Homemade Baby Food: Lentil Puree

I combined the recipe from 2 books, the Healthy Home-made Food For Babies & Toddlers by Sara Lewis and Optimum Nutrition for Babies and Young Children by Lucy Burney.

Lentil Puree
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin oil
  • 2 medium size potatoes
  • 1/4 red lentils (bought this from the organic section as NTUC fairprice)
  • 210ml of Formula milk
  1. Saute the onion, carrot, potatoes in a little oil for 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add the red lentils and the formula milk. Bring to a boil
  3. Cover and simmer for 40 minutes until the lentil are very soft.
  4. Puree the mixture until smooth.
  5. Spoon a little into a bowl and served.
  6. Freeze the rest.

Verdict: Baby FAN likes this and can eat quite a lot.
