Recipe by WI Cheesehead

From the Baby Let's Eat cookbook. Under the 6-12 months category, adults will love too (just not pureed!)

Winner for the whole family - our nine-month old tucked right in (but did look at me in horror as if to say "where's the meat, woman?") and the adults thought it went very nicely as an accompaniment to pork chops. Thanks!
