Notes

To make this for a baby as well as a toddler: follow directions as stated above for the baby puree. Once you have baby’s portion blended, remove roughly one cup of the puree and set aside for baby. Add in the toddler ingredients to the blender or food processor (this recipe is very verstile so if you add in a few more chickpeans this way, then you will just get a thicker hummus) and blend until smooth. 
Spice it Up for Toddler: To spice up the toddler version even more, feel free to add in 2 tbsp tahini, 1/2 juiced lemon and/or 1/4 tsp paprika.
Spice it Up for Baby: To spice it up for baby, you can add in 1/4 tsp cumin or mild curry powder to their puree. 
Yield: 18 ounces of puree, 2 cups of dip
Age: 7+ months and up
