Delicious Springtime Spreads for Children

Spreads made in early spring from fresh ingredients are known for being yummy and healthy. Home-made spreads will give your children vitamins and protein and you can always be sure that they’re fresh and healthy without preservatives and stabilizers.

Wild garlic spread

Pick wild garlic before it begins to grow flowers.

The season to pick wild garlic is from March until May. Pick its leaves but make sure that the plant hasn’t begun to grow flowers yet. Drying the plant will cause it to lose its medicinal properties, so you should always consume it while it’s fresh. The plant’s leaves closely resemble another plant – lily of the valley. They help cleanse the kidneys, prevent the blocking of arteries, and relieve breathing difficulties. If your children don’t like to eat wild garlic itself on a piece of bread, you can prepare a yummy spread for them.

Ingredients:

  • 15 pcs of wild garlic
  • 1 bundle of scallions
  • 1 pc of unflavoured tofu
  • lemon
  • salt
  • ground black pepper

Instructions:

Chop the wild garlic leaves and scallion greens into larger pieces. Mix them in a blender together with the tofu and some melted butter. Flavour the mix with some lemon juice, ground black pepper, and salt. The spread is finished and ready to eat with some bread.

Scallion and curd spread
