One of the first foods we gave our son, carrots have become a favorite in our house. They couldn’t be easier to prepare either!
Simply peel and slice the amount of carrots you’d like to use. Place in a steaming basket over boiling water and steam for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Adding a little bit of water (do not use your cooking water), purée the carrots in a machine such as a Blentec, food processor or Baby Bullet.
Allow the purée to cool enough to feed your baby, place in the fridge to be used within two days or place in ice cube trays to freeze for 4 hours. If freezing, remove the frozen purée from the trays and place in a freezer bag and mark to be used within 3 months.
It’s as easy as that! Once baby gets older, you can start adding the carrot purée with other vegetables and even add it to over cooked brown rice for a chunky meal!
