Our local grocery store is pretty good about stocking a good variety of organic fruits and vegs. I found some awesome green beans, zuchinni, carrots and sweet potatoes. Figured this was a good start on some staple foods.
I simply washed, dried, and chopped all of the veggies. For me it was easier to do everything at once, but since we are just starting out and not sure about any allergies, I was careful to not mix cutting boards, knives, and bowls. I put each one in about 1/4 inch of water and covered with a lid to let them steam down to a super soft texture.
Then I threw them in our little magic bullet blender. I love our magic bullet because I could use one container per veggie and not have to wash until the project was all done. They have generic versions that I have seen for less. But I am in love with this thing.
Once they were the right texture I poured them into ice cube trays and placed them in the freezer. I'm sure that there are difference size and kinds of ice cube trays. But figured that the ones we have were about 2 tbs. Figuring that as we are getting started one ice cube of green beans was a good serving size to get him used to them, check for allergies, and adjust to the new texture. As he grows, we'll just double up on the serving and two ice cubes are about the size of 1 gerber serving.
