Simple to make baby food peas, a pea puree for baby, that is rich in protein, folic acid, and vitamins and minerals. This stage one baby food can be mixed with fruit purees to make it more appealing for your child.
Servings: 12 ounces
- 2 lbs organic frozen peas about 2 (16 oz) bags

Steam your peas for 3-5 minutes
Once the peas are green and soft, pour them into a blender and add 8oz water. Puree until smooth.
Pour into ice cube trays, allow to cool, wrap/cover, and freeze.
Thaw in the fridge the night before use, or thaw by putting the ice cube in a bowl over a bowl of hot water on the counter to defrost.
Mix with your baby's favorite fruit or some sweeter veggies (butternut squash works great) to make peas more palatable!
