  • Carrot and kale purée weaning recipe
Organix Stage 1 6m+
  • Under 10 minutes to prepare
  • 10-30 minutes to cook
  • Approx. 8 baby portions
  • Can be frozen
  • How to make

5 large carrots
5 large stems of curly kale
A splash of water to loosen to desired consistency

Optional - herbs or spices of your choice
Optional - some butter or oil

Step 1

Top and tail the carrots, peel and chop roughly into discs. Remove tough stems from the kale and then very finely chop the leaves

Step 2

Steam the carrots for approx. 15 - 20 minutes until soft (or boil if you prefer). Add the kale to the steamer for the last 5 minutes so that it wilts, but stays bright green

Step 3

For younger babies, place the vegetables in a blender and blend into a smooth puree. Add additional water to desired consistency

Step 4

For slightly older babies place the drained vegetables into a large bowl and mash together. This textured mash is great for babies starting to explore different textures, and you can adjust the texture to suit your little one

Step 5

This puree is perfect as it is, but you can add herbs or spices if you like. A pinch of turmeric adds a delicate flavour, a little grate of nutmeg can enhance the flavour of the kale, and some fresh coriander can be quite delicious too. If you like you can also add a knob of butter or splash of olive or hemp oil for some healthy fat

Recipe notes

This can be served as a simple puree or mash for younger babies. Older children and adults may also enjoy the smoother texture you get from blending it, so play around with both. Try adding various herbs, spices and a little butter or oil. This is a delicious side dish for the rest of the family to be served alongside some fish or meat.
