Think Green: Fresh Organic Zucchini

OK, I am not sure why I am stuck on green food right now. I guess it is a subconscious thing or something. But, I do know that Drew was pretty happy with this new found flavor. Zucchini has a very mild flavor, so it wasn't too much of a shock to his taste buds. And, like everything else thus far, it was super easy to make. I pulled this from my Williams & Sonoma Cooking for Baby book.

Steam fresh sliced zucchini until very tender (5-9 minutes, leave the skin on)
Blend in a food processor (To your desired consistency)

Notes: You should not have to add any fluids to this. If anything, you may want to thicken it with cereal if it is too thin. I didn't have to do that this time around. Also, because you leave the skin on, the book suggest that you buy an organic zucchini.

I put the left overs in my new Beaba Multi Portion from Williams & Sonoma. This is my first time using this, but so far it is good.


  1. I'm glad zucchini went better for you than for us. Zucchini is the least favourite of the veggies so far. He HATES it!

  2. I am very interested in how your like the Beaba Multi-portion tray. How easily does the frozen segments pop out?

  3. The silicone tray works really well. You can pop out just one section at a time and it comes out very easily. It is easier to work with than just an ice tray and holds more ounces per serving as well.
