The adventures of baby food begin...
Peel and cube a large sweet potato into ~1/2 inch chunks. Toss
with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and slow roast in a 350 degree heated
oven for 40-45 minutes.
Roasted sweet potato (a large sweet potato yielded 1 1/2 cups
roasted sweet potato) and 1 cup of prepared quinoa (cooked
according to package directions).
Two of my favorites, how bad can this be?
Pop in a food processor or blender. I ended up adding 1 1/2 cups
of water, for the perfect puree. Add the water in 1/2 cup increments
for the perfect consistency for your baby.
Roasted sweet potato & quinoa puree.
I bought 2 sets of lidded BPA-free trays (4 trays total) with my first,
and just pulled them out of storage, as I begin baby food making
for my newest (and final) little.
One large sweet potato, 1 cup of prepared quinoa and 1 1/2 cups
of water yielded 21 serving portions. I pop the trays in the freezer, and
one day later pop the portions out of the containers (running the bottoms
of the covered trays under hot water, if they need a bit of loosening),
and store in a freezer bag or covered container in the freezer
(making certain to label and date).
I plan ahead for the next day, and pull out the portions I will need,
to allow them to thaw in the refrigerator.
Benny says, 'get in my belly'...
Benny approved! He was also eating a bit of pureed oatmeal with
cinnamon and bananas that I portioned out and froze the other night,
so that explains the crazy mess of a bib!
