Thursday’s Dish Guest Post: Baby Food

This week’s post is brought to you by The Baby Kitchen, a local company that creates fresh, healthy, and delicious food for Austin babies. Noelle Newby and Kelly Grant started the company in 2010 with the goal to make pure food with no thickening agents,  salt, or preservatives.  Only the best for your little one!

The Baby Kitchen is the perfect solution, providing not just sustenance for kiddos, but preparing healthy flavor palates as well.  Sure, they have peas. And pears.  And apples.  All the basics to get babies started, but they also have sweet potato-kale, mango-avocado, and a delicious apple cinnamon-oatmeal. It’s so good, you can mix it in your own oatmeal for an adult breakfast!  They keep the seasons in mind and have some seasonal offerings as well. And did I mention delivery? Austin parents don’t even have to leave their homes.  With a click of a button, they come to your door.

Austin mamas, check them out! If you are looking for a new recipe to try out on your wee one, whip up the one below!

Carrot, Cauliflower and Quinoa

Ingredients

1 large bunch carrots

1 large bunch cauliflower

3/4 cup of quinoa
AdvertisementPurified water

Scrub all veggies with a scrub brush and soak for 2 minutes in a water/vinegar bath to disinfect. (2-3 tablespoons of vinegar should do the trick).

Peel and chop carrots. Chop cauliflower. Steam both in a steamer using the purified water. Steam until the veggies pierce easily with a fork. Cook quinoa according to directions. Place all items together in your food processor/blender/ Vitamix to puree. Add some of the left over water from steaming and puree all until you reach your desired consistency.

Once pureed feed immediately to your baby or freeze. To freeze, spoon into ice cube trays, cover with foil, and freeze. Smaller portions allows you to customize portions to your baby’s needs. You can thaw in your refrigerator. If you want to serve warm you can warm in small pot on stove using low heat.

Food will keep in your refrigerator fresh for up to 4 days or you can freeze for up to 6 months. Remember to always put the portion you are going to feed your baby in it’s own container to serve your baby and never save what’s left out of your serving dish.

  1. I am all over this! I have desperately been trying to keep up with making my own food, but my guy can EAT and life is crazy hectic right now. This is a great alternative and a healthy one as well! Thanks for the info!
