Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potato and Apple Puree

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!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Wash and peel apples and sweet potato. Chop into cubes, approximately 1/4 inch. Cubes should be the same size for even cooking time.
  3. Arrange apples and sweet potato cubes in a roasting or large baking pan, coat evenly with olive oil and kosher salt, toss. Place cinnamon stick in the center of the cubes.
  4. Cook for 35-45 minute or until sweet potato and apples split easily with a fork. The apples and sweet potato should be caramelized or golden brown around the edges when cooking is complete.
  5. Remove from oven, let cool. Remove cinnamon stick, puree in a food processor and add 1 tablespoon at a time of water until you achieve desired consistency. Recipe renders approximately 2 cups or 16 ounces.
