The Friendly Carrot/Gulerod/胡萝卜[hú luó bo]

I prefer to serve this from 6 months, although some books says it can be served from 4 months.

If there is one single orange vegetable I would choose to introduce to J, it would be the carrot.

1. Wash, peel and chop 1 bag of carrots (600g or 6 carrots) into pieces

2. Wash and chop spring onions into pieces (optional, make this dish more tasty)

3. Steam carrots for 15 minutes or until tender

4. Add spring onions and steam for a minute (optional)

5. Add 6 teaspoons of powder milk and 6 teaspoons of olive oil (optional but recommended)

6. Puree with blender

1. Cool down, pour into ice cube tray and freeze.

2. Once frozen, knock the cubes out and store them in freezer bags (makes 2-3 ice cube trays, can store up to 8 weeks)

Nutritional Value:
Carrots are loaded with beta carotene, which is why they appear orange. Carrots are very low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Carrots are also a good source of thiamine, niacin, vitamin B6, folate and manganese, and a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K and potassium.
