    How to make a Trio of Root Vegetables

    1. Steam the root vegetables for about 20 minutes or until tender.
    2. Blend the vegetables to a puree adding a little of the boiled water at the bottom of the steamer (about 75ml) or some of your baby’s usual milk to make a good consistency for your baby.
    3. Steaming is the best way to preserve nutrients but if you don’t have a steamer,
    4. put the vegetables into a saucepan and just cover with boiling water. 
    5. Cover the pan with a lid and cook over a medium heat until tender (about 20 minutes).
    6. Drain the vegetables and blend to a puree using a little of the cooking liquid or you could add a little of your baby’s usual milk.
