Growing up my mother made the most heavenly yellow squash dish that was so simple, yet mouthwateringly delicious. I still make it for myself and sometimes I add steamed carrots like I did in this recipe. There are only 3 ingredients, but when they’re packed with this much flavor, why would you need anything else?
We used these to make this recipe: Cuisinart DLC-2 Mini Prep Plus Food Processor
Yellow Squash and Carrot Puree
- 1 cup chopped carrots
- 1 cup chopped yellow squash
- 1 tablespoon chopped onions
- Place the carrots in a steamer pot over boiling water for 2 minutes.
- Add the onion and yellow squash and continue to cook for 4 more
- minutes or until vegetables are fork tender.
- Place the ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth.
- Cool and serve.
- *Place in Baby Cubes and freeze.
Making this for my six month old son we will see if he likes it thank you so much for the delicious recipe
I have used this recipe to great success in a different way then what I think was intended. I make this puree and place a piece of fish or chicken cooked simply on top of it. It is a simple and delicious supper. Use the puree like mashed potatoes is the idea. I do not have children– substituting the puree for mashed vegetables makes for a fantastic meal for adults.
You can freeze baby food for up to 3 months!
How long will this recipe stay good for in the freezer? My daughter is 2 weeks old and we want to get a head start with our garden veggies for her.
Hi Maggie! In general, when your baby is first starting out on solid foods, you should only introduce 1 solid food at a time, and serve that for about 3-4 days to watch out for any allergic reactions. After he has tasted several foods with success, then you can start mixing them together. So a 5 month old could eat this puree if it is thinned out enough, and if he has already tried yellow squash and carrots on their own with no negative reactions. Hope this helps!
Hi, I’m introducing my 5 month old baby boy to pureed foods. Loved a bunch of your recipes, but was wondering if there was a way to tell for what ages these were appropriate. Thanks!
