Make It

Baby Food Edition


Prep time: 15 minutes
Yields: approximately 16 ounces

I bought a bag of carrots for $.78 at the grocery store.

Rinse under cool water.

Remove ends.

Peel the skin off the carrots with a vegetable peeler (even though a knife is shown in the above picture, I did actually use a peeler.)

Cut the carrots into three equal sections

Place in a steamer.

Cook the crap out of them until extremely mushy. I steamed my carrots for about 10 minutes.

Load carrots into your food processor and allow to cool for a few mintes. (Note: if you're using breast milk, it's important the carrots aren't too hot, as the heat can alter the nutrients in your milk.)

Blend carrots, adding milk or formula to reach desired consistency.

Behold the beauty of these carrots. I wasn't using flash so you can't fully appreciate the rich orange color but it was awesome.

Throw in your OXO Tot baby blocks and store in the fridge and/or freezer.
