Great Gluten Free Baby Food - Spinach and Herb Quinoa

Published 15 September, 2006

Unfortunately for the husband and I, tonights tea was only good for baby food. Luckily baby loved it and scoffed more than is healthy for one so small. I find quinoa tricky to cook properly - tonight I cooked it in far too much water and let it sit to "absorb", but all that happened is it got really really mushy. Ah well, you live and learn. (Last time I made quinoa I did it like a risotto and it worked really well).

So here's tonight's gluten free recipe;

Saute chopped onion and garlic for 5 mins. Wash some quinoa and boil it in water for 15 mins - DO NOT let it stand! Wash and throw a load of spinach onto the onion and garlic and let it wilt for 2 mins or so. Meanwhile, chop a load of fresh herbs (mint, basil and parsley). Mix everything together and serve with roast chicken and salad leaves.

To make this into yummy gluten free baby food just blend a small portion and don't be put off by the bright green colour.

I hope I have better luck with the quinoa next time!
