Searching for a healthy, delicious, and savory dish for your foodie-in-training? I have been cooking away in my teeny-tiny New York City kitchen lately and want to share a recipe my daughter absolutely loves, cinnamon roasted sweet potato and apple puree! The best part about this recipe, aside from being incredibly easy, is that you can stop just before the pureeing process and have a healthy finger-food meal for your toddler or an adult side dish; a win for everyone!
If you are a rookie in the kitchen or creating baby food for the first time, you will love this simple recipe. Steaming is a popular cooking process for making baby food, but I prefer roasting instead, just as simple and much tastier! The small amount of olive oil and salt in the recipe help bring out the rich flavors of the sweet potato and apple while providing a good source of fat. Just wait until you pull the pan out of the oven and smell the cinnamon, AH-mazing!
For all the grandmothers, aunts, and friends of new moms out there, homemade baby food makes for an amazingly sweet, kind, thoughtful, and loving gesture (HINT, HINT)!
All the details of the recipe are below, happy cooking!
