Baby Food Recipes – Lovely Lentils (6-9 Month Baby)

Nuvita Biscuits

Adding lentils to a baby puree provides a good source of protein and beta-carotene and also folate, fibre and vitamin C. Orange-fleshed sweet potato is an excellent source of beta-carotene and this lentil recipe makes a sweet, soft, smooth puree that appeals to young babies. This is a simple homemade and healthy lentils recipe for babies.


30g (1oz) butter
125g (4oz) leeks, finely sliced
30g (1oz) celery, chopped
30g (1oz) red pepper, cored, de-seeded and chopped
60g (2oz) red lentils
100g (4oz) 1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped
250g sweet potato, peeled and chopped
1 bay leaf
15 fl oz vegetable stock or water


Melt the butter in a saucepan and saute the leeks for 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the celery, red pepper and carrot and saute for 5 minutes.

Add the lentils, saute for one minute, then add the sweet potato and bay leaf and pour over the stock.

Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until the vegetables and lentils are tender. Remove the bay leaf and blend to a puree.

    I’m taking a trip this fall, by the time I get off work I have 40 minutes before we hve to leave so I’m hoping for a recipe I can mix up in a thermos and it be ready a few hours later when we stop to eat. I don’t like eating at unfamiliar places very often.

    Does anyone have a quick n easy lentil soup recipe – not too spicy or salty so I can puree it up and share a little with my 7 month old son who’s weaning. Thanks!

    Drawn butter is often served with lobster. How is that different than melted butter?
