Equipment

  • High-speed blender, food processor or stick blender.

Ingredients

  • 250g / ½ lb (2 cups chopped) Sweet Potato peeled and chopped into 1.5-2cm cubes.
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • ¼ Onion finely chopped
  • 75g (⅓ small broccoli) Broccoli, cut into small florets

  • 15g (½ cup) Spinach
  • 125ml (½ cup) Low Sodium Vegetable Stock (or Water) add more or less depending on desired consistency.

Instructions

  • Add water to a pot, ensuring the steamer basket sits just above the water. Bring to a boil and once boiling add the sweet potato to the basket, cover and allow to steam for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a skillet/fryingpan over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until softened, around 5 minutes.
  • Add the broccoli to the steamer (along with the sweet potato) and steam for 4 mins, add the peas and continue to steam for another 2 minutes until the vegetables are all soft.
  • Add the vegetables along with the vegetable stock (or water) to a blender or food processor and blend to make a puree. Add more liquid if necessary.

Notes

Use homemade vegetable stock or a low sodium stock suitable for babies. Alternatively use water. 
Allow the vegetables to cook slightly before blending. If too hot the steam can  cause the lid to pop. 
For a more textured puree/mash. Add all the vegetables to a bowl and mash together, adding a little stock if needed. Remember it is important to move through textures fairly quickly to allow your little one to develop the skills needed to manage more complex textures.
