Lentil Stew puree January 23 2014, 0 Comments

My kids both loved this when they were weaning. Introduce this from 7 months as the lentils can be hard for smaller babies to digest. This is an excellent (and cheap) source of protein and iron.

1 small onion finely chopped

1 stick of celery finely chopped

2 medium carrots peeled and chopped

1 small Sweet potato peeled and chopped

50g Split red lentils

1 Tblsp Olive oil or vegetable oil

400ml baby vegetable stock

Sautee the onion, celery and carrots in the oil until softened. Add the sweet potato and red lentils to the pan and pour in the stock. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 20 minutes. Puree in a blender.

The above ingredients will make approximately 5 pouch servings.
