5 easy, healthy homemade baby foods that can all be made in just 20 minutes!
Start with the barley. Follow your package directions to cook the barley then drain and puree, adding extra cooking liquid as needed to get it to the right consistency.
Next, steam the chopped asparagus in a steamer basket for 5-7 minutes, until very tender. Use an immersion or regular blender to puree it up. The asparagus can be stringy so be sure to scrape down your bowl/container as you puree to make sure it gets nice and smooth for baby.
Cook your edamame while the asparagus and barley cooks. Add the frozen, shelled edamame to a small pot of boiling water and cook for 6-7 minutes, until very tender. Drain and puree, adding extra cooking liquid if needed, to get it to a smooth consistency.
Next, puree the blueberries with a blender, being sure to scrap the sides well several times so you don’t get blueberry skins stuck throughout the puree mixture.
The mango also just requires a run through the blender to puree it until it’s nice and smooth.
I have always used and highly recommend a hand-held immersion blender for making homemade baby food. That link is for the newer version of what I use and love.
