Even your baby deserves tasty Thanksgiving Dinner Baby Food! Thanksgiving is my favorite meal hands down. I'm not sure what I like better, though, the turkey or the fresh cranberry sauce. I actually started freezing the berries when they're in season so I could eat it all year long. Cranberries are intensely sour, so I added some sweet potato and apple to balance the flavor and give it a little sweetness. This puree has protein from the turkey, beta carotene from the sweet potato and carrots, and vitamin C from the apple. I always trying to expand Kenya's taste buds with spices, so I added the thyme. It was still missing something, though. The cinnamon gives it that last kick that makes this puree smell of a Thanksgiving feast, baby puree style of course.

Thanksgiving is my favorite meal hands down. I'm not sure what I like better, though, the turkey or the fresh cranberry sauce. I actually started freezing the berries when they're in season so I could eat it all year long. Cranberries are intensely...

Ingredients

  • 1 turkey breast tender (about 3/4 pound)
  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 15 baby carrots
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 1/2 apple, peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • pinch ground cinnamon

Preparation

  1. 1. Place turkey in a steamer over boiling water. Sprinkle thyme over it. Cook for 6 minutes.
  2. 2. Add sweet potatoes, carrots and cranberries to the pot with the turkey. Cook another 6 minutes or until turkey is cooked though and vegetables are tender.
  3. 3. Cool turkey for several minutes, so the juices can redistribute and then cut into cubes.
  4. 4. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and puree. Add some of the water from the pot, a tablespoon at a time to make smooth.
  5. 5. Cool and serve.

    Yum! I wonder if this can be made with a food mill? I just bought one, but don’t think it will get the food smooth enough for my little one just starting solids. I’ll have to borrow my Mom’s food processor, I suppose!

    When is a food mill best? Any foods in particular? What stage is the chunky texture ideal?

      If you want to add apple to this I would say you could probably use 1 small apple!

    I made this for my son and he LOVES it. I added in some organic green beans and used organic coconut milk to make it smooth. YUM!
