Tuscan White Beans Baby Food from WeeliciousPin

This dish reminds me of something you would have on a cool night in Tuscany. Cannelini beans, also known as white beans have a smooth texture and a nutty flavor. Combined with the brown rice, you have a 
complete protein. I’ve been making the adult version of this dish for years. When you 
make this for babies it becomes a creamy puree that — I’ve found — they can’t stop eating. This is one of those dishes that I crave when I think about 
it. This baby version of it is so quick, inexpensive and easy.
 Whether I soak my own beans or open a can of organic ones, I always put aside a few for Kenya to pick up and feed himself. Since they’re nice 
and mushy, Tuscan White Beans are easy for babies, even with few teeth, to munch on.

  1. This really sounds yummy! My granddaughter is 14 weeks old, but I can hardly wait until she is old enough to eat things like this! I have quite the recipe file going…

  2. Would this work well without the tomato? Or is there something I could substitute? My husband is allergic to tomato, so we are not introducing it until baby is older.

  3. Sounds delish! I want to make this for my 8 month old tonight…the beans are soaking already! Question: Do you need to cook the onions and garlic in the steamer pot? I’ve never steamed onion or garlic. Also, cooking kale that long seems like it would take away a lot of nutrients!

    1. Thanks for your comment! We’ve been going through a website redesign so some of our older recipes have been having some issues after the re-launch. I’ve added the missing instructions for you 🙂
