Veteran – Baby Food Recipe- GREENS

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


Whole Grain Porridge (see recipes here and here– I will be adding more soon.)

Steamed broccoli


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.
