Spinach puree
« on: September 06, 2011, 02:04:57 am »
My DD is on solids and I just started making my own baby food. I purred spinach and it didn't go so well. But she loves the Earths Best Spinach and potato. Did I do something wrong? Should I mix veggies together?

What was it like?  I always just steamed the spinach then pureed it.  I don't think I added any more water or maybe just a tiny bit since it was always so wet from steaming.  DS1 always liked sweet potato and spinach together.  I froze all my baby food in ice cube trays and always made the spinach quantities smaller.

Mine always preferred it mixed.  Like pp I oven baked sweet potato.  I then streamed the spinach and squeezed the water out and sauteed it in butter then blended it together with a little milk.  I always made a batch and then froze it.  HTH x

I add spinach to fruit to sweeten it a little bit - apples or pears usually ;)

I put a mountain of spinach in a curry yesterday (it just disappears doesn't it?) and DS enjoyed it.  Does your LO really need it puréeing at one year old?  Maybe just try it as a finger food.

Oh yeah at a year old, I wouldn't bother with the pureeing!  Not sure where you live but you can buy in the UK frozen chopped spinach which is great to add to sauces, try in a cheesy pasta sauce or a curry?
