I have a fun little post coming up for next week's Tiny Tot Tuesdays post, and it's regarding these green beans, so stay tuned for that!
In the meantime, here's the super quick and easy recipe to make some green bean puree for your baby. Hopefully your child loves these as much as Bradley does. Green beans are a great source of Vitamin K, which helps the blood clot. It's very essential for growing babies, especially for when they start crawling and walking! You have to make sure those inevitable boo-boos get healed as quickly as possible! Can you tell he loved them?
Makes 12 servings
- 12 oz. organic green beans
- Purified water
Heat a large pot of water to boiling. Snap the ends off of the green beans. Rinse the green beans under cold water.
Add the green beans to the water and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until tender.
Drain green beans and add to a food processor. Add a couple tablespoons of purified water and process until smooth. Add more water, if necessary, to get to your desired consistency.
Allow to cool then serve to your baby with a spoon. I recommend adding some breast milk or formula to the pureed green beans as well...this thins out the green beans and adds a flavor they already know and enjoy.
If saving for a later date, pour it into storage cups to freeze or refrigerate. You can refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze for 30 days. Make sure you label your green beans! Once you are ready to serve, heat the refrigerated or frozen green beans up in the microwave and allow to cool to just warmer than room temperature. Add breast milk or formula to thin it out.
*Consult with your pediatrician before feeding your baby solid foods and to see what amount/type of food you should give your child.
