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.

Recipe notes:

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.
