Fresh Baby Food - Veggies

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 0 mins

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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup vegetables (potatoes, carrots, yellow squash, green beans, or peas. Should be fresh or frozen and cooked WITHOUT)
  • 4 -8 tablespoons water (or breastmilk or baby formula, to reach desired consistancy)


  1. Puree vegetables and liquid in blender until smooth. Serve or freeze.
  2. Note: After trying single foods, try to use combinations such as potatoes and carrots or carrots and peas.

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.

I made this for myself after dental surgery. It was pretty good. I also tried it using low sodium chicken broth as a liquid and that also worked well. Thanks for the share !
