After posting about my search for the perfect rice cooker on my Facebook page, many friends chimed in that they loved their Zojirushi Rice Cooker. I did a quick online search, read some reviews, and ordered one for myself. I have used my rice cooker every day since it arrived – this has certainly been a purchase I will not regret. Last week I tested out different kinds of rice with different seasonings and veggies and all were successful. This week I decided to use my rice cooker to make baby food. So easy! Once again, why buy it when you can make it?
|Add rice, water, and veggies
|Let it cook…
This baby food process was incredibly easy… I measured the rice, chopped up some carrots, poured in the water, and turned on the rice cooker. I wanted to use brown rice and carrots because I thought that might be a good first food combination for the baby. After the rice and carrots were done cooking, I put them in the food processor, added some breast milk to thin it out and let it process until it was the consistency I was looking for. I poured the rice into ice cube trays to make baby sized portions and now I have a freezer bag full of baby-friendly breakfast! Doesn’t this seem more appetizing than adding liquid to some powdered flakes out of a cardboard box?
