Homemade Baby Food Recipes: Pea Puree
Peas are a great source of Vitamin K, which is important for maintaining bone health. They also contain folic acid and Vitamin B6 which are good for heart health.
Servings: 12 ounces
- 2 bags organic frozen peas usually about 2 lbs
- 8 oz water
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!
