Potato, Leek and Broccoli
Broccoli, although a good source of vitamins, has a strong flavour so it is best used in combination with other vegetables when making your own baby food.
Potato has a mild taste making it very suitable for young babies. Do not use a food processor to puree it though, or it will just end up as a sticky goo!
- 1 leek (60-75g) - use the white part only, washed and sliced
- 175g potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 125g broccoli
Put the potatoes in a saucepan with enough water to cover them. Bring to the boil, turn down the heat and cook until tender.
Cook the other vegetables in a separate pan until they are tender - about 10-15 minutes.
Drain the vegetables, saving some of the water to mix with the puree.
Mash the potato or push through a sieve. You can blitz the other vegetables in a baby food blender. Mix everything together with a little of the cooking water until smooth.
NOTE: This amount will make about 3-4 servings and can be kept in the fridge, covered, for up to 48 hours or it can be frozen until required.
