A Healthy, Easy, Vegetarian Crock Pot Recipe That My Toddler Loves (LINKY)

Toddlers can have very short attention spans, especially when it comes to eating. That’s why I love creating meals that offer 19 month old Baby lots of whole foods that span the food groups within a single bite. Here’s a healthy, super easy, crock pot recipe that Baby loves:

Equal parts of:
Black Beans
Kidney Beans
Brown Rice
Green Lentils
Green Beans
Bragg Certified Organic Sprinkle Seasoning

It doesn’t get easier than this! Put all of the ingredients in the crock pot and season with Bragg to taste.

To avoid BPA, use fresh or frozen ingredients, or use products in BPA free cans like the ones from Eden Organic.

Looks yummy! This will be on next weeks menu. I’ve just started using dry beans (instead of canned)…do you know if I should soak them before putting them in the crockpot? I’m sure that it is a question I should know the answer to, but I don’t!

Thanks for sharing!

Yummy! We cook beans on a daily basis and I really should get a crock pot to make some simple meals but I don’t even know if they are available in Dominica! I must check

We use dried beans almost all the time with the exception of chick peas as they take too long to cook. I would probably soak them overnight before adding them to a pot as they still take quite a while to cook after this has been done. And red kidney beans must always be soaked and boiled separately before cooking with other foods as they are toxic without this process.

Thanks for the Linky Mama!

You’re really a pro cook! I would try this at home to give my children the healthy food like what you did. Do you have other variations of this dish?

Thanks for the recipe!
