Ingredients

Method

  • ½ butternut squash (about 400 g/14 oz), peeled, deseeded + cubed
  • 60 g/2¼ oz frozen peas
  • 100 g/3½ oz no-salt + no-sugar canned sweetcorn, drained

Ingredients

Method

  1. Steam or boil the butternut squash in a saucepan over a medium heat for 10 minutes until almost cooked.
  2. Add the peas + sweetcorn + cook for 5 minutes more until everything is tender. In a food processor or using a hand blender, purée with 5 tablespoons boiled water until smooth.

Swap This For That

If you're in a rush, swap the butternut squash for carrots which are quicker to chop!

Handy Tips

Adding some baby rice makes the texture thicker + grainier for more confident eaters
