Veggie Bread with Hummus

Recipe By Aileen Cox Blundell

Veggie Bread with Hummus Baby Led Feeding Photograph of Bread Stacked. Homemade Baby Food Recipes. Perfect for little hands. Delicious baby weaning recipe. Homemade recipe for babies and toddlers from Aileen Cox Blundell from The Baby Led Feeding Cookbook.

Last weekend I held my very first workshop with The Elbowroom in Dublin. 42 Mommas and Dads turned up along with their adorable little babies who helped calm my nerves with their total cuteness.  I got to talk to and meet so many wonderful people and especially those who have been part of Baby Led Feeding from the start. It was so great to finally put faces to the names I had talked to for so long.

When I was a child my mother caught me many times giving a running commentary as I cooked dinner or even as I just peeled potatoes and so it was kind of surreal to be cooking live in front of so many people. With the help of my lovely friend Emily from Natural Birth we managed to give everyone including babies tasters and it all went amazingly well.

This recipe was the most successful of the day and so I wanted to share it with the world as it is all kinds of good. It contains only great ingredients for your little babies and when paired with a yummy hummus it makes a perfect lunch. This bread is absolutely loaded with vitamins and minerals as it contains so many nutritious vegetables from broccoli and cauliflower to spinach and parsley.

Spelt is a whole grain flour and one of the healthiest flours you can eat. It is also rich in vitamins and minerals and has a mild nutty flavour. It does contain gluten but has less than wheat or white flours. If you or your baby are gluten free substitute for buckwheat flour which I have also used in this recipe and it is just as good.

The bread when cooked is soft and doughy like bread should be and babies love it! Ever since Oscar was starting weaning he loved dipping foods into sauces so this goes really well with a veggie hummus. Hummus takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and is so delicious that you will never buy the store bought kinds again.

I would love to hear what you think of this recipe and if you make it post up a photo on our Facebook page.

Happy happy Thursday.

Ingredients

70g Spinach
180g Cauliflower
180g Broccoli
2 small carrots
Small bunch parsley
200g spelt flour
1tsp baking soda
3 eggs
Pepper

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC
  2. Add the spinach, cauliflower, broccoli, carrot and parsley to a food processor and pulse until they resemble breadcrumbs. (You may have to do this in batches if you have a tiny food processor)
  3. Pour all the ingredients into a large bowl then add the flour, baking soda, eggs and pepper and stir until they are totally combined.
  4. Turn onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for about 25 minutes or until it has set.
  5. Allow it to cool fully then flip over and peel off the paper. Cut into veggie sticks.

Recipe Notes

I cut the bread into little bite sized pieces, perfect for little weaning babies, then pop into a freezer bag using a sheet of parchment paper to layer them and prevent sticking. They defrost really quick and can be eaten warm (which I prefer) or cold. i just warm in an oven.

Would wheat flour work just as well?
