If you are tired to cooking pasta for your family every night, you have come to right place. French food that your kids will eat (without complaining) may sound like a fantasy, but actually there are plenty of recipes that should please both parents and children alike.
Putting this list together, I tried to pick a variety of dinner ideas that are easy to make as well as ones that will let you travel a bit to the different regions of France. A voyage for the tastebuds, if you will.
And of course, the recipes have to be relatively easy to put together, without having to stand over the stove for 3 hours. After all, parents in France work just as late as parents elsewhere around the world (the French 35-hour workweek is a myth) and need quick and easy meals too. Most working families don’t have a parent who is a Michelin-starred chef!
But as tired as we all are, nobody wants to cater to a pint-sized picky eater either. So with that being said, here are some French recipes that kids will happily eat (and so will the adults!)
Travel to the French alps with the classic Gratin Dauphinois recipe involving cheese, potatoes, and cream. No child is going to turn that down. But to make Mom and Dad happy, why not add some spinach for a dish the whole family will love.
From the French region of Occitanie, this dish used to take over 24 hours of cooking to make. For working families however, meet the French cassoulet in the Instant Pot. Toss in the meat and beans, and before you know it, dinner is ready!
The typical Quiche Lorraine (from the region of Lorraine) includes bacon and mushrooms, but if you want to get a good serving of spinach in those little bellies, why not try a spinach and cheese quiche?
