The newest Gourmet Baby Food Creation is…. Risotto with Butternut Squash! 🙂
Butternut squash is rich in vitamin A, then combined with cooked rice, and vegetables and you a nice and soft, yet chunky combination of textures for a delicious baby food for your little one.
I sauteed chopped onion in a bit of butter until soft, then stirred in brown basmati rice until it was well coated. I poured over vegetable broth, covered it, and let cook for 8 minutes over a high heat. I then stirred in peeled and diced butternut squash, reduced the heat, covered, and cooked for about 12 minutes until the vegetable broth was absorbed.
Meanwhile , I melted a bit of butter in a saucepan, added the chopped and skinned tomatoes, and sauteed for 2-3 minutes. I then stirred in grated cheddar cheese until it was melted. I added the cheese and tomato mixture to the cooked rice and combined them. Yummy!!
