Sweet Potato Kale Baby Food

Palmer tester. Palmer approved!

When doing our registry for Palmer, Bryant was really eager to make her baby food one day and that day has finally come! We registered for the Babycook Beaba and we LOVE it. It’s so easy to use, simple cleanup and making baby food might seem like a daunting task but it’s pretty simple, can save you a bunch of money and when your making it there’s no extra additives for your sweet baby to consume.

We are so excited for our local produce farm, Wiltse’s to be in season this fall for Palmer to enjoy but in the meantime we are trying different fruit/veggie combos to expose Palmer to a variety.

So far we have tried:

1.sweet potato

2. Butternut squash

3. Broccoli and kiwi

4. Green beans and apple

5. Zucchini and apple

6. Sweet potato and banana

7. Apple, Kiwi and Strawberry

Her favorite by far is the most recent concoction- sweet potato and kale! She also really loved the green beans and apple. We joke that Palmer one day is going to be at a friends house and say, “Umm.. do you have any garlic salt? Ginger?” As we are already exposing her to some of those different types of flavors. Ginger is a great addition as it adds that extra little bit of flavor and bite.

Simple easy steps to work the Baby Beaba below with the recipe.

Sweet Potato Kale Baby Food

Ingredients:

  • 1 small sweet potato peeled and diced small
  • 3/4 cup chopped kale
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 dashes of powdered ginger (could add fresh)
  • Nursery water (to steam and to add after mixture has steamed)

Directions:

  1. Chop vegetables up to fit the size of the Beaba basket.

2. Fill up basket to the top with half and half of the veggies. You might have extra leftover.

3. Fill up Breaba to 3 mark with nursery water. Most items you will be steaming will be at the 3. But the manual directs you otherwise for more delicate fruits etc. pour the amount of water measured into the small hole under the top.

4. Put the measuring blender cup onto the machine, then put the basket inside and press the big white button! The machine knows based on the amount of water you put in how long to steam it for. It will beep twice when it’s finished steaming.

5. When the machine beeps twice it is ready. Take out the basket using the little spatula tool it comes with as it will be hot. Dump the veggies into the clear bottom cup where it will be puréed. The water from the steam will collect there allowing for the mixture to blend quite easily. If the consistency is too thick, add more nursery water.

6. Let cool in a Tupperware container and use it for the week for your little one! You can also use an ice cube tray to save it for later as well in the freezer.

 

Palmer really couldn’t get enough!! Hope your baby feels the same way 🙂
