Berry Bake Bites

This recipe can be made with whatever ingredients you want and variety is best. This is just an example of one of the yummy meals my parrots receive. Feel free to vary your berries, grains, nuts etc. as much as you want

In this dish I used brown rice, pasta, red lentils, couscous, apple, blackberries, strawberries, grapes, almond flakes, walnuts, cayenne pepper and crushed chillis

Firstly, you need an oven safe dish. Add all of your grains and mix



Now you need to prepare your fruits, berries and nuts. Throw them all in





Fill your kettle right to the top and boil. Fill the dish with the water until it is covered and submerged. Sprinkle in the cayenne pepper and crushed chillis



Set your oven to gas mark 6. Cook for at least one hour. If the water isn't absorbed by then continue to cook until you think it is done



The finished dish should look good enough to eat yourself (by all means try it). Give it a good mix through as most of the apple etc. would have floated to the top and would have stayed there as the water was absorbed. Your grains should have a fluffy texture



There you have it! Please comment below if you do decide to try it. Feed back is always fun. Remember you can vary this as much as you want

You guys are also lucky, as this isn't scheduled to come out on our blog until tomorrow afternoon

It looks a lot like what my parrots eat on a daily basis, only I alternate fruity and spicy flavors instead of blending them as you did.

No problem! I usually do taste my bird foods if it ain't good enough for me it certainly isn't for them!

Any idea the translation to American stoves?

You are a great chef! Thank you for sharing. Your recipe is quite easy and I certainly want to try it. I'm curious to see who will eat it first (after me, ahahah): my lovebirds, my budgies or my conure?

That looks great Daisy!! Hubby found this, Full Circle 5 grain blend, at the grocery store last night and bought it for my birds... I hope they like it! It's precooked and then dehydrated sorta like minute rice.
