This Parsnip and pumpkin puree recipe is a simple course which you can give to babies who have recently started eating solids. Typically, parsnips & pumpkins are non-allergenic to babies so this puree is safe to give to little ones encountering their very first foods. It is best to be cautious and follow appropriate measures when you are introducing any new food for the first time.
Some parents don’t like making their own baby food because they are under the impression that it is too time consuming, but making your own baby food is not something you need to devote hours to. It’s something you can literally do in 5 minutes and it is also cheaper than buying pre-made baby food at the supermarket. Also, it’s nice to know exactly what’s in the food your baby is eating.
This puree is very smooth and cooks quickly which makes it easy for you to make. What I like about this recipe is you get to customize your purees to the definite consistency your baby needs.
- Instead of thinning the purees with water, you can add in breast milk.
Parsnip and Pumpkin Puree Ingredients
- 1 parsnip
- 1 cup of fresh pumpkin
- tiny pinch ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp chopped fresh chives
How to make Parsnip and Pumpkin Puree
- Peel and chop up the parsnip and pumpkin.
- Steam or boil the pumpkin and parsnip in a little water until it’s nice and tender.
- Once tender, drain the water and then blend well in a food processor. If you don’t have a food blender it is also possible to mash the food together; this will produce a thicker consistency which is better for older toddlers.
- After everything is mashed or blended together stir in the nutmeg and chives.
- Let the food cool to the desired temperature and serve!
