Baby Quinoa Recipe


  1. Wash the quinoa thorough so that any remaining bitterness can be washed away. it needs a thorough rinse in running water or soaked in water. Rub the seeds in both your hands during the rinsing process.
  1. Peel the apples and the pear optional though. I don’t because the peel contains a lot of nutrients and my son is old enough to tolerate it.
  1. Boil the quinoa with 2 cups of water and add the chopped apples and raisins all together and cook till the quinoa is done. Add 3 cups of water if you want to thin it out.
  2. Purée the mixture with the ripe pear and add a little oil and serve. Thin it out with its own boil water. You can also serve it as it is if your baby chews well it’s up to you.

❄️Freezable and serves 3 portions.

Tip: I thinned the purée out with its own boil water and served it as a smoothie to my toddler was obsessed!
