Broccoli Jjuk (Broccoli Rice Porridge)

According to, broccoli, onion and garlic may be introduced between 8 and 10 months of age.  This makes Broccoli Jjuk the perfect food for a wholesome family breakfast.

Brocolli Jjuk (Broccoli Rice Porridge)

1/2 of one broccoli top
1/4 medium onion
1 clove garlic
2 C water
1/4 t salt
3 C cooked rice
2C water
  1. Chop onion into large pieces.
  2. Place onion, broccoli, garlic and the dash of salt in a pot with 2 C water.
  3. Cook vegetables over medium heat until just soft.
  4. Using an immursion blender or table top blender, blend the vegetables until pureed.
  5. Return the chopped vegetables to the pot.
  6. Add 3 C rice and 2 more cups of water to the pot.
  7. Cook on low heat until the rice begins to break down.  Add water 1/4 C at a time, if necessary.
  8. Salt to taste and serve.

Shortcut:  If you have steamed broccoli leftover from dinner, you may omit steps 1 - 6.  Place the onion, garlic and steamed broccoli in a blender with 1/4 cup water and blend until pureed.  Place the vegetable mixture in a pot with 2 C rice and cook as indicated in Step 7.  Salt to taste and serve.

NOTE 1:  If your baby angel has not eaten onion or garlic yet, I would use EITHER the onion OR the garlic.  You may also decrease the amount of those spices until their baby tummies adapt.

NOTE 2:  To kick the flavors up a notch and the nutrition, too, use chicken broth instead of water.
