Brown rice powder: 1 cup of uncooked brown rice grains (you can use whichever kind of rice you prefer). Blend the grains a few at a time in a food processor or blender. If you wish for it to be very fine, use a coffee/herb grinder.
Bring water to boil, then add rice powder, stirring constantly with a whisk. Reduce heat to very low and simmer for 10 mins, stirring frequently.
Add the desired amount of breast milk or formula to get the consistency you desire for your child.
Spinach purée: simply steam some spinach leaves until just softened. You don't want to take all the goodness out of them.
Purée the spinach in a blender or food processor, then add some water to get a nice smooth consistency.
If your baby is old enough, you can spice it up with some garlic or other herbs from your pantry!
You don't have to mix the brown rice and spinach purees, they are each very good on their own.
