Homemade BROWN RICE Baby Food Porridge
1 cup water
1/4 cup organic brown rice OR 3 TBS millet (Have fun combining them as well)
Place water in a small pan and place over high heat to boil. While the water is heating, measure grains and place in coffee grinder (extra fine setting or grind for about 1 minute). This fine grinding is necessary for your beginning eater. If you baby is a little older and eating chunkier food, you may grind for less time.
Once the water begins to boil on the stove, turn the heat down to the lowest setting. Sprinkle the ground grain into the water while stirring with a whisk. Cover the pot and keep it over low heat for about 10 minutes.
You may want to stir the rice a few times during the 10 minutes to prevent it from scorching on the bottom.
This recipe makes a little more than 1 cup of porridge/cereal. You can refrigerate it up to 2 -3 days. I make a double batch so I always have some on hand.
