Meals Your Little Chef can make! Day 3

Good afternoon fellow bloggers and little chefs! I'm glad to have you all here with me today. I'm going to start this blog out by stating that children love The Wiggles. If you have kids, you should know exactly what I am talking about. If you have never heard of The Wiggles, please Google them. I've never known a child who does not love them. Well, our meal today is based off of The Wiggles. We are calling this dish "The Wiggles Cold Spaghetti". Do our little ones have their handy dandy spoons and aprons? Great! Let's go!

The Wiggles Cold Spaghetti

You will need:

  • 16 ounce pack oriental style rice noodles, spaghetti width
  • 2 grilled chicken breasts, shredded or dices into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons sesame tahini (sesame paste)
  • 4 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons chopped scallions
(OPTIONAL: 3 tablespoons black sesame seeds and 4 tablespoons chopped cilantro)

  1. Cook noodles according to package directions, drain well and pour in large mixing bowl.
  2. Have your child mix the sesame tahini with the soy sauce and add to the noodles while still warm. Set aside to cool.
  3. Chop the cilantro and scallions. 
  4. Set aside with sesame seeds for garnish, if using.
  5. Help your child add the rest of the ingredients, mixing thoroughly with a spoon.
  6. Transfer the well-blended mixture to a serving dish.
  7. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, black sesame seeds, and a pinch of chili powder (if using any of those).
  8. Chill, serve cold, and watch your little one chow down!
NOTE: Parents, you do *NOT* have to chill your spaghetti.

This meal is Wiggles Approved ^_^

There you go! I hope your little chefs had a fun time and I cannot wait until we are all back in the kitchen again together. Enjoy your evening and I will see you all tomorrow!
