How to make this Sweet Potato & Green Bean Baby Food Recipe
1. Peel and cut the sweet potato
Wash the sweet potato, then remove the skin with a potato peeler and cut the sweet potato into small cubes.
2. Wash and cut the green beans
Cut the ends off if they are stringy and slice the green beans in half.
3. Steam the vegetables
This can be done in a steaming tray or a baby food maker (our preferred method). Steam the vegetables for about 15-20 minutes!
4. Blend into a puree
This step is SO easy in a baby food maker, but can also be accomplished in a blender.
5. Store in the refrigerator or freezer
Let cool and serve immediately or store for later. To store, place the baby food in baby food jars without the lid in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Add the airtight lids, then store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or the freezer for up to 3 months!
