Potato puree is a great recipe for when you first start weaning your baby. It’s quite a bland flavour, which is ideal for when you start introducing solids into your infant’s diet. Getting your baby used to flavours you will eat as a family later on is easier done sooner rather than later. If you love your spuds then giving your baby them every now and then will give them a taste for them too! The soft smooth puree is the perfect thing to start babies on from very young.
- 2 large potatoes
Peel potatoes and cut into small chunks.
Place chunks into a pan with just enough water to slightly cover potato
Boil until tender, be sure to check on the water level.
Reserve any left over water to use for thinning out the potatoes
Place into your choice of appliance for pureeing and begin pureeing.
Keep a close watch on the potatoes while you are pureeing as they may turn into “wallpaper paste” if pureed too much.
Add the reserved water as necessary to achieve a smooth, thin consistency.
