Adventures in Baby Purees: Lentils & Sweet Potatoes

                  [pictures from age 8 mo] 

Smooth, sweet, & creamy, this lentil and sweet potato puree is packed with protein and a good source of iron. With a savory hint from the sautéed leek, it is the perfect balance between sweet and savory. Our little guy is digging it right now! It also makes a fairly big batch so I have lots left over to freeze without needing to double the recipe! 

Baby Food Details:

Age: 10 months

Recipe: Annabel Karmel’s “Lovely Lentils” recipe from her book “Top 100 Baby Purees” 

Likes/Dislikes: He is still not a fan of texture so I try to keep things smooth & pureed. He much prefers sweet over any strong onion or garlic flavor so I halved the amount of leek called for by this recipe. The sweet potatoes give it a lovely sweetness.

Happy adventuring!
