It is safe to say this is one of our go to recipes at home. It never disappoints and is really versatile making a great breakfast, lunch or dinner dish.
Kedgeree is traditionally a breakfast dish made with rice, eggs and smoked haddock. We substitute the rice for bulgur wheat which is more nutritionally fence than rice and lower in carbs. You can also use quinoa or a 50/50 mix of bulgur wheat and quinoa. As haddock is off the sustainable fish list we are currently using smokes cod instead - but any smoked white fish will do the job.

So this week is a bit of a milestone in our household. Little E is being tested at school to see how well she knows her phonics. This is the first time one of the kids has been 'tested' and we've feeling a lot of pressure from the school to make sure she passes.
For those of you who haven't had the (dis)pleasure of encountering phonics yet I'll briefly outline how it works. Children are taught to read by recognising individual phonemes. A phoneme is a unit of sound which distinguishes one word from another. For example, the difference between the words kiss and kill is the end phoneme. They children learn rhymes to help them remember the sounds for each letter of the alphabet and then begin blending them together to make a words. It starts off simple and gets increasingly more complicated as different rules and exceptions are applied such as split-digraphs and tricky words. The phonics test is a national test for children in Year 1 to check they recognise and understand the key phonics rules.
