Happy New Year!
Feels good to be back to blogging, 2015 was pretty slow here but this year is gonna be awesome.
In late November last year, my daughter turned 6 months and finally I could start introducing other foods. I had purposed to exclusively breast feed her for 6 months. It wasn’t easy especially since my maternity leave ended when she was 3 months however I managed.
Quick question: Do you like bland food?
I guess not, well neither do babies.
I remember when we went for her 6 month check up, I was interested in finding out if it was ok to use spices in her food. Her Paed okayed the use of spices as long as they are natural and used in moderation.
I intend to share a few of the foods that I have introduced her to, currently she eats what we are having well minus the salt.
This recipe is pretty easy.
I am currently loving leeks, they are great onion substitutes, heck they are in the onion family.
Chop up the leek, and finely chop the ginger.
In a sufuria, heat some oil and fry the leek and ginger.
Now cube the potatoes.
Cook the leek until it is fragrant.
Add the potato cubes and stir.
Cover and let the potatoes cook for a few minutes then add water. The water should be at the same level as the potatoes.
The food is almost ready.
At this point, depending on your little one you can choose to serve as is, mash the food with a fork or blend. I chose to blend the food.
There you go,
Potato and leek.
She enjoyed the food.
Any one here weaning their little one? I would love to know what you have introduced.
