This Red Pepper Baby Food Puree is a smooth, creamy and naturally sweet puree that is loaded with folate, vitamin A, B6 and C.
This is one of those easy and delicious purees that I would have never thought to make because it isn't found on any grocery store shelf, yet you can make it at the drop of a hat and it can be served from 4 months of age on.
And look at that amazing bright red color!
How yummy does that look?
Some would think that Red Bell Peppers would be an unusual choice for a starter baby puree but given that it is loaded with folate, vitamin A (from beta-carotene), vitamin B6 and vitamin C and when paired with a little white potato has a creamy, almost sweet taste to it makes it a perfect starter puree for any baby.
This recipe is just the beginning of some serious yummy dishes to come. Add some spices, yogurt, fruit, veggies, grains or even meat and you will have an endless rotation of great meals for your growing little one without all the fuss.
