  • For a Baby Food Puree - transfer all of the ingredients into a blender or food processor and puree for 1-2 minutes, adding water in 1/4 cup increments if needed.

  • To serve as a finger food or Baby-Led Weaning, place on a plate and serve to baby. I like to gently smash the cooked beans so they are a little easier to grip for baby.

Yield: 8 large baby-led weaning servings or roughly 20 ounces of puree
Storage: Finger foods and purees can be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. The puree can also be frozen for up to 4 months (this and this are my favorite freezer storage containers).
