A lovely puree recipe from the chefs at Organix to help introduce a new spice to your baby
From 4-6 months
For stage 1/first weaning & getting started
3-5 portions depending on appetite
Suitable for freezing
• 2 carrots
• 50g red lentils
• 1 tsp garam masala
1. Top and tail and peel the carrot, and slice up into 1cm slices
2. Rinse the red lentils then place in a saucepan with the carrots, cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes until both the carrots and lentils are tender
3. Blend together with the garam masala until smooth
This puree is a more filling meal for your little ones, as the lentils provide lots of healthy protein. The garam masala introduces your baby to new flavours and a spice without heat. This puree can be watered down into a soup, or it can be enjoyed cold as a dip with crudities or Organix carrot sticks.
For babies from 7-9 months you can serve this with raw grated carrot or rice cakes.
For babies from 10 – 11 months you can serve this with raw carrot sticks or pitta bread strips.
