Baby Food Recipes 2/1/12

Here are a couple more recipes I’ve made for Eliana:

Yam Soup – all vegetables are organic
– 3 yams (skin on) chopped
– 2 carrots chopped
– 1 zucchini chopped
– 2 yellow onions chopped
– 1 bag organic baby lettuce/spinach mix
– ¾ cup Fage Total Greek yogurt (or any other full-fat plain yogurt you like)
– 1 quart organic, low-sodium vegetable broth
– Olive oil, chopped garlic, salt and pepper to taste

Heat olive oil in a large pot on low-medium heat. Add onions with a pinch of salt. After 1 minute add chopped garlic and stir. Cook around 5 minutes. Add yams and carrots and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir. Cook around 5 more minutes. Add zucchini, stir and cook 2 minutes. Add vegetable broth, stir and bring to a boil. Lower heat to a medium simmer and cover for 20-30 minutes. Add yogurt and stir. Turn off heat. Blend with an immersion blender or in a food processor or blender. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
Let cool slightly before serving to baby. 

The Yam Soup is something I was making for me and Matt. But, I put some aside for Eliana right after I blended it. Since a baby is supposed to have a lot less salt than an adult, I typically take out a cup or so of what I’m making for Eliana’s batch after I put in only a bit of seasoning . Then I add more seasoning for us. 

– ½ can organic chick peas – rinsed
– Juice of ½-1 lemon
– Olive oil, salt and pepper to taste
Blend chick peas and olive oil in a food processor.  Add juice of ½ lemon, salt and pepper. Blend again and adjust seasonings and lemon juice to taste. 

Mmmm, hummus! More, please.
Happy Cooking!
