Organic Baby Food! Sweet Potato Puree

Sweet Potato Puree

Sweet-Potato-Mashed-w_Breast-Milk

Sweet Potato Puree has been a long-time first baby food. This particular recipe was inspired from the sweet potato puree recipe in the children’s cooking book entitled Start Fresh by Tyler Florence. This cookbook is absolutely amazing. I recommend grabbing a copy for it merges infant, babies, toddlers, children and adult recipes that cut down on your cooking time without cutting down on the flavor.

To make sweet potato puree… Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Cut sweet potatoes into 1 inch chunks. Place potatoes in the pot. Steam them for about 15 minutes. You want to potatoes to be tender. Transfer potatoes (and some warm water from your boiled water) to a blender. Puree until is smooth. Here is the extra trick- add a few squeezes of lemon for additional flavor.

Once you have your puree made, you have options with recipes:
1. Serve your child in the pure form as pureed sweet potato.
2. Use the same steps as preparing the potato puree but add in 1-2 pears for a combination of these two sweet and wonderful tastes.
3. Sweet Potato Pancakes:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Mix Flour (2 cups), sugar (1/4 cup), baking powder (2 teaspoons) and baking soda (1/2 teaspoon) until it is all blended. Use another bowl to mix 3 eggs, buttermilk (2 cups), and butter (1 tablespoon). Stir wet mixture into the flour mixture. Stir in as much sweet potato puree as you want. Heat a large skillet or pan and begin making pancakes. You can also stick blueberries in as you make the pancakes for an extra kick of fruit.

Pumpkin ALERT** I recently tried to add some pureed pumpkin as well and it was awesome!!
