At 5 months he used to eat avocado and prune puree without protest. Now he'll simultaneously eat clementines, meatballs, squash soup, cantaloupe puree, eggs, cheese and yogurt - his lunch today. He basically eats as much as I do if not more. He will, however, refuse to eat squash soup mixed with cantaloupe puree. He has to draw the line somewhere!
The Cuisinart Smartstick Chris gave me for Christmas is great for making squash soup and tomato sauce! I also pureed cantaloupe after Henry refused to eat the cubes. He slurped up the puree like a smoothie.
Easy Squash Soup Recipe - Henry Loves It!
Boil or roast quartered or halved squash in 1-2 inches of water. Spoon out soft flesh and set aside. In the same pot used to boil the squash, sauté chopped carrots, onions, garlic and celery. Simmer in chicken stock – add for desired consistency. Add herbs such as oregano and thyme. Once veggies are tender add squash. Blend with Smartstick.
