Health Highlights


1/2 cup Quinoa, uncooked ((With Gluten try bulgar, spelt kamut, farro) (For GF try oats, rice, millet, amaranth, buckwheat))
1 1/2 cup Water, filtered


STEP 1: Select the grain you want to use and grind it in your food processor, blender, or coffee grinder into a flour. The thinner the flower you make the smother the consistency will be.  Adjust based on your baby's age/preference.  You can make some ahead of time and store in mason jars!

STEP 2: In a saucepan, heat water on medium until it's almost close to a boil.

STEP 3: You are going to make a "slurry" to prevent any clumping.  Slowly pour the water over the flour mixture and whisk constantly until they are combined.  Then transfer the mixture back in the saucepan and place over medium heat until it's cooked.  You'll have to sort constantly for about 5 to 7 minutes

STEP 4: Get creative and add any of your already made purees, spices, herbs or toppings.

*** The amount of water you use will really depend on the grain of choice. For 1/2 cup of grains (powdered), you can expect to use 1.5 cups to 3 cups of water.
