Pumpkin and carrots soup for babies and toddlers

Category: 

When I prepared this recipe to my baby (10 months old) it was like an epiphany for him. He liked this simple pumpkin soup so much that I can safely say that for two years he has eaten it at least 1 time for a week. This recipe can not be simpler. In fact there are only two ingredients, 3 counting the water :) From this dose you should prepare about 15 cups (240 ml each) that you can freeze and use as needed. Also if you take notice that most unpeeled pumpkins can remain fresh at room temperature for about six months. So if you can set aside a couple of these delicious vegetables, you can serve this soup to your child for almost a whole year.

Pumpkin and carrots soup for babies and toddlers Directions

  2. Bring the water to a boil and turn off the heat as soon as the carrots become soft (the pumpkin should be ready before the carrots). Allow to cool slightly and blend it all with the immersion blender or in a vertical mixer. Divide into containers and put them in the freezer.
