My 2yr old daughter is a wee bit finicky about what she eats but these were a HUGE hit and it really was a pleasure to see her inhale them with cherry tomatoes! The 2nd time I tried it, I mixed in some curry powder which gave it a nice little spicy kick.

Made this a couple of times now, it so easy. I made it with the spinich and tomato salad they reccomended in the september good food, it went so well with it, I did subsitute a tsp of sherry vinegar for a tsp of lemon oil, bought at the good food show!! It worked wonderfully, sort of a sweet and sour taste. yum!

Really easy to make and very tasty. Crsipy on the outside and soft on the inside. Had ours for lunch with salad.
