Risotto with Tomato and Basil


Risotto with Tomato and Basil

Risotto rice is a great cupboard staple, and making risotto is a good way to introduce texture into your baby’s diet.


1 tsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 leek, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
110 g long grain rice
300 ml water
35 g parmesan cheese, grated
3 tomatoes, deseeded and chopped
2 tbsp basil, finely chopped


  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and leek and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and fry for 30 seconds.
  2. Add the rice and coat in the onion mixture. Pour over the water. Bring up to the boil.
  3. Cover with a lid and simmer over a very low heat for 12 to 15 minutes or until all of the water is absorbed and the rice is cooked.
  4. Add the cheese, tomatoes and basil. Gently mix together.
  5. Follow this up with fruit when serving as dinner for a 9-12 month old.
