Trial size chickpea garbanzo bean recipe.
  • 5 chickpeas AKA garbanzo beans (from a can is fine)
  • rice cereal and breast milk/water/formula to desired textured
  1. OK, so I know the ingredients are a little vague, but that's the glory of making your own baby food. You don't have to be precise in measurements.
  2. Start with the chickpeas...If you're using canned all you have to do is strain about 5 or 6 chickpeas and then soak in hot water.
  3. I allowed mine to soak for about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Strain.
  5. Mash with a fork to a fine texture.
  6. Add the rice cereal and mash more.
  7. Add breast milk or water (baby safe) to desired creamy texture.
  8. Remember when introducing your baby to new foods (like this) that you'll need to allow a few days between the next "new food" for signs of allergies (although uncommon in garbanzo beans).

Now that we have a 6 month old in the house, we’ve started to experiment with making our own baby food! Here’s how you too can sample a chickpea baby food recipe without making an entire batch. see recipe
