Pea baby food puree

    20 min

    Great for busy mums and dads to make a bunch on a Sunday and freeze for the weeks ahead. This can be used with other first foods for your baby! Apples or pears are fun or even green beans. Make sure it is mild enough for your baby's developing digestive system. You can also use fresh peas instead of frozen if you have them.

    Ingredients
    Makes: 12 portions

    • 675g frozen garden peas
    • 125ml breast milk

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to the boil. Add peas, cover, and steam until tender, about 15 minutes.
    2. Place peas and breast milk in a blender or food processor and puree until creamy. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve to remove any lumps.
    3. Spread pea mixture into an ice cube tray, cover with cling film and freeze until solid, 2 to 3 hours. Transfer frozen cubes to a resealable plastic bag and store in the freezer.
    4. To serve, heat cubes in the microwave for about 30 seconds until warm but not hot. Stir thoroughly.

    Cook's notes

    You can substitute formula or water for the breast milk.
    Store frozen cubes in the freezer for up to 2 months.

    Formula could be used instead of breast milk. Some blenders work better than others. It is ok to keep adding more liquid until you get the consistency your baby likes. If you make it too liquidy, you can always add rice cereal or oatmeal after thawing it.  -  22 Oct 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I use this method to make all of my homemade baby food. Freezes very well! I used the cooking water instead of breast milk to thin out the peas. I just do not have that much breastmilk pumped at the moment. The cooking water contains some vitamins and nutrients which have been leached out during the cooking process. Excellent post for new parents!  -  06 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
