Baby Food - "See-in-the-Dark" Puree

Annabel Karmel calls this recipe the "See-in-the-Dark Puree" because it is jam packed with carrots that are treasure troves of Vitamin A and the boost of orange juice throws some Vitamin C in the mix. 

See-in-the-dark Puree
  • 1 small onion, diced (I only did half an onion to avoid it being too overpowering)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups Vegetable Stock
  • 1/4 cup orange juice

Saute the in onion in the butter until softened.  Add the carrots and saute for 3 to 4 minutes.  Pour in the stock, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the carrots are tender.
Add the orange juice and puree!

THE VERDICT - At first taste, Micah wasn't loving it.  I think I introduced it a bit too early though.  We back-tracked a bit and got him used to to just plain carrots first.  Once he had developed a taste for those, I tried this one again with big success!
