Best Pumpkin Baby Food (with Easy Flavor Combos!)
The amount of puree you wind up with will vary according to the size of the pumpkin you start with.
- 1 pie or sugar pumpkin
- 2 tablespoons olive oil (or avocado oil or melted unsalted butter)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Wash and dry your pumpkin.
Cut off the stem and the base. Cut into quarters.
Remove the seeds and the stringy stuff with a spoon and/or a knife.
Cut into 2-3 inch wedges and brush with oil. Place on a foil lined baking sheet.
Roast until soft.
Scoop off the skin and place into a blender.
Blend, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed to make a smooth puree.
Serve, once cooled at least slightly, or combine with another favorite baby food for flavorful combinations.
