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 Dinner Baby Food
- Place turkey in a steamer over boiling water. Sprinkle thyme over it. Cook for 6 minutes.
- 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.
- Cool turkey for several minutes, so the juices can redistribute and then cut into cubes.
- 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.
- Cool and serve.
