Course: Breakfast/Snack Prep: 10 min Servings: 4

 

Ingredients

½ cup frozen edamame (green soybeans), shelled

1 Tbsp water

½ cup plain whole milk yogurt

Couple mint leaves


Preparation Steps

  1. Cook frozen edamame according to package directions.

  2. Once cooked, add soybeans and mint leaves into a food processor (or blender) with 1 Tbsp water and blend until smooth. Stop the processor every 20 seconds to scrape down the sides.

  3. Add ½ cup plain whole milk yogurt and continue to blend until mixed. Offer to baby via spoon-feeding, preloaded spoon for baby to eat independently, or in a suction bowl so baby can scoop with their little hands. You may also use this puree as a spread on baby's rice crackers or toast.

 

Notes


Suitable: for the whole family from 6 months old.


Age up: If offering this dip to an older child (2+ years) or an adult you may add 1 tsp. preferred sweetener.


Flavor up:

  • You may change flavor by replacing mint leaves for (or mixing it with) a few fresh basil leaves, 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, and/or 1/2 garlic clove.

Boost nutrition:

  • Try adding a tablespoon of flaxseed, chia/hemp seeds. They will add texture, plant protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals.

  • Offer this puree in a suction bowl with roasted/steamed veggies, or fresh cut fruits on the side so baby can have fun dipping it while getting more nutrients.

Involving your children:

  • Under 6+ months: have them watch you prepare; show them how you cook and puree the edamame. Tell them the names of the ingredients as you add them to help build baby's vocabulary.

  • 18+ months: show them how to and let them try to add cooked and cooled edamame to the food processor; show them how to and let them try to press the food processor button; show them how to and let them try to add/mix ingredients.


★Focus on offering single ingredient foods or very simple recipes (1-3 ingredients) at the early stages - the first 1-2 months of starting solids. You may offer more elaborated recipes on a more occasional basis for babies beginning to eat. This will help your baby get familiar with the natural taste of foods but still getting it "pimped-up" in recipes every once in a while. It will also allow you to expose your baby to a few different foods, and make it easier for you to rule out some possible food allergies or intolerance before you start offering preparations with several ingredients regularly.


★ Use a yogurt made with plant milk instead of cow's milk to modify this recipe for a vegetarian baby.
