The Precious Pea/Ærter/豌豆[wān dòu]


I prefer to serve this from 6 months, although some books says it can be served from 4 months. Peas are naturally sweet. Thus, on days when baby refuses to eat broccoli, this is a good alternative, full of vitamins as well.

Green vegetables are so important for its vitamins and minerals, and to create variety, I choose to introduce more than one type of green vegetables, and the green peas is another excellent choice.

Directions:
1. Steam 1 packet of frozen peas (600 - 650g) for 10 minutes until tender

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

3. Puree with blender

Storage:
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)

Nutritonal Value:
Green peas are a good source of vitamin B1, B2, B3, B6, C, K, folic acid, iron, manganese and fiber.
