My little girl’s first food was bland store bought baby peas. She did not like them in the least. After making the decision to make my little one’s food myself, I found many websites with baby food recipes encouraging the use of spices. That thought had never crossed my mind previously. If you are nursing your baby, he or she has already been tasting the spices and flavors of your food.
In an effort to spice things up a bit for little London, I tried my own recipe and she GOBBLED them up! My 3 year old also sat like a baby bird eating these off of a spoon.
1 lb bag of frozen early harvest petite peas
1tsp minced dried onion
1tsp jarred minced garlic with water from jar
*Defrost bag of peas
*Add all ingredients to food processor blend until smooth
*Add breast milk, formula, or water to dilute to appropriate consistency for your baby
*Portion and freeze extras
I used the jarred garlic and the dehydrated onion to 0btain flavor without heat. You can also use fresh if you’d like, just saute them first, omitting any oil or butter.
