Beef veggies and rice for babies

I need to get moving on making a few more meals for Harry. He seems to be demolishing food faster than I can make it. He is on three big meals a day now and sometimes an extra one if he is up early. The other day I swear he ate more than me. Anyway, this went down really well, my first attempt at a beef dish. I didn’t puree quite as much as normal, so he is starting to get used to the lumpier texture.

Note: store bought stock generally contains added salt and gluten – in general homemade is best or check for gluten free specified, if required for allergy purposes.

    Just wondering if it is vegetable or chicken stock used in this recipe? The ingredients list calls for salt reduced vegetable stock but Step 2 in the method says chicken stock?
    Love the website!
    Many thanks,

      Hi Kerryn,
      Either salt reduced vegetable or chicken stock would be OK to use. Thank you for the lovely feedback! Happy cooking, Jx
