Zucchini  Baby food,  2 ways

An easy method with options for baby-led weaning zucchini and also puree!

– Zucchini: I prefer to start with fresh zucchini since you have more ability to change the shape to suit baby-led weaning. – Olive oil

Ingredients needed:

Cut the ends off of the zucchini and discard. Slice the zucchini into sticks about the size of your finger.

Step 1.

Add the olive oil to a medium skillet over medium heat. When warm, add the zucchini. Toss to coat with the oil.

Step 2.

Cover and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning once or twice, or until the zucchini is very soft when poked with a fork.

Step 3.

Remove from the pan and let the zucchini cool slightly. Serve one piece at a time to your child if doing baby-led weaning.

Step 4.

To make a puree: Transfer to a blender. Blend smooth, adding the optional herb or spinach. (That additional makes this a brighter green color.)

Step 5.

Store the puree in airtight containers in the fridge for up to 5 days. Or freeze in an ice cube tray overnight, transfer to a freezer bag, and freeze for up to 6 months.

Step 5.
