Peas for Your Sweet Pea

This was Jules' first green veggie - again, she could not get enough. She LOVES peas! She eats better than her mother! This puree takes just minutes and is so much prettier than the peas in the jar...it should be bright green, not drab in color. I used one 10 oz bag of frozen peas, which made this all the more easy for me!

Makes 1 1/2 cups

Bring approximately 1 inch of water to boil in a small pot. Put peas in the pot and bring back up to a boil. Cover and steam until bright green and tender, 5-7 minutes for frozen or 3 minutes for fresh. Drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking.

Puree peas in a food processor until smooth. Add breast milk or formula to the pea puree to a consistency that your baby can handle.

This will keep in the fridge for 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. I split this and used 1/2 for those 3 days and froze the other half for another time.

  1. Brooke, I LOVE that you are adding some baby food recipes in here! Sydney is just starting with bananas, but will be trying some veggies and other fruits soon! You are inspiring me to try to make her own food, which is something that I never did with the other two but always wanted to, just didn't know how and didn't have the time to look everything up! Thanks for sharing, and please continue to do so!!!!

  2. Yay! I'm so glad I've inspired you. Truly, it's so easy...everything I've made for her so far is just steamed or roasted and then pureed! Really, no recipes required. So, even with 3 little ones, I know you'll find time. :) It's been a lot of fun for us having her try all the new things I've made. Have fun, let me know if you have any questions!
