This Green Bean + Parleys Baby Food Puree recipe is a great first puree for baby. A smooth and gentle puree that is also nutrient dense. Great for 4+ months and up. 


  • 2 cups green beans roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp dried Parsley
  • 1/4-1/2 cup reserved water breast milk or stock


  • Bring 2″ of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Place green beans into a steamer basket and sprinkle parsley over the green beans, cover and steam for 8 minutes. Reserve steamer water. Let cool slightly.
  • Place the green beans, parsley and 1/4 of cup liquid into a blender or food processor and puree for 1-2 minutes until smooth. If puree is too thick, add the additional 1/4 cup of liquid and puree until you get your desired consistency.


Other Spices: you can also use 1/2 tsp cilantro, 1/2 tsp basil, 1/2 tsp chives or 1/2 tarragon in place of the parsley. If using dried, add while steaming, if using fresh you can add to the blender while pureeing.
