It’s Back to School week over here at ElizabethMxo.com and we could not wait to share this recipe! I mean, who has time to cook a full dinner every night?! That was a rhetorical question, so if you answered yes, I am already jealous! Nonetheless, it’s okay to cheat a little with this fun, easy recipe that is great for kids and parents to join in together.
One of the best parts of having kids is the opportunity to experience life through their eyes. From learning new things to seeing new sights, it always amazes me to see the excitement and joy in their new discoveries. One of my favorite activities with my girls is to create new games or recipes. On any given night, you may catch us dancing in our pjs and creating new lyrics to different beats or concocting something fun in the kitchen. For some reason, we are convinced we are songwriters and super chefs! Watch out Beyonce and Ayesha Curry!
So naturally we were super pumped when Got Milk? wanted to partner with us to create a new cereal recipe for dinner! Immediately my oldest started naming all of her favorite savory foods: roasted chickpeas, cashews and veggie chips. She is such a snacker! Everything sounded so delicious together, almost like an indian or curry dish so we came up with this savory, dinner time take on the age old cereal and milk: Curry Night Cereal Delight. We mixed all of her favorite savory snacks with a curry infused milk and voila!
This recipe is super quick and easy and a yummy option when there is no time to make a traditional dinner. Bonus, my oldest was great at layering all of her favorites in the bowl! But watch out for little hands trying to eat all the ingredients! Clearly my youngest is a snacker too!
Curry Night Cereal Delight
1/2 cup Rice Krispies
1/4 cup Dried Veggie Chips
1/4 cup Cashews chopped
1/4 cup Chickpeas roasted (or in the bag)
1 tsp Red Curry Paste
1 tsp Butter
1 cup Milk
Chop or break veggie chips into smaller pieces. Begin layering Rice Krispies, veggie chips, cashews and chickpeas in a bowl.
In a saucepan, melt butter. Slowly add milk then curry paste. Mix slowly until dissolved. Let curry milk cool to warm. Separation is natural as it cools. Simply mix again then pour over cereal mixture into bowl.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
