I know I have been posting a lot about BABY FOOD lately- but that is a big part of my life right now. And it is a part that I am definitely enjoying!
My little girl's favorite meal right now comes straight from our garden...
HOW COOL IS THAT?
Yellow Squash (Crooked Neck Squash)
I pick it straight from my garden, chop it up into bite sized pieces and steam the vegetables until very tender. My little girl loves this squash as a finger food, but her favorite way to eat this yummy vegetable is pureed with HOMEMADE BROWN RICE CEREAL. Tonight I added ground Lentils to her rice cereal and she LOVED IT!
Here is a double batch recipe:
1/2 cup organic brown rice
1/4 cup brown lentils
Grind these whole grains until very fine.
Mix into 2 1/4 cups boiling water- simmer on LOW covered for 10 minutes.
Add steamed squash to a serving of the cereal and puree until smooth. Mix-in 1 tsp of ground flax seed and serve.
I love feeding my little one healthy whole foods...especially when they come straight from my garden!
LIFE IS GOOD!
