Black-eyed Peas and Arugula

I would never have guessed that M will eat arugula. It was a gamble that I decided to play.

 

Brown rice          1/2 cup
Black-eyed peas 1/2 cup
Arugula               3 cups
Cumin
Garlic
Extra virgin olive oil

 

I cooked brown rice and black-eyed peas together, steamed and finger-mashed arugula, and sauteed them in olive oil with garlic and ground cumin. I added a teeny tiny dash of salt and cayenne pepper to it too, but I don’t notice any difference in taste from before I added those, so I didn’t list them. It is a tad bitter, but M seems to think nothing of the bitterness!

 

Do you have any such strange lunch recipes that your baby/toddler eats or perhaps you do?

  1. Yum! I can’t remember where I learned this tip (some celebrity chef on the Food Network, no doubt), but a pinch of nutmeg really goes nicely with dark green leafy vegetables like spinach or arugula. Now that the weather is nice, it will be great to try all the offerings at Jean Talon Market.

  3. Nutmeg! Hmmm… I’ll try it out, thanks for the tip! I hear that Jean Talon Market is better and bigger than Atwater but being able to walk to a market is a lot nicer!
