Baby Food—Puréed Green Peas
- Ready in: 20 minutes prep
- Serves: 8
- Complexity: easy
Parents who make their own baby food appreciate knowing exactly what they’re feeding their baby, they are glad to be avoiding additives, and they enjoy feeding their baby the same fresh foods that the rest of the family eats.
- 2 cups shelled peas (or substitute green beans or broccoli)
- ¼ cup cooking juices, water, breast milk, or formula
Place vegetables in a steamer and cook until bright green but not overdone. Let cool and reserve the cooking water, if using. Add peas to the food processor with some liquid, about ¼ cup or as needed to smooth out the purée. The purée should not be too thick. Spoon the final purée mixture into ice cube trays and freeze. Once solid, remove the ice cubes from the tray and store in a freezer bag or container. Thaw the ice cubes as needed and serve.
