The end result was a health, dark green puree full of vitamin, mineral, and amino acids with just a touch of texture. Earth gobbles it up (as he does most food) and I hope your baby will too!
Swiss Chard and Quinoa Baby Food
4-5 Swiss chard leaves; cleaned, veins removed and coarsely chopped
3 cups cooked quinoa (made from 1 cup dry quinoa), prepared with water (you can use broth for a richer flavor if you want)
Bring a dutch oven full of gently salted water to a boil while you cut the red veins out of the Swiss chard (these can be save for another recipe if you choose) and chop the leaves:
When the water reaches a rolling boil, add the leaves and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes
Strain the leaves and save the cooking water
Add the leaves and quinoa to a blender or food purifier and blend, thinning with the cooking water as needed.
I use ice cube trays to make individual servings and this recipe made three tray's worth of food
Earth is eating two to three cubes of food at each meal. We thaw them gently in the microwave and use crushed ice to cool them (because there's five seconds difference between cold and nuclear when you're microwaving baby food!).
