Suitable for 9 months onwards

A cornmeal pudding as they like it in Romania (they call it mamaliga) takes the place of bread on the rural table and is always eaten on its own, as a separate course.

Garlic broth works well during cold and flu season. This is a general cure-all and stomach settler for babies and young children throughout the lands of the Mediterranean, thought this particular version is from Provence.

Rice Congee

baby, EAT By November 6, 2006 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

baby food recipe for new babiesTraditionally a dish eaten in China and the rice growing regions of Southeast Asia. Rice Congee, an unseasoned and unsweetened rice pudding is eaten much like a slice of toast – for breakfast and as a filler between meals. Light and digestible, it is the perfect baby food. Grownups eat it hot; for babies let it cool to finger temperature.

Tip: All rice, even the rice labeled “glutinous” is gluten-free, making it non- allergenic. It is also free of extrinsic sugar, the sticky stuff which leads to tooth decay!

Rice Congee

  • ½ cup short grain rice (Thai fragrant is perfect)
  • 2 ½ cups of water

If you have time, soak the rice for 2 hours in plenty of cold water, then drain. If not, no matter.
Put the rice in a roomy pot and add the water (proportions do matter though: for a rice to make pudding, the grains must absorb 4 times their own volume of liquid). Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, loosely cover and simmer gently for a least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until you have a soft soupy pudding. It freezes well – just pop a supply in the ice cube tray and defrost portions as needed.
