** for some reason i have become famous for this recipe on the essential baby website. actually it's not my recipe, it came from Georgia, an online friend :) i haven't even made it all that much as g isn't all that keen on it lOL now that we have the thermomix it's quicker to use that on a work day (20 mins cooking compared to 40). but i thought i'd add it in here for posterity and to see if it gets any new fans LOL
