This dish's delightful composition makes it a sure-fire hit for children. They won't even realize they're eating a good source of vegetables and muscle-building protein.

If your child has a picky palette, replace the chorizo with more mild pepperoni.

Ingredients
6
medium potatoes (peeled)
cup
¼ cup
butter (cubed)
8 leaves
Swiss chard (washed)
1.333 cups
frozen peas
2 slices
Chorizo (quartered)

Preparation steps

1.

Put the potatoes in a pan of cold, salted water and bring to the boil. Cook the potatoes for 14 minutes or until a skewer inserted slips in easily to the centers.

2.
While the potatoes are cooking, blanch the chard leaves in boiling water for 2 minutes then remove with tongs and set aside.
3.
Add the peas to the pan and boil for 4 minutes, then drain.
4.
Put the saucepan back on the heat, add the milk and butter and bring to a simmer. Cut 2 of the potatoes in half and reserve, then add the rest of the potatoes to the pan. Take the pan off the heat and mash with a potato masher until smooth, then season to taste with salt and pepper.
5.
Add 2 chard leaves to each plate and top with half a potato. Spoon the mashed potato into a piping bag fitted with a large plain nozzle and pipe 8 tentacles onto each potato body.
6.
Stud each octopus with peas and use chorizo quarters to make the eyes.
