Israeli Healthy Baby Mush
This is a popular dish for Israeli babies, as it combines grains (pick the one of your choice—in Israel, it’s usually made with ptitim, or Israeli couscous) and vegetables. If you prefer, add half a cup of red lentils at the very beginning (you’ll need about one-fourth cup extra water), and skip the tahini.
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup quinoa, rice or orzo/Israeli couscous
- ½ sweet potato and/or carrot, grated
- 1 small zucchini, grated
- 1 tablespoon raw tahini
- Combine water, grain of choice and grated veggies in a pot, bring to a boil, cover reduce heat to a simmer and cook until very soft (time will range from 10 to 20 minutes, depending on grain). Add tahini.
