Now that we're graduating from smooth purees and unto more chunky food I can become more creative.
I made him rice pudding for dinner tonight and he savored every spoonful.
Here's the recipe:
Rice pudding for baby
- 1/2 cup calrose rice (short grain)
- 2 cups water
- 1/4 cup apples thinly sliced or cut in slivers
- 1/4 cup golden raisins
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp bottled ginger
Combine all of the above ingredients in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook for 30 minutes or until rice is super soft, fragrant and a bit soupy. Keep a close watch to make sure the consistency is not too thick. Add water when necessary.
Serve warm or room temperature.
I made a big batch and froze the rest in ice cube trays.
