Serves 2-4

  • 1/2 cup of organic broccoli florets

  • 1/2 cup of organic risini pasta; which means little seed is rice-like, similar to orzo

  • 1 cup of homemade broth/water

  • 1 tbsp of shredded organic cheddar or any hard cheese*

Place the risini, broccoli and homemade broth/water in a pot and bring to boil before turning down the heat to a medium-low heat and simmer. Cook for approximately 6-10 minutes or until the risini has fully absorbed the broth/water and the broccoli is soft and tender. Transfer everything to a bowl and top it off with the cheese.

* It is usually recommended that cheese is to be introduced to babies with no known/suspected dairy allergy between 8-10 months of age. If your baby has known/suspected dairy allergies, you may want to wait till s/he is a little older & always consult your pediatrician.

The "safest" types of cheeses are Cottage cheese, ricotta, cream cheese, and hard cheeses like cheddar and parmesan. Buy organic cheese to make sure that the cows were not given antibiotics, hormones or pesticide-treated feed. And buy always full fat as they need fat & fatty acids for brain development amongst other things. I personally would avoid processed cheese, e.g American cheese as they contain addictives and preservatives.
