You can serve this as wedges, a thick mash, or a thinner puree to your baby or toddler.
– Sweet potato: Look for a medium to large sweet potato with orange flesh for the best flavor. These are sometimes called “garnet yams.” – Olive oil:
Cut in half, then cut lengthwise into strips. Cut each strip in half again until each is about ½ inch thick. (Each strip should be about the size of your finger.) Toss with the olive oil.
Roast for 22-25 minutes or until soft. To serve as a thick mash, remove skin and mash with a fork one at a time or in a larger portion in a food processor or blender.
To serve as a thinner sweet potato puree, mash with a fork and add 1 tablespoon warm water at a time to reach desired consistency.
Add crushed dried rosemary OR cinnamon for additional flavor. You can sprinkle with salt for babies over 1 and any adults.
You can combine this puree with Apple Puree, Pear Puree, Avocado Puree, Banana Puree, Bean Puree, or anything that sounds appealing to you.
