Sweet Potato, Butternut Squash, Pear & Rosemary Purée

After a difficult transition from exclusive breastfeeding to solids, Wriggly now enjoys food, thank goodness! She eats anything she can feed herself, but when it comes to purées, she prefers vegetables mixed with a bit of fruit.

This recipe was a bit of a happy accident. I simply tweaked a recipe from Annabel Karmel’s Quick & Easy Weaning cookbook. All you need is sweet potatoes, butternut squash, pears, olive oil and rosemary.

The smell coming from the roasted vegetables was incredible!

The purée was so delicious I could not stop eating it after I had blended it.

It would make a nice mash to go with white fish and green vegetables. I will definitely make it again for all of us!
