Quinoa, the highest-protein grain, is an excellent addition to your repertoire and adds variety to your baby’s diet. Quinoa must be soaked, as in this recipe
PREP TIME: 5 mins, plus overnight soaking
COOK TIME: 40 mins
½ cup quinoa
1 teaspoon plain yogurt or kefir
1 Put the quinoa, yogurt, and 1⅔ cups warm water in a medium saucepan and let soak, covered, for at least 7 hours or overnight.
2 Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer,
covered, for 40 minutes until the quinoa is very tender. If using a blender with a plastic container, let the quinoa cool completely before blending.
3 Transfer the quinoa to a blender and blend for 1 minute until smooth. Serve warm, reheating if necessary.
STORAGE: Refrigerate the cooled purée for up to 3 days or freeze in cubes for up to 3 months.
