Lovely Lentils (Baby Food)

Lovely Lentils (Baby Food) created by Hadice

I have been making baby food and purees for the last 5 months. I love it and baby does too! I was confident baby would turn this recipe down but this is one of his absolute favorites! Credit goes to Annabel Karmel and her fabulous baby food ideas. After preparing a batch of this, I spoon portions into an ice cube tray, flash freeze, remove from trays and then store in bags in the freezer. Two cubes reheated is the perfect portion for a hungry nine month old

    I made this for my nine month old baby girl. She loved it! This recipe is definitely a keeper. The only changed I made was using homemade chicken broth. I also used red lentils. Thanks for the delicious combination.

    I was skeptical with the addition of onion in here for a baby, but my little guy LOVES this! I started feeding it to him at 6 months, and now at 8 months with 4 teeth, I do not puree it, so he can experience the textures. We alternate between this, and a chicken/squash mixture to make sure he is getting protein. This freezes really well, so I make batches that last me 2 weeks in those 4 oz. containers from Rubbermaid with the easy-find lids. They are so much better than the baby dishes. They do not leak and dishwasher safe.

    My 9 mos old loves this! It cooked fairly quickly, pureed nicely. I used a large sweet potato and homemade veggie broth. It's great to be able to make your own baby food, you can tweak it to your baby's liking. Thanks, this is very healthy and tasty!
