- 2 medium yellow squash, trimmed and chopped
- 1 small white potato, chopped (see notes)
- 1/2 tsp fresh thyme, roughly chopped
Instructions for Nutribaby
Place the squash, white potato and thyme into the large basket. Start a 10 minute steam cycle.
Let cool and then transfer all of the ingredients into the blender.
Puree until smooth. I did not need to add any additional cooking liquid but if your puree is too thick, add 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquid in at a time until you achieve your desired texture.
Instructions for Regular Cooking Method
In a medium saucepan, bring 2 inches of water to a boil. Add the squash, potato and thyme into a steamer basket and steam for 10 minutes. Let cool slightly. Reserve steamer water.
Transfer all of the ingredients in to a blender of food processor and puree for 1-2 minutes or until smooth, adding water in 1/4 cup increments if needed.

Yield: 15 ounces
Note on Potato: Feel free to use a cored, peeled and chopped apple or pear in this recipe instead of the potato.
Notes on Thyme: I steamed the thyme in this recipe so their flavors are more subtle, but for a big spice kick you can add the thyme right before pureeing.
Storage: Fridge – store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Freezer – can be frozen for up to 4 months (this and this are my favorite freezer storage containers).
