Lentil, Spinach And Rice Baby Puree
Homemade lentil, spinach and rice baby food recipe for Little Mashies reusable food pouches
Lentils are excellent choice for baby food for they are creamy, tasty and very healthy. They are rich in protein, iron and fiber and are often overlooked when it comes to preparing healthy home made baby food. Lentils can be used in so many different ways!
1 cup of lentils (soaked overnight)
1 cup of rice (200g)
3-4 cups of home made stock or water
2 cup of spinach
Step 1: In a large deep skillet, over medium heat, combine the lentils and rice and cook for about 15 minutes. Add stock or water to keep mixture moist whilst cooking.
Step 2: Add in spinach and cook for a further 5 minutes. Then drain the liquid off keeping a little to the side for the blending process.
Step 3: Puree the spinach, lentils and rice in a food processor or blender, using a little of the cooking liquid to get a desired smooth consistency (4 tablespoons). You can also use breast milk or formula to mix with the puree.
