When cooking baby food purees make sure that the beets is completely peeled because the peel of beets are not easily digestible.
1- 1/2 beetroot
2 – 4 carrots
3 – 1 cup of chick pea soaked in water the night before (or organic canned chick pea)
1. boil the carrots and boil the chick pea in another pot on its own (if using canned chick pea then do not boil) and steamed the beetroot. you can boil everything for less work.
2. When the chick pea is cooked and the rest of the produce too, add some of its own boil water to thin the puree out.
3. Blend everything and add olive oil or other kind of oil or fat.
You can use less beetroot due to the fact that it’s recommended to use small amounts of it. In Denmark it’s recommended that it only takes 1/10 part of the meal until the age of 1 year old.
