Marlee's Super Baby Food: Carrot & Red Lentil

Marlee's Super Baby Food: Carrot & Red Lentil
Makes: about 5 cups
2 1/2 c. water, for cooking lentils
1 c. red lentils
4 large carrots, peeled and sliced
Bring water to a boil and add lentils. Reduce heat to a low simmer, cover and cook until water is absorbed and lentils are smooth.
In the meantime place carrots in a medium pot with a steamer basket and a tad of water. Bring to a boil reduce heat to a low simmer and steam carrots just until tender.
Transfer both the lentils and carrots to a blender or food processor and blend or process until a smooth puree is achieved. Add water as need.
* 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.
