Today we went to the market and bought some fresh ingredients to make a mild baby hummus that Charlotte tried for the 1st time. Her 9 month old birthday occurred yesterday and we are in full swing with new foods and especially working on finger foods and spoon feeding herself. I made a simple yet delicious hummus for her that I enjoyed as well. All I needed was a can of chick peas or garbanzo beans and a little bit of help from garlic, basil and a sweet pepper.
I used my Ninja that I make my smoothies and her baby purees in for this too.
1 can chick peas or garbanzo beans (rinsed and drained)
1 basil leaf
1 small sweet pepper (I used yellow)
1/4 tsp minced garlic (mine was in olive oil)
1/2 c water
Blend until smooth
Jar and enjoy!
Baby feeding tips:
Let her do it herself whether that is with her hand, spoon or dipping a carrot or celery in to lick and suck on.
Life is messy and feeding your baby is especially messy…embrace, let go and enjoy!
