Category:

Ingredients:

  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 swede

Method:

Peel and chop the carrot and swede and place in a pot of boiling water.

Boil for around 10 minutes, or until soft.

Strain and reserve some of the water.

Puree in blender until smooth, adding a little reserved water to make it a nice consistency.

Peel and chop the carrot and swede and place in a microwave-safe container. Place cling wrap over the top, leaving a corner uncovered to vent steam.

Cook on HIGH in the microwave for around 4 minutes or until vegetables are soft.

Puree in the blender until smooth, adding a little water to make it a nice consistency.

Notes:

  • Carrots are great first foods for babies but when they are pureed, they can become a bit thin and lumpy. By adding the swede, you’ll be able to puree this combo to a delicious creamy consistency your baby will find easy to eat.
  • This puree can be frozen for up to 6 weeks.
