, " Mom, I didn't know I liked leeks that much". You feel so good, then !
