This is a fancy pea puree recipe, because our veggie babies are refined food connoisseurs, am I right? Well, they are until they dump their bowl of fancy peas on the floor, that is.
So what makes this recipe fancy? Mint! It adds a little kick of flavour, but beyond that, it’s super rich in calcium, iron and magnesium. I find that oftentimes herbs are overlooked in terms of their nutritional value, and some parents might be afraid to try adding herbs and spices to their baby’s food. But, the more you play around with taste, the more your veggie baby’s palette will develop.
2 cups peas, fresh or frozen
1 sprig of fresh mint leaves, de-stemmed
1-3 Tbsp water, breastmilk or formula
Cook your peas for about 4 mins in boiling water. Then, transfer your peas to a blender or food processor, and add the mint, fresh water, breastmilk or formula to the puree to create the consistency you want.
Keep any unused puree in the fridge for up to three days, or freeze.
