Non-GMO, organic, local, free range, grass-fed ingredients:
A bunch of rainbow swiss chard
Hard cheese such as Parmigiano Reggiano or Pecorino Romano
Rinse the chard. Chop the chard into even pieces from the tip of the stem to the top of the leaves. Place in a large pan or a sauce pot with some bone broth. Place a lid on to steam until tender. Drizzle over a small amount of olive oil.
Either eat like this with some grated cheese and pepper or for more sensitive jaws or for babies 6 months old or older: blend in a blender until you can eat easily with a spoon. Leave out salt and pepper for babies.
Babies love bone broth! (6 months and up.) It helps them become wonderful eaters and try all kinds of healthy food. Later for baby’s first finger foods the broth steamed chard stems chopped up into small pieces is delicious and easy to pick up. For babies over 8 months, you can also grate a little parmigiano-reggiano cheese over the swiss chard. Delicious!
It’s an amazing drink. Cozy up with a mug. Heat up on low on the stove (don’t microwave) and keep track of heat as anything with fat of this kind heats up quickly and is a little deceiving to the heat skin touch test. The drink is insulating itself…
The leftovers for this dish is great added into scrambled eggs/omelet, in soups, stews, on sandwich bread, sauces, and as a side for most dishes. A great snack as well.
(Baby Food: Always check for allergies as recommended by your doctor. Try each food and broth singularly in the morning, each on a different day, with a small amount so you have time in case of emergency to see a doctor. See if any reaction over a few hours.)
