Spinach and Ricotta Croquettes with Henri Le Worm

You may remember that a couple of weeks ago we were invited to the press day at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show to see the Henri Le Worm community garden.

The Henri Le Worm App aims to encourage children to engage with nature and their food. There is a section with games where your child can meet Henri and his friends.

There is also a section with some recipes. In order to get big man trying some different foods, I got him to help me make the spinach and ricotta croquettes.

You will need:

100g Spinach
180g Ricotta
6tsp Rapeseed oil
60g grated cheese
2 eggs
150g breadcrumbs
100g wholemeal flour

Wilt the spinach in a small amount of oil and drain off as much liquid as possible.

Liquidise and blend in with the cheese. 

Roll into a ball and coat in flour, egg and breadcrumbs.

Fry until golden brown on each side. Ours turned out more like fritters.

I am pretty sure that if I had served these to big man he would have pushed it around the plate asking questions. As he made them himself he was pleased to try them. It has encouraged me to try some more recipes with him. It is also nice to have the buddy in the kitchen.

We weren't asked to review the app, but we enjoyed this recipes so I thought it would be nice to share.
