Glazed Brussels Sprouts & Jasmine Rice Recipe: Babies 10 months +

Welcome back to Yummy Yummy Baby!

As promised, here is another recipe that’s Yummy, Easy and Baby-friendly. Great thing is, this recipe is also toddler-approved and something the entire family will enjoy!

I didn’t grow up eating Brussel Sprouts, in fact, I had never seen Brussel Sprouts anytime in my youth.

Our family sure did miss out… Brussel Sprouts are so yummy and packed with Vitamins A, C and K.

Brussel Sprouts are also found to offer Cancer protection because of the Sprouts having a large amount of Glucosinolates.

Next time you want your family to have some cruciferous veggies, give these little Green Gems a try!

Glazed Brussel Sprouts & Jasmine Rice: 

🌱 Ingredients: 🌱
🌱 4 Cups Organic Brussel Sprouts (Serves 4).
🌱 1 Tablespoons Avocado Oil (oil of choice).
🌱 1-2 Tablespoons Coconut Nectar (or any sweet glaze, like agave).
🌱 1 pinch Sea Salt.
🌱 1 Tablespoon Coconut Aminos (Soy Sauce).

🌱👶 Babies 10 months +

🌱 Cook Jasmine Rice according to package.

🌱 Slice & Steam Brussel Sprouts for 5-8 minutes on low to medium heat.

🌱 While steaming Sprouts, add Avocado oil & Coconut Nectar, Sea Salt, Coconut Aminos to a frying pan.

🌱 Sautee & Glaze Sprouts for 5 minutes, then transfer the babies portion of Rice & Brussel Sprouts to Food Processor and blend for 35 seconds.

🍀 Taste and add anything you want.

🍀 Remember babies taste buds are different, what is bland to us is yummy for babies.

🍀 I would only give one small Brussel Sprout to test for allergies and to ensure baby doesn’t have painful gas reaction to sulfur content.

🍀 Make sure to ALWAYS pre-test for allergies for EVERY new food given to a baby or child.

🍀 For older kids and adults, add minced Garlic, Onion, Pepper to the Sautee Pan… Your family is going to love these Yummy Green Gems!

🍓High-speed Blender

🌱11 ounces of Homemade Coconut Milk or 2 cans full-fat Organic Coconut Milk.

🌱After 24-48 hours, it should smell like yogurt. It may be runny, more like kefir than yogurt. If you prefer, leave it out longer.

🌱After 48-72 hours, it should be thick and have a more tangy flavor.
*Store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

🌱Use an oven light to help create more warmth.

🍓If you want a sweeter yogurt, swirl in this Awesome Strawberry Sauce and Bammm! You are in Yummy Food Heaven!

🍓Please remember to use Vegan Probiotics, also remember some thicken better than others. Please experiment.

🍓The homemade coconut milk doesn’t work as well as Canned Coconut milk, but it is healthier and BPA Free.

The more you make this, the better you will get at it! Best of all, you and the kids will get your healthy Probiotics without having to eat all those additives and preservatives from store bought yogurt.

Have fun making this Yummy Yummy treat! Xoxo
