baby bite: pureed carrots
today, i thought i'd introduce carrots to baby's diet.
1 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp reserved steam water
of course, i started with farm fresh organic squash. after rinsing, slice carrot on the bias. then, quarter each half. don't dice or cut too small, otherwise you'll end up with water logged carrots and orange-nutrient rich steam water. the goal is to soften the carrots, without overcooking...about 15 minutes. once carrots have softened, place them in a food processor along with 2 tbsp reserved steam water and 1 tsp olive oil. blend together until smooth.
voila...at 7 months, baby's first carrots! he loved them.
