Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine split peas and carrots in a small saucepan and add water to cover by about 2 inches. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer until peas are tender, about 30 minutes. Add additional water as needed so that peas don't stick to the bottom of the pan.

  • Add rice and 2/3 cup water to the saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until rice is tender, about 12 minutes.

  • Remove from heat and add olive oil. Mash or puree to your desired consistency, making it smoother for younger babies or perhaps chunkier for older babies.
