Fresh Baby Food - Veggies

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Mom2 T, K, K & G

This is a simple recipe to prepare fresh baby food for your baby rather than the expensive jars. Found this on a Vegetarian website, I think. It makes 8 cubes, so I put 8 servings since I would consider this a side dish.

I make my own baby food, just like this recipe. My son loves pureed veggies (peas, carrots, green beans, blueberries, etc) fresh, but he won't eat them after they've been frozen. The texture turns distasteful since the moisture separates and the veggies part is kind of spongy. I think some people freeze puree; I wonder what their secret is.

  1. Puree vegetables and liquid in blender until smooth. Serve or freeze.
