Tarragon Carrots
Country: France

Carrots are super sweet when pureed, and I added tarragon, an herb typically used in French cooking, which only enhances its naturally sweet flavor. Babies, quite simply, adore their carrots! 

For babies: 6 months +
 
7 organic carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
1/8 Cup fresh organic tarragon, chopped
1/2 Cup water
 
Steam carrots for approximately 15 minutes, until fork tender.
 
Using a hand blender, food processor fitted with steel blade or food mill – puree carrots, tarragon, and 1/4 cup water.

Continue to blend, adding in remaining water as necessary. For older babies, use less water and do not puree as finely.  For adults and toddlers – serve whole.

Soba Noodles with Green Beans
Country: Japan

If you’re like us, you may look for vegetarian dishes to cook for your family to cut down on the amount of meat you’re consuming or it is simply your lifestyle choice.  Whatever the reason this dish couldn’t be easier to make, and you’ll love the taste of the buckwheat Japanese Soba Noodle.  Soba is protein rich, making this a balanced meal for baby.

For babies: 9 months + if using 100% buckwheat noodles and wheat-free tamari
     
1/3 package of dry soba noodles (mix of buckwheat & wheat or 100% buckwheat)
3/4 pound fresh green beans
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon high heat safflower oil
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce or wheat-free tamari
*Please use local/Organic ingredients where possible

Break up soba noodles into roughly 1 to 2 inch lengths as you drop them into the boiling water and cook noodles according to package. Drain and set aside.

Prepare the green beans by trimming the ends and cut on bias to 1/2 inch length.

Steam the green beans for 15-20 minutes until tender.

In a large pan or wok, heat safflower oil on medium heat. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add toasted sesame oil and soy sauce, stir for 30 seconds. Add in green beans and stir until coated. Last, add in cooked noodles. Toss to combine.

Using a hand blender, food processor fitted with steel blade or food mill – puree/grind using water as needed.

For older babies, use less water and do not puree as finely.  For adults and toddlers – serve whole.
