Red Pepper Baby Food Puree

Red Pepper Baby Food Puree

Red pepper is a very popular vegetable and people love to eat it for its diverse health benefits. With this delicious and healthy puree, babies will enjoy the flavor of roasted red peppers with just the right amount of salt and turmeric. This recipe is fast and easy to prepare. It is on the go and perfect for babies who enjoy pureed food on a daily basis.

 

Servings: 2 to 3 servings

 

Ingredients:

 

1 medium-sized red pepper, seeds removed and chopped into small pieces. (I used two peppers)

 

1 small yellow onion, chopped into small pieces. (I used half of a small onion)  (You can use 1/4 – 1/2 cup raw baby food peas for this recipe which will reduce the amount needed by another 1/4 cup.)  Add a pinch of turmeric powder to make it yellow if you’d like it a little brighter color.  Add salt to taste.

 

1-2 tablespoons of water (to make it more gravy like) or milk (warm or cold will do)  Freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice of your choice.

Directions:

Cleaning the chopper : Take the chopper apart and clean it with a wet napkin. Rinse & dry thoroughly before putting it back together.  The blades are rusting if you don’t clean it often enough.

 

Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor, set on low speed, and pulse until everything is pretty blended but not completely smooth. Pour through a strainer into a bowl to remove any pieces that are stuck on the blades of the chopper. If your blender doesn’t have a strainer, use a mesh sieve.

 

Put the baby food puree in canning jars or storage containers and seal it with lids.  Store the jars in the fridge.  It will provide a few days shelf life before you will need to take out and reheat it.

 

Step-by-Step Photos:

In a chopper, blend 1/4 cup of peas with 1/4 teaspoon of salt until as fine as you would like it to be.  Put the chopper back together and keep it clean.

 

Repeat the process for the other half of the onion.  Add 1/2 cup peas to both halves of the onion in a chopper, and pulse until everything is fine chopped.

 

Add all ingredients in chopper to make baby food puree (except water).  Pulse until everything is blended well but without completely making it smooth.  Strain through strainer or mesh strainer to remove any chunks that are stuck to chopper blades.

Pour into jars, seal with lids, and store in refrigerator for up to several days (my jars were good for 3 days when stored in refrigerator).  Warm up baby food puree by adding a little bit of hot water or warm milk to it in the jar.  Or if your baby isn’t used to hot food, let it cool down first before giving it out.

 

Baby Food Puree Variations:  Add some chopped peanuts or cashews for babies over 9 months old.  Add some sugar/honey to make sweet baby food puree.
