Roasted Butternut Squash for Baby
After about a month of eating solids, I wanted to start introducing more flavors to my son. Butternut squash is a great first food, and here it is roasted with a little olive oil and thyme for a tasty puree that any baby will love! Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Instead of mashing the squash in a bowl, you can place it in a food processor and puree it with a little breast milk, formula, or salt-free vegetable stock.
To freeze for later, fill an ice cube tray with the puree. Freeze until solid, about 2 hours, then remove cubes from the tray and place in a freezer bag. To defrost, place in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds, or as needed.
