    i used to do this with my blender - just a basic cuisinart. i tried it with my food processor, but it never chopped it up fine enough for my liking. my food processor was a super cheap kitchen aid one, though.

    I've made baby cereal with brown rice and oatmeal in my blender, it worked well.

    Do u wash the brown rice before grinding it into powder?

      No need to rinse the rice first as the added starch makes the rice cereal delicious and sticky.

      You can add a touch of molasses, apple sauce, mashed banana, cinnamon, breast milk or other puree :)

    can you cook the rice first and then blend?

    Very basic question. I place the specified amount of organic short grain brown rice into the blender for 2 minutes. Then I cooked it as directed but it was too hard. Was I supposed to cook it for longer than 5 minutes? I didn't dare feed it to the baby since he cannot chew yet. There were still some pieces that looked a little too big.

    I love your website. love your enthusiastic way of cooking.
    i cooked brown rice twice before for my family and it took
    45 mins approx. now i am really apprehensive that by just adding boiling water to brown rice would not be cooked enough to feed my 8 month old.
    Can you please reply.

      Since you first grind the brown rice to make a powder for this recipe, the cooking time is far shorter than when cooking full grains of rice! http://b12.ba4.myftpupload.com/2011/02/28/brown-rice-cereal/ Here is a link to the full recipe.
