I have LOVED hearing your responses about HOMEMADE BABY FOOD- so I am going to keep sharing
Here is another one of my 11 month old's favorite DINNERS: Broccoli & Rice porridge.
I love when I can feed her anything GREEN. This is such a yummy recipe...and it is so quick and easy. I always try to have some Homemade PORRIDGE/CEREAL in my refrigerator...and we eat steamed broccoli at least twice a week. So this recipe doesn't require any planning and it takes SECONDS.
BEFORE the recipe- I thought I needed to add what KITCHEN TOOL I use to mix/puree my baby food:
This is a MINI FOOD PROCESSOR made by Cuisinart and it is the BEST!!! All I do is place my steamed veggies inside- along with my porridge...and GRIND it all together till I have my desired consistency. I purchased this at COSTCO over 4 years ago...and it still works like NEW.
Broccoli & Rice Porridge
Place 3-5 pieces of steamed broccoli in your food processor. Add approx. 1/2 - 3/4 cup whole grain porridge. PUREE together until you reach your desired consistency. Younger children will need to extra smooth- so you can add breastmilk, formula or water to the porridge. My 11 month old can handle small chunks so I puree the mixture for only a few seconds.
