I just spent the last 15 minutes testing out this simple baby food recipe from weelicious: Eat Your Greens baby food puree so I could share it with you with some authority. I first saw it in my bloggy friend Catherine McCord’s new book: Weelicious: 140 Fast, Fresh, and Easy Recipes (which was sent to me as a gift) but this recipe is on her blog too so you can find it right away.
I vote two thumbs up. I spent a couple minutes gathering the ingredients and rough chopping the vegetables while my water came to a boil, about six minutes steaming the veggies, then another three blending it all together. Fast, right? Find the full instructions for this puree on Catherine’s blog.
And it tasted good enough that I wanted to spread it on a cracker right then and there (which I know because some got on my fingers — oops!). Since my whole point was to make a few creative combos for my 13-month old, I resisted the urge to eat the baby food as a dip (but you totally could!). Here’s a glamourous video promo for the book if you are interested.
If you have never been, let me introduce you to Weelicious.com, a terrific FREE resource for parents looking for baby, toddler, and family food recipes with loads of pretty pictures and an easy search feature. I’m super impressed with the book so far. In the next few weeks, I’m going to put the “one family, one meal” mantra to the test and see if my big people like the food as much as I expect my baby to. I’ll be sure to let you know if we discover anything interesting.
