Warm Veggie Food

Posted by: Jean - aquarius@bellsouth.net - February 15, 1999

This recipe is enjoyed by my Cockatoo, Quaker and Cockatiels.....warm of course.

1/2 cup split peas
1/2 cup lentils
1/2 cup long grain brown rice
1 pkg. (16 oz) shoepeg corn

Boil these ingredients covered for 20 minutes, drain thoroughly. Add 1/2 to 3/4 cups couscous, stir in and let sit covered 20 minutes. This will cook the couscous. This is a crumbly mixture and good for the birds who love their warm meal. I double it when I make it, then freeze it into portions of enough for about 3 or 4 days of feeding. I warm it in the microwave, one portion at a time. It really helps get a baby bird over the weaning process, they still have one warm meal a day. ;-)
