Hi girls, I thought it might be a nice idea to start a thread where us ladies who make our own baby food can post our recipes.
Here's one for Caribbean pork casserole I made for my LO tonight:
Lean pork cut into cubes
1 small onion diced
1 carrot diced
1 small sweet potato, diced
1 courgette, sliced
Half a mango, chopped
A tin of chopped tomatoes
200ml pure unsweetened apple juice (or water)
Juice of half a lime (optional)
Half a teaspoon of ground ginger (optional)
A little bit of olive oil
Brown the onion in a sauce pan with the olive oil.
Add the pork and cook till it turns golden
Add the carrot, sweet potato, courgette, mango, tomatoes and Apple juice/water and bring to the boil.
Reduce heat to simmer and add the lime juice and ginger bit by bit to taste
Simmer until all the vegetables are cooked.
Use a blender to puree for younger babies or leave lumpy for older ones
1 small chicken breast, cubed
About 5 dried apricots, chopped
1 pint (300ml) baby vegetable stock or boiling water
A small red pepper, roughly chopped
A small onion, chopped
A small sweet potato, chopped
A small clove of garlic, crushed
About half a teaspoon of each of ground cumin, cinnamon and corriander
Optional- a squeeze of lemon or lime juice
A table spoon of olive oil
Heat the oil in a sauce pan and then brown the chicken.
Add the pepper, onion, sweet potato and garlic and spices to the pan and cook until soft.
Add the stock/water and bring to the boil
Reduce to a simmer and add the apricots and lemon/lime juice.
Continue to simmer for about 30 mins or until the liquid has reduced to a nice sauce.
