Super Food for Babies
1/4 cup quinoa, rinsed
1 cup broccoli, cut in medium-sized pieces
1 cup zucchini, cut in chunks
A small handful of parsley
4 cups organic low-sodium chicken stock or water
1. In a medium-sized pan, mix all the ingredients together and slowly bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook partially covered 30-40 minutes.
2. Puree in a blender or food processor. For tiny babies, pass the mixture through a sieve to be sure it is extra smooth. For older babies, depending on their age and development, leave it chunkier, instead of blending.
