This post is sponsored by Babymoov but my love for this product is all my own! Thank you for supporting the brands that support Baby FoodE!
This smooth and creamy puree is made with yellow squash (or zucchini as I call them), a small white potato and a sprinkle of thyme. This puree is mild with a nice note of fragrant thyme and is full of vitamin A and C, magnesium, fiber and folate. Since yellow squash is in abundance in the spring and summer months, you have no excuse not to make this.
Because summer squash is loaded with water, I use a white potato in this recipe for some extra thickness. But if you aren’t into the potato, you can also substitute in an apple or pear if you prefer.
This easy puree is made in exactly 3 steps and takes roughly 14 minutes to make, from chopping to finished puree. 14 minutes until you have this delicious puree bursting with summer’s favorite yellow vegetable!
Step 1 – Chop your veggies
Step 2 – Stack your baskets and push the steam button
Step 3 – Puree the zucchini into a smooth consistency
Done and Done!
