What’s in the Kid’s Kitchen (recipes for your children)

veggierice
This seems to me a grown up dish but according to my sources older kids really like it, and when I say older I mean ages 8-12+. I really don’t think you’re 2 year old will like it, but I could be wrong. I say this only because of the ginger and garlic in the recipe. Have fun, and let me know how it goes.
