1/2 cup of uncooked quinoa – rinsed
2 carrots – chopped and steamed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
1 level tablespoon almond butter or tahini
1 Yummy Orange Little Inca Pouch
Cook the quinoa (in about 1 ¼ cups of boiling water), allow to bubble for about 15 minutes until cooked.
Place the cooked quinoa in a blender with the carrots, cinnamon, nutmeg and almond butter or tahini. Squeeze in the Yummy Pouch and blend. Add a dash of water, formula or breast milk as needed to get desired consistency.
Any leftovers can be frozen in portion sizes for another time.
Tahini is sesame seed paste. It’s a great food for weaning babies and toddlers, as it’s packed with calcium. Light tahini has a milder flavour, so you may want to start with the light version.
Did you know: Orange vegetables and fruits are packed with beta carotene, the plant form of Vitamin A. Orange coloured plants help to support a healthy immune system, due to the beta carotene, and because they provide food for your baby’s developing gut microbiome.
Serve from a spoon, or with finger foods to dip in.
