Peach, Raspberry and Quinoa Purée

Peach, Raspberry and Quinoa Purée

It’s never too early to introduce superfoods like quinoa to your baby’s diet once they start solids. The seed is the base for this easily digestible, fruity puree. Peach and raspberry add sweetness and tang for a complete range of flavor.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons white quinoa
  • ¼ cup (60ml) water
  • ½ (75g) medium peach, peeled and sliced
  • ½ cup (60g) raspberries, fresh or frozen

Preparation

  1. Add the quinoa and water to the Anyday dish and mix well. Cover with lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave at Power Level 7

    Certain foods cook best in the microwave at lower power levels. 

    Different microwaves have different settings. See your microwave manual (or look it up online) to learn how to change your microwave’s power level.

    For many microwaves: enter the cook time, press the “Power” (or “Power Level”) button, and select a number between 1-10. Other microwaves may require selecting the Power Level first, and then entering the cook time.

    Microwaves list power levels in different ways. Here’s a guide to help you adjust:

    PL 10 = 100% = High (default)

    PL 9 = 90% = High

    PL 8 = 80% = Med-High

    PL 7 = 70% = Med-High

    PL 6 = 60% = Medium

    PL 5 = 50% = Medium

    PL 4 = 40% = Med-Low

    PL 3 = 30% = Med-Low

    PL 2 = 20% = Low

    PL 1 = 10% = Low

    You will know if the power level has been successfully changed if you hear periodic changes in the microwave’s tone after it begins cooking.

    for 10 minutes, or until quinoa is nearly cooked through.
  3. Add the peach and raspberries. Cover and cook on Power Level 7

    for 3 minute, or until the peaches are tender when pierced with a fork. Let cool for 2 minutes with the lid still on.
  4. Using an immersion blender or blender, puree until mixture is as chunky or smooth as you like.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Adjust the power level by 1 as needed — increase if it’s taking longer than expected, or decrease if it’s bubbling over. 
  • Feed just as a puree on its own, or mix it with some cooked rice or other grains if you’re starting on chunky foods. 
  • Also great served with chunks of fish, chicken, or turkey.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
