Let’s face it; roasted vegetables and fruits are delicious! Babies think so too. Starting at 6 months we began roasting and pureeing vegetables and fruits for my son. The best part is that you can make a lot at once and freeze them in ice cube trays (we use silicon trays) and they will keep up to 1 month.
1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F
2) Cut fruits and vegetables in halves face down on a baking dish or sheet
3) When the fruit and vegetable is soft enough to slide a knife in and out remove from the oven.
4) Remove the peel
5) Puree in a food processor or blender
