This book, comprising 100+ recipes to spice up your baby’s life, was years in the making. I am very thankful to a whole community of people who saw this project through. It took a village to raise Spice Baby!
These are South Asian and East African influenced recipes but it really is meant for anyone wanting to introduce their little ones to a variety of flavours as early as possible, such as cardamom, clove, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, fennel, ginger, garlic, mint, nutmeg, saffron, and turmeric. The recipes range from exotic fruit purées like peach and cardamom, to hearty lentil and meat curries, to manageable finger foods for toddlers like pillowy naan and much more.
Included with this book is a 12-week day-to-day chart, showing how to give a baby his/her first super foods along with several herbs and spices that are widely used but also commonly associated with South Asian cuisine. There are vegan and vegetarian options too.
If you are past this stage, there are recipes for the whole family to enjoy regardless of age. This is a great baby shower gift too!
My mom Yasmin Habib was instrumental in the creation of this book. Both she and my dad Nadir Habib made sure my kids got a taste of all of the foods that we grew up with. And it’s all in this book!
