  1. Preparation: For 8-12 month-olds: Heat water and butter in microwave at 100 percent for 2 minutes in a 4-cup bowl. Add rice and carrots to hot water. Cook, uncovered, at 100 percent for 3 minutes. Stir and let rest 10 minutes, covered. Stir and cook, uncovered, 3 minutes more at 100 percent. (Rice should be almost tender. If it looks dry, add a tablespoon of water. ) Add ground turkey and distribute evenly throughout rice. Cover and cook at 100 percent for 2 minutes more. Let rest, covered, 5 minutes, until cool enough to eat and to allow for complete cooking of rice. Variations: Add peas or chopped green beans, fresh or frozen, at the same time turkey is added. Allow an additional 1 to 2 minutes resting time to cook vegetables before serving baby food . Yield: 3 cups Serving Size: 1-1/2 cups The Author Says: "This is a complete meal in one bowl. Just serve with milk and baby will be eating from all four food groups. It may taste a bit bland to you. That is because no salt is added. Remember, babies don't need added salt and have not developed an appetite for it yet." -- Eileen Behan, R.D. Recipe Source: Microwave Cooking For Your Baby & Child by Eileen Behan, R.D.
