Tuscan White Beans Baby Food from Weelicious

This dish reminds me of something you would have on a cool night in Tuscany. Cannelini beans, also known as white beans have a smooth texture and a nutty flavor. Combined with the brown rice, you have a 
complete protein. I've been making the adult version of this dish for years. When you 
make this for babies it becomes a creamy puree that -- I've found -- they can't stop eating. This is one of those dishes that I crave when I think about 
it. This baby version of it is so quick, inexpensive and easy.
 Whether I soak my own beans or open a can of organic ones, I always put aside a few for Kenya to pick up and feed himself. Since they're nice 
and mushy, Tuscan White Beans are easy for babies, even with few teeth, to munch on.

    Sounds delish! I want to make this for my 8 month old tonight…the beans are soaking already! Question: Do you need to cook the onions and garlic in the steamer pot? I’ve never steamed onion or garlic. Also, cooking kale that long seems like it would take away a lot of nutrients!

    Would this work well without the tomato? Or is there something I could substitute? My husband is allergic to tomato, so we are not introducing it until baby is older.

    This really sounds yummy! My granddaughter is 14 weeks old, but I can hardly wait until she is old enough to eat things like this! I have quite the recipe file going…
