Mother’s day is a great time to spend the day cooking or baking. Radar has written up some recipes to show the best recipes a Mother could teach you. Learning to cook from your Mother is a life-long skill and generations of families tend to pass on cooking recipes. Here are some of our favourite recipes: 

 

Recipe 1: Watercress and Spinach Soup

Ingredients: 

• Spinach

• Watercress

• 1 Onion

• 1 Large Potato

• 2 Stock Cubes – chicken or vegetable

• Oil

2. Add milk until the mixture drops off the spoon easily.

3. Heat a frying pan and grease the pan with butter.

4. Spoon the mixture into circles to make the desired size of pancake.

5. When bubbles start to appear, this is when it’s time to flip the pancake.

6. Cook until golden brown and leave to cool.

7. Enjoy with butter, syrup, Nutella, or any other toppings. Good luck recreating these recipes and make sure to spend your time with family and friends on Mother’s day.
