Italian-style Vegetable Purée
This recipe is great for using any vegetables that you have available. For babies who have just started the weaning process, try a combination of tomatoes, courgettes, and a little baby rice, as the flavours in this recipe may be too intense. Try this combination when your baby has been eating solids for at least a month. Any leftovers can be turned into a tasty pasta sauce.
