Baby Food - Squash, Carrots and Peas

A very simple, nutritious recipe!

Squash, Carrots and Peas
  • 1 cup peeled and chopped butternut squash
  • 3 medium to large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas

Put the chopped squash and carrots in a saucepan and cover with water.  Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes.

Add the frozen peas and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.

Puree in a food processor with as much of the cooking liquid as needed to acquire a smooth consistency.

And here's the yield! Wrap your ice cube trays nice and tight in plastic wrap, label, and freeze.

Carrots are baby food gold.  They are packed with Vitamin A and improve night vision and their sweet taste are easily accepted by Baby.

THE VERDICT - Micah really likes this recipe.  The squash makes it very smooth and the peas add a nice dose of greens to the mix.  I hope you give this one a try because it's a pretty solid recipe.
