We recommend using fresh peas (and not the frozen ones). Open the pods and scrape out the peas from the pod.
Once the vegetables have been washed thoroughly, place fresh peas and carrot dices into a steamer case and place it in a pan with just enough water to slightly show through in the basket. Alternatively, you can use a pressure cooker and with just enough water (that covers the veggies), close the lid and let them steam till 2 whistles.
Make sure that your potato has also been boiled or steamed. Potatoes (need to be washed a bit more to make them absolutely soil-free), so need to be done separately. You need to make sure to steam the vegetables until very tender.
Reserve any leftover water (from peas and carrots) to use for thinning out the puree later. Now, place into your choice of appliance for pureeing and begin pureeing. You can also use a blender to achieve a fine- paste-like consistency. I normally don’t push the vegetables through a sieve/mesh strainer to get rid of any remaining skins. It’s actually fiber so why lose out on that?
Add some salt and pepper and this amazing vegetarian food recipe is ready to be served to your baby who is 6 months and above.
Additionally, you can saute some fresh (and thoroughly washed) broccoli florets in butter and serve it along with the puree to your toddler.
Make sure to tender them by steaming for a couple of minutes. You see, the broccoli chunks can be dipped in the puree, and toddlers enjoy such little food fancies.
