This is so delicious you will be steaming pears and parsnips to make an adult version of this puree. Hint – it makes a wonderful soup.
I am a big believer in tickling tiny taste buds on a regular basis; you have to keep those little taste buds on their toes and by exposing your baby to a variety of tastes now may spell success at avoiding the picky eating stage.
At nine months of age I challenge parents to add herbs and spices to their baby’s purees, it is such a wonderful way to tickle tiny taste buds and also provide an amazing amount of minerals, vitamins and phytochemicals – yes herbs and spices are full of nutrition.
Pear, Parsnip and Ginger Puree
9 to 12 months
2 medium parsnips, peeled and chopped
3 medium pears, peeled, cored and chopped
¼ tsp ginger
Steam parsnips for 15 to 20 minutes, add pears and steam another 5 to 10 minutes.
Remove from heat, let cool slightly then puree with hand blender or in blender. Add ginger and mix well.
Parsnips are a good source of potassium, fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, and manganese. Pears provide a good source of vitamin C, fiber, vitamin A, niacin and potassium. Ginger provides potassium, magnesium, copper, manganese and vitamin B6.
Hope your little ones enjoy it!
