Making your own homemade Brown Rice Puree couldn’t be simpler! And, using Mahatma® Organic Brown Rice mixed with your choice of organic apple juice or water, you can enjoy all the natural benefits of feeding your family real ingredients.
Rinse rice. (soak rice 2-8 hours, if desired)
Combine rice and water in a small heavy bottom stainless steel pot.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 45 minutes. (reduce cook time to 20 minutes if using soaked rice)
Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.
Puree with a hand blender or food processor until smooth.
Serve warm or cold.
If Puree is too thick it can be thinned with water, juice, breast milk or formula.
Rice Puree can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 3 days. You can also portion into an ice cube tray or muffin pan and freeze. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month. Allow to thaw in the refrigerator.
Trying your hand at preparing a homemade version of your favorite rice puree? This recipe, with just two ingredients, is tasty and easy to prepare for all ages to enjoy, especially those little ones who may just be starting out with solid foods.
In fact, serving brown rice to children is a recommended first food, so you can rest assured you’re making a great choice to blend up a meal packed with natural vitamins and minerals.
This easy-to-make puree uses just two pantry ingredients you may already have stocked up, so no need to make an extra grocery run. First, you’ll need good quality rice like Mahatma® Organic Brown Rice, but Whole Grain Brown Rice will work just fine as well. If you’re making this recipe for your little ones, you can always save some of the rice to make an adult Brown Rice Enchiladas Bake or an Easy Mexican Rice, maybe even a nice Vegetable Paella as well.
Second, you’ll need your favorite choice of organic juice like apple juice. If you don’t have juice, you can always add in blended applesauce or make this into a Fruit and Rice puree.
If you want to mix things up, you can add a bit of yogurt or cinnamon to the mix as well, depending on preference.
