Recipe notes

This is a lovely puree or mash for your baby to try some new flavours and textures. The basil gives is a delicious new taste for very little ones. An addition of a little garlic can add a depth of flavour for slightly older children. Just crush a clove and add to the other ingredients with a little freshly ground black pepper. This will make a tasty dip.
