This makes 1 baby serving. It will keep in the fridge for 1-2 days, if you plan on keeping it longer, freeze it. Prep/cook time does not reflect cooking the vegetables prior.
- 1⁄2 cup freshly cooked vegetables, your choice
- 2 tablespoons milk or 2 tablespoons infant formula or 2 tablespoons cooking water
- Put the ingredients into a blender.
- Run on low speed until very smooth.
It's a keeper for me - I have made this one twice since having dental surgery. One time I mixed steamed peas with low sodium chicken broth and the second time I used green beans.
Just reinforcing LonghornMama's tip about potatoes turning into a glutenous clump. The same is true of most starchy root vegetables ( yams, taro, cassava also called manioc or yuca). Don't have a blender? Food can be pressed through a strainer with the back of a fork! Happy Pureeing.
A great reminder that baby food is so easy to make at home! Just wanted to add a note that potatoes should be put through a ricer or food mill and not be whirred through the blender or food processor, they'll turn into a glutenous clump. Ice cube trays work really well for freezing baby food portions, just transfer the cubes to a ziploc freezer bag and pull out servings as needed. Easy and so much cheaper to make your own organic baby food this way as well. Thanks, CoffeeMom, for posting!
