Sweet Pea Puree

Posted by on April 12, 2010 in 1st Foods | 6 Months, Baby's Food, Blog | 0 comments

Pureed peas are one of bebe E’s favorite green veggies and we go through a 1 pound bag of frozen organic peas in about 2 weeks.

Peas are legumes and are rich in protein and fiber.  They also contain high amounts of iron and vitamin C.  We should all eat more peas!

Today was a rainy day and a perfect day to stay indoors and stock-up on some of bebe E’s homemade favorites.  We’re almost finished with the 6 month foods section of “The Baby & Toddler Cookbook” from Williams and Sonoma.

Like all of bebe E’s homemade baby food, the recipe and preparation is simple.  This tastes really good too, no wonder bebe E loves her peas.

Sweet Pea Puree

(1st Foods / 6 Months Old)

  • 1 pound bag of fresh or frozen organic peas
  • Water

Pour water into a medium pot and bring water to a boil.

Add fresh or frozen peas and boil for about 5 – 7 minutes until tender.  Remove peas from pot and reserve cooking liquid.  Let peas cool to room temperature.

The Cuisinart hand blender came with a BPA-free cup which is convenient for pureeing small portions of baby food.

Add peas and 1/2 tablespoon to 1 tablespoon of the reserved cooking liquid, depending on the consistency of food your baby can handle.  Bebe E is graduating to thicker, and hopefully chunkier foods soon, so I don’t add much water.

Scoop individual portions into Baby Cubes.  Store in refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Bon apetit little ones!
