Vegetables & Brown Rice

For 7 months old

1 cup Broccoli florets, washed and discard yellow bits.
1 Medium Carrot - washed, peeled and diced
2 cups Vegetable stock or water
1/3 cup Organic Brown Rice, grind to a finer grains.


  1. In a saucepan, add 2cups of either vegetable stock or water and boil the carrot & broccoli for about 10-15mins. Simmer with the lid on to prevent evaporation of stock.
  2. Once the vegetables are tender, use a slotted spoon to remove the vegetables. Save the stock.
  3. Pour the organic brown rice into the saved stock and cook to a boil. Stir once and reduce heat.
  4. Cover the saucepan and simmer for about 50mins. Once done, remove from heat and let it stand for 10mins. Save the stock again.
  5. Use a hand held blender or food processor, puree rice & vegetables. Add a tablespoon of left over stock at a time to achieve the desired consistency. If you find that the puree is still too thick, you can add more stock.
  6. Pour the puree into the baby cubes or ice cube trays and freeze.

· I pack each baby cube with approx. 60ml of puree for convenience.
· You may double the potion to achieve more.
. I find that it is a lot easier to cook when the rice grains are grinded.
