Awww my big boy is growing soooo fast!!! Super smooth purees are not his favorites anymore.. now he wants some texture!
The mix of sweet potato and lentils is just awesome! What a great taste! I had to stop myself from eating his puree, hahaha!!
Lentils are amazing, they have such a high protein content compared to it weight. (It’s also super cheap, but super nutritious!) Sweet potatoes are awesome too, it’s a very good source of fibers and add a sweet taste to the dish (or puree in this case)
In my house… WE LOVE BEANS! Every kinds, lentils, chickpeas, black beans, edamame… ALL of them! It’s so versatile, cheap, delicious and you can use them in all kind of dishes even desserts, awwww I’m such a fan!
8 servings (of 1/3 cup)
* 1 cup cooked red lentils
* 1 medium size sweet potato
* fresh water
* Wash, peel and cut the potato. Steam cook it for 7-8 minutes or until it’s tender. (I prefer steam cooking over regular boiling water)
* Put the cooked potato and cooked lentils in the food processor. Mix.
* You can add a small amount of fresh water to adjust the texture of the puree.
* An effective method of preservation is freezing. The ice cube trays are very useful, inexpensive and reusable as many times as we wish. Simply place the puree in the trays to freeze it and once it is frozen, removed from the mold and put the cubes in a freezer container. Don’t forget to write the date on it. you can keep it for at least 3 months.
