Halibut with Summer Vegetables

I love making this puree in the summer when all the beautiful vegetables are popping up at the farmers market, but now that it’s a little later in the season, making it can still be a breeze! Use frozen vegetables instead, since these can be easily found organic year-round. The flavors in this recipe are so delicate and marry beautifully.

Every week at the market, though, there are two ladies selling fish that smells like it came straight out of the sea. You have to wait in line what feels like forever, but it’s totally worth it. Feel free to use any mild white fish you find and think your baby will enjoy.

I threw some basil in and was shocked at how it really gave the dish some extra lovin’. I put this puree together in minutes, which is perfect for busy parents.
