Turkey and Corn Dinner Puree

Lately, I’ve been putting a lot of energy into being more of an efficient mom. Part of that means making dinners for the family that can blend well into a puree for my toddler.

This week, I made a huge pot of soup with homemade turkey meatballs. The original recipe called for chili powder, but since I was planning on feeding this to my daughter, I left that step out so she could enjoy it. It has me taking a new approach to planning out our family meals. Plus, if I’m already spending money on food for dinners, the last thing I want to do is buy squeeze packets for my daughter. Blending up your leftovers for the baby can make life so much easier. The new flavors that your baby is trying will make for an enjoyable food adventure and will definitely help expand their palate.

Turkey and Corn Dinner Puree

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound of lean ground turkey, enough to make 2-3 meatballs
  • 1/2 stalk of corn

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, add turkey meat and season with spices that are ok with your toddler’s developing stomach and tastebuds. I added a little salt and pepper. Mix and roll into balls.
  2. In a sauté pan with a little olive oil, cook 2 meatballs, 4 minute on each side and let cool.
  3. In a pot of water, add the corn and boil until tender, about 15 minutes.
  4. Cut the stalk of corn to remove the husk. Shave the corn off the cob with a knife.
  5. In your Baby Bullet, add the cooked meatballs and cooked corn with 2 Tbsp water – you can also use the water used to cook the corn.
  6. Blend until smooth, adding more water if necessary to create a smoother puree.

Enjoy!
