Sweet Potato, Carrots, Cauliflower Baby Food Puree with Chia Seeds
This Sweet Potato, Carrot, Cauliflower Baby Food Puree with Chia Seeds is as nutrient dense and veggie filled of a baby food puree as you can get - plus it tastes so good baby will want to eat it!
Servings: 28 ounces
- 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
- 1 cup cauliflower florets
- 1/4 teaspoon chia seeds
In a medium saucepan, bring 2 inches of water to a boil. In a steamer basket, add in the sweet potato, carrot and cauliflower, place basket over boiling water and cover. Steam for 12-15 minutes or until all ingredients are tender when pricked with a fork. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Reserve steamer water.
Transfer the sweet potatoes, carrots and cauliflower to a blender or food processor and add in the chia seeds. Add in 1/2 cup liquid (steamer water, breast milk, formula, stock or water).
Puree all of the ingredient at high speed for 1-2 minutes or until you reach your desired consistency. Add in additional liquid in 1/4 cup increments if puree is too thick. I had to add in 1 cup of reserved steamer water to the puree pictured above.
