Foods being introduced this week: Brown Rice Couscous & White Potatoes
Breakfast: Baked Apples & Nutmeg Couscous
I baked diced apples in the oven and used brown rice couscous, since MJ has not been introduced to wheat yet and cooked it in the apple "broth" from the baked apples and a couple pinches of nutmeg.
|Baked diced apples drained|
|Baked apples and couscous sprinkled with cinnamon|
Lunch: Curried Chickpeas in Coconut Milk & Brown Rice
Recipe via The Vegan Stoner
Substitutions: Canned coconut milk instead of coconut yogurt
|Chopped green peppers and shredded carrots|
|Added to drained chickpeas and a can of coconut milk.|
|Add 1/2 tbsp of curry paste (or powder) and cook until chickpeas soft.|
Dinner: "Caldo Verde" (Kale and Potato Soup)
Substitutions: I used vegetable broth instead of water and the taste is so deep and flavorful I think it really made the difference.
|Saute garlic, onions, diced potatoes.|
|Add 8 cups of vegetable broth & chopped parsley. Simmer until potatoes are soft||.|
|Either mash or blend potatoes in (immersion blender would make this super easy)|
|Pureed kale for baby.|
|Cook for 10 more minutes|
Dessert!: Raspberry Banana Raw "Ice Cream"
This literally only needs one picture because it is such a simple recipe. Throw some frozen raspberries into the food processor with 2 tbsp of coconut milk when it looks like sorbet add a cup of frozen sliced bananas. Voila.
|So delicious. Must restrain myself from gobbling it all up.|
