{Tiny Tot Tuesdays} Homemade Organic Baby Quinoa

Ingredients

  • 1 cup organic quinoa
  • 2 cups of water

Rinse the quinoa very well under cold water. 


Combine the quinoa and water in a pan, and cook according to package directions, adding 2-3 minutes to the cook time to ensure the quinoa is very tender.


Once done, drain the quinoa. Add to a food processor or Baby Bullet and process until smooth. Add extra water to the mixture in order to get it to your desired consistency.


Allow to cool then serve to your baby with a spoon. I recommend adding some breast milk or formula to the cooked cereal as well...this thins out the cereal and adds a flavor they already know and enjoy.

If saving for a later date, pour it into storage cups to freeze or refrigerate. You can refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze for 30 days. Make sure you label your quinoa! Once you are ready to serve, heat the refrigerated or frozen quinoa up in the microwave and allow to cool to just warmer than room temperature. Add breast milk or formula to thin it out, if desired.

*Consult your pediatrician before feeding your baby solid foods and to see what amount/type of food you should give your child.
