About this recipe:This recipe was passed to me by a friend. It is an ideal vegetarian option when introducing different tastes to babies, and a good source of protein and iron. It can also be frozen and used when needed. You can add half a tin of chopped tomatoes instead of the sweet potato - my son loves it!
