Sometimes I wonder what life would have been like if I had a computer when my  kids were growing up.

On one hand, I would have loved reading blogs like Sissy and Marley, from moms that gave me good advice about how to make organic baby food, and  how to add spices to my kids food, and  warn me about what pacifiers had poisons in them like BPAs, Phthalates, and PVCs….

But on the other hand, I can just imagine baby food encrusted on my laptop  as I breast fed and tried to type at the same time, or g-d forbid getting engrossed in a Neiman Marcus online super sale while my toddlers were pulling each other’s hair out….

Fast forward to 2011!

What do you think of this baby food recipe?? Its actually a healthy  recipe for babies who should be enjoying their vegetables. Mint is also said to help toddlers with gassy issues. Why not introduce babies 8 months and older to spices like garlic – minced or powdered,basil, rosemary, dill, oregano, lemon zest, ginger, cinnamon
mint or nutmeg? Of course ask your doctor first, and check out a variety of great baby food cookbooks out there such as this book by Annabel Karmel. Top 100 Baby Purees: 100 Quick and Easy Meals for a Healthy and Happy Baby

If you are a grandma, why not whip up a batch of this gourmet baby food, pour into a sterilized jars, maybe wrap with a little ribbon and drop it off to your daughter or daughter in law’s house?  Here is one healthy baby food recipe to try:

PEA PUREE WITH MINT

Ingredients: Organic Peas {fresh or frozen} + Fresh Mint

Fill a pot with a few inches of water. Place peas in a steamer basket and insert into pot. Bring to a boil. Cover. Steam the peas until tender, about 3 minutes (thawed frozen peas) to 5 minutes (fresh or frozen peas). Remove the basket and allow peas to cool. Reserve the cooking liquid for pureeing. Puree peas and 2 small mint leaves in a food processor until smooth. Thin to desired consistency using reserved liquid.

Kitchen Notes:

Store in refrigerator in an airtight container. Or fill ice cube trays with puree, cover and freeze. Transfer cubes to freezer bags. Label and date. Thaw cubes overnight in refrigerator.

Refrigerate up to 3 days

Freeze up to 3 months
