Hi! I am an Eclectus parrot owner and I love to cook! Why not be able to share your meals with your fids? I hope these ideas will encourage you to eat healthier as well as enrich the lives of your parrots. Enjoy and happy cooking!!

These recipes are designed to be made for you and your family AND be safe to share with your parrot. Special consideration has been given to the unique Eclectus diet. Please be aware that, where noted, some ingredients should be added ONLY to the human servings. If you have questions or suggestions feel free to add them in comments for that recipe!

Carrots & Peas Orzo


  • Salt & pepper (for the people)
  • 1 cup orzo
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 4 carrots, sliced
  • Drizzle of honey (optional)
  • 1/2 cup grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese


1.   Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, add the orzo & cook until just before al dente, about 7 minutes. Add the peas & cook for 1 minute; drain & return the pasta & peas to the pot.
2.   While the pasta is cooking, in a medium saucepan, cover the carrots with water & bring to a boil. Cook until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain, reserving about 1/2 cup cooking water, then transfer the carrots to a food processor. Add the reserved cooking water & honey, if using, & process until smooth.
3.   Stir the carrot puree into the pasta & peas.  Portion out half for the fids & let cool before serving; season the people's portion with salt & pepper.  Sprinkle with parmesan & enjoy.
