For babies 6 months and over


Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 cup small zucchini
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup mashed potato, optional

Method

  1. Wash and cut the ends off the zucchini, and cut into small pieces
  2. Bring a small saucepan of water to boil on a stove. Add the peas and zucchini and cook until soft, around 5 minutes
  3. Puree together in a blender until smooth.
  4. If it’s a little too lumpy for your child, push through a sieve to remove the zucchini and pea skins that haven’t been pureed
  5. Stir in the mashed potato, if desired

Notes

The mashed potato will thicken up this vegetable puree and make it smoother. Can be frozen for up to six weeks - but only if fresh peas were used. Otherwise refrigerate and eat within two days

  • I like how vibrant the colour is

  • Beautiful vibrant green colour. Pretty much pea flavour here as zucchini is much bland

  • These are 3 vegetables with a high water content. You would have to cook them with the mininum amount of water needed or you would lose all the nutriment. Also it may go watery when thawed, the longer it is frozen for the more so.


    • Thanks for these pointers, makes sense.
