Mashed Zucchini

Jules loves just about anything you put in front of her, which has been great fun for us. At 4 or 5 months, we gave her zucchini as a puree, but now that she is 7 months, we’ve been introducing chunkier foods. If your little one is not ready for chunks, feel free to throw your steamed zucchini into your food processor. It is very runny and liquidy so no need to add breast milk or formula. You may actually want to add rice cereal or oatmeal to make it a little thicker.

Makes about 1/2 cup
Cut two zucchinis into 1 inch rounds. Bring about 1/2 inch of water to a boil in a medium saucepan and add the zucchini. Turn your heat down to medium and put the lid on tight. Let steam for 5-9 minutes until the zucchini is fork tender.
If the water has not evaporated, drain well and let the zucchini cool. Mash with a potato masher (or puree in your food processor). Keep in your fridge for 3-4 days or in your freezer for up to 3 months.
