5 stars (1 rating)
This Quinoa, Apple, Pear with Raisins Baby Food Puree is high in protein, good source of vitamins and minerals, antioxidants and high fiber content which acts as a natural laxative.


  • 1 cup red quinoa
  • 2 sweet apples
  • 3 ripe pears
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 cups water


  • Wash the quinoa thoroughly so that any remaining bitterness will be washed away. Place the quinoa in a fine mesh colander and rinse in running water or soak in water and then drain. Rub the seeds with both of your hands during the rinsing process.
  • Peel the apples and the pear (optional). I didn’t peel my fruit because the peel contains a lot of nutrients and my son is old enough to tolerate it.
  • In a medium saucepan, boil the quinoa with 2 cups of water. Reduce to a simmer and add the chopped apples and raisins, cook for 20 minute or until the quinoa is done. If thinning out for a smoothie, add an additional 3 cups of water to the saucepan.
  • Purée the mixture, adding in the ripe pear. Optional, to add a little olive oil to the puree for some added healthy fat. You can also serve it as it is if your baby chews well, it’s up to you.
