Zucchini Puree

I love zucchini, but pureed zucchini is something I never would have thought to make for bebe E.

According to “The Baby & Toddler Cookbook“, zucchini is a natural first food for babies because of it’s tender texture and very mild flavor.  In addition, it’s thin skin makes it easy to prepare and easy for baby to digest.

Because bebe E will eat the skin of the zucchini, I felt it was important to buy organic.

So far, my bebe has been a great eater, and there hasn’t been a veggie that she hasn’t liked.  However, just in case, I only bought one zucchini to determine whether or not she’ll continue on this path of being a good, non-picky eater.

Zucchini Puree

(1st Foods / 6 Months Old)

  • 1 organic zucchini
  • water

Similar to all of the other homemade baby food recipes, the process is very simple.

Boil water in a small pot, add sliced zucchini and cook for about 5 minutes until tender.  If you prefer, try using a steam basket to steam these for about 5 – 7 minutes

Let the zucchini cool to room temperature.  Then, using a hand blender, purée the zucchini to a smooth consistency.  I didn’t add any of the reserved liquid to purée this because the zucchini retains quite a bit of water.

Scoop 1 – 2 tablespoons into each BabyCube.  Store in the fridge for up to 3 days and in the freezer for up to 3 months.

For lunch bebe E enjoyed mixed zucchini purée with her pureed sweet peas and she absolutely love them!

Bon apetit little ones!
