Lil Green Baby Food: Soybeans

I love soybeans. They are one of my favorite snack so I thought L would like them too. I picked up a bag of frozen organic soybeans from Whole Foods. To cook, simply pour the entire bag into a pot with enough water to cover the beans and boil for 3 minutes. Drain the water into a separate container but don't throw out. You'll need to add some of the water back to the beans to reach the desired consistency. After you've processed the entire bag you can freeze as usual in ice cube trays or baby food containers. Warning: The bright green color may elicit questions from strangers!

A great recipe for Mom:

Mix half of the soybean mixture with 2 cloves of baked garlic. To bake garlic simply cut the top off the clove and place on a pan in an oven set to 450 degrees for 7-15 minutes until carmelized. Add cumin to taste ( I like a LOT of cumin!) and spread on whole grain sandwich bread. Top with tomato slices and sharp cheddar and grill on a panini press. Delish!
