Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Course: Homemade Baby Food
Servings: 2 cups


  • 2 cups green beans chopped
  • 1/2 cup asparagus trimmed and chopped
  • 2 cups frozen peas thawed


  • In medium saucepan of boiling water, cook green beans and asparagus for 6 to 8 minutes or until very tender.
  • Add peas; cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until very tender; drain well. Transfer to baby food maker. Purée in batches until very smooth.



  • To peel asparagus: Run vegetable peeler from just below the tip to the bottom of the stalk to remove tough outer layer.

  • No baby food maker? No problem! Use a small food processor to purée and push through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any solids.
