Homemade Brown Rice and Quinoa Baby FoodHomemade Brown Rice and Quinoa Baby Food is fun and easy to make – and packs a huge punch for your little one as they begin solid food. You can also make this first food recipe in a rice cooker in bulk and freeze individual spoonfuls in ice cube trays. Once froze, pop the cubes out and keep them together in a big labelled ziplock bag.  Just make sure when you thaw in the microwave that there are no hot spots.


½ cup brown rice
½ cup quinoa
2 cups purified water or organic free-range chicken stock
1 jar (4 ounces) organic meat baby food, any flavour


Put the rice, quinoa, and water or stock in a small pan
Bring to a boil over medium heat
Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 40 to 50 minutes, until the water is absorbed
Fluff with a fork and add the baby food

Cool before serving

Variation: Add peas, other soft cooked vegetables, or fruit
