I try to make a lot of Smiley's baby food and this is what she inhaled last night for supper:
Here is the recipe:
from the Organic Baby and Toddler cookbook ~ Lizzie Vann
(although, I have made a few of my own changes so it is not exactly the same)
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 small onion, finely chopped
1 small carrot, peeled and finely chopped
small pinch of parsley
½ cup organic diced tomatoes (drained unless you need it less chunky)
2 Tbs water
1 Tbs small pasta shapes
Heat the oil in a small pan over medium heat. Add in the onion and carrot, cook until soft (about 5 mins).
Add the parsley, tomatoes and water. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, sirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
Meanwhile cook the pasta according to the directions on the box.
For a chunkier meal, roughly mash tomato mixture and add in the pasta.
For a smoother mixture, blend it up (I prefer my magic bullet) tomatoes and pasta together, adding water as necessary.
* I made it middle of the ground ~ not to chunky, but not too smooth.*
Smiley sure did!
I think she's full
