African Grey Pilaf


This recipe has been developed to provide the nutrients necessary for good health in African Grey parrots. Quinoa and sesame seeds are both sources of calcium. Brazil nuts are high in selenium. Yams and dark green leafy vegetables provide valuable Vitamin A. The oil blend contributes essential fatty acids.

cup quinoa (pronounced keen-wa)

1 cup water

1 cup grated yams, sweet potatoes or carrots

fresh corn kernels cut from one cob corn or cup frozen corn

cup grated broccoli or other finely chopped dark green leafy vegetable

cup grated Brazil nuts

cup unhulled sesame seed

cup canary seed mix

cup Abba Green 92 nestling food (optional)

2 teaspoons Udos Oil Blend or other oil blend high in EFAs

Bring water to a boil and add quinoa. Bring back to boil, cover, turn heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Add yams, stir, cover and cook for 10 minutes longer or until liquid is absorbed. Turn into a bowl, add other ingredients and mix gently. Serve warm (no hotter than 110 degrees) or at room temperature.

*Note: Quinoa, Brazil nuts, unhulled sesame seed and the oil blend are found at any good health food store. Canary seed will be found at a pet store. AbbaGreen 92 is carried by Feathered Kids N Stuff at (513) 943-9030.
