Baby-led Weaning Breakfast Ideas: Sweet Potato and Quinoa Breakfast Tortilla
Breakfast tortillas are a traditional Spanish dish. This one swaps the potatoes for sweet potatoes and quinoa to provide extra nutrition for your family.
It’s a great way to introduce sweet potatoes and quinoa to your baby-led weaner. And cuts into the perfect-sized strips for them to grasp. My whole family loves this recipe too, it’s not just for babies!
