Making Mr. Giant Proud

Let's just get to the point. Cati liked green beans. I'm not surprised anymore. My kid loves her veggies and I couldn't be prouder. Let's just hope she keeps liking them.

Green Bean with Mint Pureè
Source: adapted from Cooking for Baby by Lisa Barnes
Makes 1 cup

1/2 lb trimmed green beans
1/4 tsp chopped mint
1 tbsp olive oil (optional)
Breast milk or formula

In a large frying pan over medium high heat, bring 1-inch water to boil. Add beans and return to a boil. Cover and cook until very tender and bright green, about 7-9 minutes. Drain beans.

Add to food processor and pureè. Add mint and olive oil and continue to pureè. Add breast milk or formula until pureè reached the best consistency for eating.

Storage: Good for 3 days in the fridge in an airtight container or up to 3 months in the freezer.

Note: I added about 2 oz of breast milk to get the consistency kind of runny.
