A Quick, Simple Budget Meal for Kids…

Marmite

…and no reason why adults wouldn’t enjoy it too!

 

This started as ‘spaghetti and marmite’

 

cooked spaghetti, a good serving for 2 (this is for 3 small children)

 

40g butter

 

1 tsp marmite

 

Mix together and serve!

 

Though I wasn’t altogether happy with the butter, I can see that it is needed to ‘soften’ the taste of the marmite! I have experimented with spread cheese mixed with a little milk, but this wasn’t ideal. Then I came up with a new idea:

 

cooked spaghetti, a good serving for 2 (this is for 3 small children) pasta also works well

 

1 tsp marmite

 

plain yogurt

add the marmite to the pan you have cooked the spaghetti in, leave for a minute or two to melt the marmite. Then stir in 2-3 spoons of yogurt, add the spaghetti and serve with a little grated cheese.

This was a big hit for tea and was gone within five minutes and asking for seconds.

As well as yeast extract, marmite contains vegetable extract, salt, niacin, thiamin, spice extracts, folic acid, riboflavin, celery extract and vitamin B12. It contains 9 calories in a 4-g serving. Marmite is very low in sugar, low in calories, contains no saturated fat and is completely vegetarian.

So I would far rather serve this to my children than tinned spaghetti as a quick meal. I am not a big fan of marmite myself, but with the right amount of yogurt even I could eat it!
