Vegan Baby Millet, Apricot And Orange Blossom Water Cream Recipe

If you are looking to start including new foods into your baby's diet, whole grains such as millet are a very good idea. Blend cooked millet with apricot and a splash of orange blossom water, and you get a deliciously mellow cream. If out of season, substitute the fresh apricot for an organic un-sulphured dried apricot, soaked in filtered water for a couple of hours. As always for baby food, choose organic ingredients, and do not add any salt or sugar. Please feel free to multiply quantities for as many portions as you would like to make and freeze.

Method

  • If using dried apricots, soak them in a little filtered water for a couple of hours.
  • * To cook millet, place 1 measure dry unhealed millet in a lidded saucepan with 2 measures filtered water. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to low and allow to simmer until all the water has been absorbed. You could maybe serve millet as a gluten-free substitute to couscous, with a vegetable casserole or tajine for the rest of the family, and just put some of the cooked millet aside for the baby.
  • Blend the cooked (cooled) millet, the fresh or dried apricot and orange blossom water until smooth. Add more orange blossom water or some apricot soak water if necessary, to get the right consistency depending on your baby's age.
