Mr 7 month old isn’t a fan of food. I have no idea how on earth we are related!?! However, I did manage to get a little pot full of this lentil goodness into him. Truth be told, if he wasn’t going to eat it I was! It’s yummy! I used to make this for my 5 year old when he was a baby and it was one of his faves.
I would thin this out with a little water or stock after blending to turn it into a hearty soup for the rest of the family.
Lentils can sometimes be hard for some babies to digest so be sure to include all the veggies stated as this helps with the digestion process. A little spinach would be a great addition and also aid the digestion of lentils.
It breaks down quite a bit so is perfect for older babies on mash and coarser meals. Pulverise as much or as little as your baby desires.
I use a salt reduced stock concentrate for all my sons meals. I use 1/4 of what is suggested in the EDC. I leave the skin on the vegetables unless stated.
This made 10 small pots of puree. I freeze them until needed. You can double this recipe if desired. Just be sure not add water past the “max” mark on your bowl.
