Porridge was on Angela’s weekly menu when she was a baby and she thoroughly loved it . It is one of the dishes that you can throw almost any kind of vegetables (or protein) in and still end up with a pretty decent, healthy and light meal for your baby / toddler. And if you eat rice a lot like we do and often have some leftover rice that you do not know what you are going to do with, then this pumpkin porridge will definitely help you reduce some food waste.
This pumpkin porridge recipe is for toddler but it is easily modified to become a baby food recipe. In stead of mashing the steamed pumpkin and add to the soup, you can add pumpkin chunks directly to the soup, cook it through and give the whole thing a quick blend until your desired consistency. And you can skip the salt and pepper all together if it is for a baby. Voila. A Vitamin-A-rich flavorful and vibrant soup is ready for your little one to enjoy.
Beware that the soup tends to be really hot off the pan so make sure you check its temperature before giving it to your little one (especially one that would like to self-feed) to avoid burn.
