Protein Packed Meal for Baby

This meal is yummy for anyone, and really great for babies and toddlers.
If you are making this for a baby, just make sure they have had all of these things before.  If not you might want to leave something out.  This meal is not vegan because I used a little cheese, but you could easily leave that out or use dairy free cheese.  I like Daiya cheese.

So, the red lentils in this dish are a perfect protein.  Plus, broccoli has protein and lots of vitamins along with the mushrooms that boost immune system.  Overall yummy healthy meal!

It's really easy to make too, and can be adjust easily to make more.  I just made a small amount for us to have lunch.  There were red lentils left over when we were done.

1 cup red lentils
1/4 cup frozen chopped broccoli
1/4 of a red onion diced
1 garlic clove minced
2 button mushrooms diced
1 tomato diced
1 tsp oregano
1tsp thyme
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp vegan butter
2 tbl sharp cheddar cheese


Make red lentils according to directions
While that is cooking dice and mince your onion and garlic.
Turn a skillet on medium low with about a teaspoon of evoo
once hot add your onion and garlic.
Dice your mushroom and tomato.
Let the garlic cook for a few minutes then add your mushroom.
Get your broccoli steaming at this point.
Add the tomato to the mushroom mix
Add the oregano and thyme and little salt and pepper as well
Check your lentils, they're are done when most of the water is absorbed. Turn them off when done.
Add the tsp of butter and cheese to lentils if you like, and a little salt and pepper
Plate the lentils and top with mushroom, tomato mix.
Dice up the broccoli for little mouths and your all set!!

My daughter happily ate every yummy bite, and wanted seconds!
It was delish, I had some too!

She ate so good, I gave her some of these after. They're great for those crazy times you just need something to occupy your little one.  Organic and made of fruits and veggies!

Notice the leg on the table! Haha she's so cute
