Vegetarian Recipes for Baby & Yourself

"Whats on the menu bay bay?"


Plain Baby Mush
(For the Mush that wants a "Mix-in", or for the baby that just likes it plain...)

100% Oatmeal
Boiling Water

Cook Oatmeal for 5 minutes. Puree.
Add whatever fruit mix-in you choose.~

Yum Yum Baby Mush

 100% Oatmeal
Boiling Water
Apple Juice or White Grape Juice

*You will need a baby food processer for this recipe. A blender will work, but will leave a slight mess :)

Prepare oatmeal as directed.
Add raisins after the oatmeal has boiled for 2 min.
Boil the remaining 3 min. (If you are using the 1 min quick oats, add the raisins right away)
Add the cinnamon (a loving amount...:)
For a burst of flavor and to help cool the mush, add juice and stir.

*I also add a teaspoon greek yogurt and any type of ripe fruit for spring time.
Strawberries, or any type of berry works really well when ripe for natural sweetener instead of juice.

Saucy Apples

4 Sweet Apples
  2 Pears (If not, sub 2 more apples.)
Cinnamon (A loving amount)
1/8 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1 cup 100% Apple, Pear, or White Grape Juice

Add everything together into a pan. Bring to a simmer. Puree when apples are soft.

(This is a wonderful "mix-in" for the oatmeal above.)

Raspberry and Pomegranate Puree

2 c Raspberries
2 Tbls 100% Pom Juice
1 med banana
3/4 c Plain Yogurt
1/8 Tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract

Puree Raspberries, and strain them. Add berries to everything else and puree.
(For older babies and toddler, make this into a puree and drizzle over fruit chunks)
