Ingredients

Method

  • 1 courgette (about 150 g/5½ oz), halved lengthways and cut into 5 mm/¼ inch thick slices

Ingredients

Method

  1. Steam or boil the courgette in a saucepan over a medium heat for 8–10 minutes until completely tender.
  2. Purée in a food processor, or using a hand blender, until smooth.

Fun for little ones

A courgette doubles up as a handy microphone. Why not have a sing to your little one or interview them about how their day is going?!

Swap this for that

Once your little one is used to plain courgette, why not try adding a pinch of basil or oregano to mix it up?

Top tip!

You can thin all the purées using your baby’s usual milk, if you prefer!
