Baby Food: Zucchini and Potato Puree
Summer is the best time to make fresh vegetable purees for your baby. Whether you have your own backyard or container garden, or get your fresh produce from a farmer’s market or CSA, make sure to include your baby in all of the “pickins”!
Zucchini & Potato Puree
- 2 cups zucchini, peeled & cubed
- 2 cups potatoes, peeled & chopped
- 0.66 cups vegetable broth
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 0.5 salt
Boil potatoes until soft. Saute zucchini in olive oil and salt. Cover and cook on medium low until soft. Puree potatoes and zucchini in blender with vegetable broth. Serve warm.
Transfer mixture to a nonfreezer gallon bag. Cut a small hole in the bottom corner of the bag and use it to pour/squeeze the purees into ice cube trays. DO NOT OVERFILL. Only fill each cube up to the sides and not overflowing the sides. Cover each tray with aluminum foil and label. Freeze for at least 24 hours before transferring to quart or gallon freezer bags for long-term storage.
Servings: 16 cubes
