Weaning recipe: Apple & beetroot purée
- Preparation and cooking time
- Makes about 300g
Before moving your baby to solids, get them used to new flavours like this apple and beetroot purée. An ice cube tray is ideal for freezing portions
- STEP 1
Put the beetroot into a steamer over simmering water and cook for around 15 mins, add the apple and cook for a further 8 mins until both are tender.
- STEP 2
Blitz to a purée in a food processor. Add a splash of milk (or water from the saucepan), if necessary, to create a smooth texture. You may need to scrape the sides of the bowl a few times while blitzing to get a smooth consistency throughout.
- STEP 3
Serve one portion and divide the rest between small containers or ice cube trays and freeze.
