Pureed Carrots (Age: 4 months +)
Age: 4-6 months
2 fresh carrots.
Peel and wash carrots, dice. Microwave or place in a small saucepan with 1 tablespoon of boiling water and simmer gently with lid on until tender.
Allow to cool. Blend in a food processor until pureed or fork mash.
Place 1-2 tablespoons in babys serving bowl, place the remainder in an airtight container and refrigerate or freeze.
Substitute potato, pumpkin, squash, sweet potato (kumara), fresh or frozen beans and peas for the carrots.
Use the food processor for fibrous vegetables such as carrot, parsnip, peas or beans as they are sometimes difficult to mash.
