Steamed Spinach Baby Food Recipe
 
Vegetable Baby Food Recipes for (10 months+) Babies
 
Recipe Ingredients :
1/2 lb baby spinach leaves
 
Recipe Instructions :
1. Thoroughly cleanse fresh spinach and pick out damaged leaves.
2. Steam in a pot with a steamer basket insert (water should just peek through the holes of the basket).
3. Leaves will shrink and appear wilted when done.
(DO NOT USE COOKING WATER TO PUREE.)
4. Drain and puree spinach in blender or food processor.
5. Add fresh water until mixture is of the desired consistency.
(Nitrate risk. Do not serve homemade spinach to an infant under 10 months old. Spinach puree MUST be immediately eaten, frozen or stored in the refrigerator. Studies done on spinach and nitrates in particular have shown that with improper storage and preparation, the nitrate levels may actually increase. Proper preparation and immediate use or storing via freezer method will help eliminate this risk in leafy vegetables).
