  • How to make

15g brown rice
15g small green or brown lentils
1 small onion
100g butternut squash 
100g carrots
100g chicken breast
Pinch ground coriander
Pinch ground cumin
Dash of olive oil
Approx. 4 tbsp boiled water

Step 1

Put the rice and the lentils in a sieve and give them a good rinse. Check for stones which are sometimes found in lentils

Step 2

Add the rice and lentils to a pan of boiling water and cook for 25-30 minutes until tender

Step 3

While the rice and lentils are cooking, finely chop the onion, peel and chop the vegetables into small cubes and cut the chicken into small pieces

Step 4

Heat a very small dash of olive oil in a non-stick pan (with a lid) add the onion and sauté until see-through, then add the carrots, squash, chicken, herbs and spices and sauté gently for a couple of minutes

Step 5

Add 3 tablespoons of water, put the lid on the pan and reduce to a low heat. Stir every 5 minutes until the vegetables are soft and the chicken is thoroughly cooked

Step 6

Drain the cooked rice and lentils and add to the cooked vegetables and chicken. Add 1-2 tbsp. of boiled water to the ingredients. Use a fork to mash the ingredients together. For a smoother, first weaning recipe, blend using a hand blender until the desired texture is achieved. Add more boiled water if the texture is too thick
