Meat & Three Veg Puree + Quinoa Mash

{We created this recipe for the Philips Avent 4-in-1 healthy baby food maker.}

Total 30 minutes

Steam 20 minutes

Makes: 1½ cups (360g)

Freezable, Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Egg Free, Dairy Free

Nutrition Note: Some babies enjoy being spoon fed beyond their first tastes and this hearty, iron-rich meal will satisfy both their growing needs and hungry appetites.


  • 120g diced lamb or beef
  • ½ medium sweet potato (approx. 170g)
  • 1 small zucchini (approx. 120g)
  • 2-3 broccoli florets
  • Cooked quinoa, to serve (quinoa mash option)


  1. Remove any skin and fat off the meat. Cut the meat into roughly 1cm size cubes.
  2. Wash the broccoli and zucchini. Wash and peel the sweet potato. Cut the vegetables into roughly 1 cm size cubes.
  3. Remove the lid of the Philips Avent 4-in-1 healthy baby food maker jar and place in all of the ingredients. Replace the lid and lock in the right position.
  4. Remove the lid of the water tank and pour in water until it reaches the ‘20 min’ level.
  5. Replace the lid of the jar and lock the lid in the right position. Press to lock the 4-in-1 healthy baby food maker jar in the steam position.
  6. Set the steam time to 20 minutes. It will start steaming and stop automatically after 20 minutes.
  7. Turn the steam button back to the ‘off’ position.
  8. Flip the jar over.
  9. Place the jar on the main unit. Rotate it clockwise to lock it into the blend position.
  10. Blend 2 or 3 times for 15 seconds each, until the desired consistency is reached.

Follow instructions above to step 8. and then drain the cooking water from the jar before processing the meat and vegetables. For a more textured consistency, process less by blending 2 or 3 times for around 5 seconds for a mash/chunky consistency, alternatively use a fork to mash the meat and vegetables. Stir through 1 or 2 tablespoons of cooked quinoa when serving a portion to your baby for added texture and nutrition.

Storage: the puree/mash can be kept in an airtight container in a Philips Avent fresh food storage pot in the fridge for 1-2 days. Alternatively, you can freeze in individual portions for up to 2 months.
