Baby Food Recipe – Butternut Squash & Pear (6-9 Month Baby)

2013-01-09

Butternut squash like pumpkin and sweet potato, is one of the more unusual vegetables now available in supermarkets which are ideal for baby food recipes. It is easily digested, rarely causes allergies, and is a good source of betacarotene and vitamins C and E. Babies like the naturally sweet taste, which combines well with vegetables like peas or broccoli and also goes well with fruits like apple or pear.

Cooking fruit and vegetables in a steamer as in this baby food recipe is one of the best ways of preserving nutrients.

Ingredients:

1 medium butternut squash (about 450g)
1 ripe juicy pear

Method

Peel the butternut squash, cut in half, remove the seeds and chop into pieces.

Steam for about 12 minutes.

Peel, core and chop the pear; add to the steamer and continue to cook for 5 minutes or until the squash is tender.

Puree in a blender and stir in about 6 tablespoons of the water at the bottom of the steamer or as much as is needed to make the puree a suitable consistency for your baby.

    My daughter is 5 months old and I have started her on puree food. I am currently buying this, however, do you have any recipes on how I can make my own baby food for introducing her on solids???

    I received a free bag of rosetto frozen butternut squash ravioli. Do you have any ideas for recipes other than the two I found on the Rosetto website? I have never had it before and would like some ideas. Thanks!

    To me it is a weird combo. I was going to make meatloaf and mashed, but when I got home I realized I had no potatoes. I did however have a butternut squash from a friend. I never make butternut squash, but now it is happily baking next to the meatloaf and I can’t decide if it’s a starch or a veggie. I have :
    beans
    rice
    pasta
    noodles
    corn
    greenbeans
    tomatoes
    cucumbers
    peas
    carrots
    garlic bread
    Thanks
