Thrifty Recipe- Turkey, Rice, and Apple Baby Food

We have quite a bit of leftover turkey from the recipe (posted here on my blog) I made this week. I decided to use some of it to make a new baby food concoction. It turned out well and she liked it! This is also quite thrifty as a Gerber 2nd Foods Turkey Rice dinner is about $1 a jar if you buy a 12-pak. I got an entire 5.5 pound turkey breast for $5.

Turkey/Rice/Apple Baby Food
  • Take leftover cooked turkey, break into chunks, and place in food processor bowl
  • Add cooked rice, brown or white, I used jasmine
  • Put in some applesauce. I'll bet it would also be good with sweet potato or even pears.
  • Turn on food processor and let it run until you don't see individual grains of rice, then drizzle in a little water until the mixture turns into a paste-like consistency, right for your baby
  • Store covered in the fridge for a day or two or freeze in individual servings
