Does anyone else feel the same nervous anticipation as I do when trying new foods with their bub? Over the past couple of weeks I have started introducing some legumes and different grains to George and varying the texture of his food. So far so good! I mixed some of this lentil and veggie mash with some pumpkin puree for George and to my delight he loved it.
Tip: To make a more creamy/smoother mash – puree half of the mixture, mash the remaining mixuture and combine together.
Nutrition Note: When buying canned lentils or legumes look out for ‘no added salt’ varieties.Join us on Facebook for other foodie bits and pieces.
- 1 cup tinned brown lentils (no added salt), drained and rinsed
- 2 cups pick 'n' mix vegetables, chopped
- (Pick 'n' Mix Options: pumpkin, carrot, potato, sweet potato, spinach, zucchini, peas)
Steam the vegetables for 5-15 minutes (cooking time will depend on what vegetables you have chosen) or until they are soft. -
Place the cooked vegetables in a bowl with the lentils and mash (or puree) until you have your desired texture. -
Serve the mash on its own or mixed with other puree vegetables to get a smoother/creamier texture. -
