Description

The serving size for baby food can vary widely based on the age and appetite of the baby, so follow baby’s cues for being done—they will close their mouth and/or turn their head or start to fuss. End the meal when you see those things happen.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen peas

Instructions

  1. Add the peas to a medium pot and cover with about an inch of water.
  2. Place on the stove over high heat. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat.
  3. Drain in a colander.
  4. Add to a blender and blend smooth, adding 1/4-1/2 cup water (or sodium-free broth) to create a smooth baby food puree. (Less liquid will create a thicker puree, more liquid will create a thinner one.)
  5. Serve or store for future meals.

Notes

Use organic peas if desired.

Add 2 tablespoons avocado, 1 teaspoon olive oil, or 1 teaspoon butter to add healthy fats and flavor.

Combine with whole milk plain yogurt for a simple baby snack.

Combine with Applesauce or Banana Puree and serve in a baby food reusable pouch.

Store in small airtight containers in the fridge for 3-5 days. Serve cold or slightly warm.

Freeze in a silicone ice cube tray overnight. Transfer to a freezer bag, remove as much air as possible, and freeze for up to 6 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge or at room temperature.
