Asparagus Baby Food

Makes about six 1/4-cup servings
Time 15 min
Featuring in-season, fresh asparagus (preferably organic), this is just right for your little one as is, but combine with puréed potatoes or apples if their tiny taste buds prefer.
Ingredients
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
Method

Steam asparagus in a steamer basket set over 1 inch of water in a large, covered pot until tender, about 10 minutes; reserve cooking water. Purée in a food processor until smooth, adding a tablespoon or 2 of the cooking water, if needed. If desired, push purée through a fine sieve. Cover and chill for up to 3 days, or freeze in tightly sealed containers.
