Veteran – Baby Food Recipe- Yellow Squash

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…


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!
