Good morning, lovely people! Today we are making a traditional greek dish that my mom used to make often when I was a little child. It is called «maporizo» which means cabbage rice. It is made with white cabbage, onions, carrots, celery and tomato. It is an easy dish that requires few cheap ingredients. I decided to make a modernised version. So I opted for quinoa instead of rice, substituted  tomato and celery for orange juice and rosemary. The result was amazing. We loved it but the most important is that my baby boy literally devoured it! Now that he is 13 months old we often eat the same food. And I have to say that he has taken after me as far food is concerned. For example he is a fruit fan just like his mother! I know that during my pregnancy and breastfeeding (I still breastfeed him!) he is used to eating what I eat. So it is natural that we have the same taste!

So let’s cook a yummy healthy winter meal that the whole family will love! Have a wonderful week, friends! Kisses and hugs!
