This Carrot and Potato Soup is a delicious comfort food for babies 1 year and above. It is perfect for these cold chilly days.
Happy Tuesday everyone..!!! I am excited to introduce one more new category to EasyBabyMeals website today. It is “1 year and above” I was asked to include food recipes for toddlers as well, from quite some time. So here you go, moms. I am also thinking of adding Finger food tips and ideas. I am sure this will make your job of feeding little ones much easier.
All of my recipes for toddlers are again based on my daughter’s needs. Since my daughter is already a toddler now, her needs and preferences about food have changed. She relishes food that her parents eat daily. So I try to incorporate ingredients which make a good wholesome meal. In today’s recipe, I have made a soup with carrot, potatoes, and celery, and to give a flavor have added bay leaf, cumin, and oregano. This soup is a meal in itself, but can be accompanied by other foods. It is good for parents as well.
- 1 medium carrot
- 1 small potato
- 1 stalk of celery
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 bay leaf
- Dash of cumin powder
- Dash of dried oregano
- 1- ½ cup of low sodium organic vegetable/chicken/beef stalk
- ½ teaspoons butter
- Salt to taste
- Wash carrots and celery stalk well. Peel and cut carrots, as well as potatoes into pieces. Cut celery into pieces.
- In a pot add butter, add bay leaf, garlic cloves, oregano and cumin powder and let it splutter a bit.
- Then add all the three vegetables. Saute them for few mins.
- Once they are sautéed well, add vegetable stock to the pot along with salt.
- Bring it to a rolling boil. Then reduce the heat and let it simmer till all the vegetables get tender.
- As the vegetables get tender, remove the pot from the heat. Get rid of the bay leaf.
- After 5 mins, transfer it to a food processor or using a hand mixer, churn this soup into a creamy mixture.
- Transfer it to a serving bowl and serve.
Use homemade or low sodium stock for making thing soup, especially for toddlers.
If the soup gets too thick, add water or stock to achieve required consistency
