1 chopped leek,
1 medium carrot, peeled and cubed
1 medium parsnip, peeled and cubed
8oz (1 cup) broccoli florets
3 tbsp regular oatmeal (porridge oats)
To prepare the leek, remove the tough and fibrous root end and take off the thick outer leaves. Trim the rest of the leaves.
Cut the leek in half lengthwise and wash both halves thoroughly by 'swishing' them around in a bowl of water.
Chop the leek finely, using the white AND the green parts.
Put all of the ingredients (including the oatmeal) into a saucepan and JUST COVER with water.
Bring the mixture to a boil.
Quickly reduce the heat and simmer gently for around 10-15 minutes, until all the vegetables are fork tender.
Place in a food processor and puree until smooth.
For an added burst of flavour, stir in a couple of teaspoons of freshly chopped herbs (chives or parsley are yummy).
Serve to baby and freeze any leftovers immediately.
Once your baby is enjoying single ingredient vegetable purees, try this tasty and satisfying recipe which uses oats to meet his 'growing' appetite.
