Cannelini beans, also known as white beans have a smooth texture and a nutty flavor. Combined with the brown rice, you have a complete protein. I’ve been making the adult version of this dish for years. When you make this for babies it becomes a creamy purée that—I’ve found—they can’t stop eating.
You can make these ahead for eating on the run, or savor them at the table with all the toppings of your choice. Either way, they make a great morning fuel choice, thanks to whole grains, yogurt, and nut butter. This recipe was originally inspired by a whole wheat peanut butter waffle recipe from the waffle iron of the excellent Melissa Clark.
