Marlee's Super Baby Food: Peas, Spinach, Barley & Mint

Marlee's Super Baby Food: Peas, Spinach, Barley & Mint
Makes: about 5 cups
8oz. frozen or fresh peas
10 oz. frozen spinach, thawed and liquid reserved
1 c. cooked barley
1 T. fresh mint
Combine peas and spinach in a medium pot with a steamer basket placed inside along with a tad of water. Steam vegetables over medium just until either defrosted or warmed through.
Transfer veggies to a blender or food processor along with cooked barley, reserved spinach liquid, mint and enough water to puree until smooth. Slowly add more water as needed while blended or processing.
* Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 2 months. Ice cube trays are a great way to freeze small portions of food that can be easily heated as needed.
Depending on the food you're cooking you can either steam, boil, bake or roast ingredients, however, steaming is the best method to preserve nutrients.
