Carrot puree

They might not actually make you see in the dark, but this carrot puree recipe is still bursting with vitamin C, suitable for first weaning

  • 350g carrot, peeled


  • Step 1

    Chop carrots and put them in a saucepan and pour over just enough boiling water to cover. Cover with a lid and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until soft.

  • Step 2

    Drain the carrots and place in a blender, adding some of the water from the cooking liquid, then puree until very smooth.

  • This is suitable for the first week of weaning, so needs to be very smooth with no lumps.
  • Add liquid as necessary – puree should be thick and not too liquid.
