Salmon Bok Choy Plum Baby Puree +6M

When it comes to baby food sometimes I like to suggest unconventional ingredients like in todayโ€™s baby puree where Bok Choy is one of the main ingredients. Every ingredient is stillย seasonal, organic and full of nutrientsโ€ฆ.

The main reason is that if you introduce your baby at an early stage to a wide variety of flavors and textures, the chance that he/she will be a picky eater later are lower ๐Ÿ™‚ Once a baby is used to a new flavor (and it might take few tries before it happens), that flavor is categorized in his/her mind as “usual” “save” “good to go” ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s way more probable that your 8 months baby will enjoy a broccoli puree for the first time than your 2 yrs old will want to try it for the first time. So, don’t hesitate to be creative when it comes to baby food ingredients!! You can start today with this bok choy salmon puree !!(appropriate starting from 6 months of age)

BOK CHOY is a Chinese cousin of the cabbage, usually sautรฉd for adults recipes all together with other veggies. It has a mild flavor and an excellent nutritional value: it contains vitamin A (immune system booster) + vitamin C (antioxidant) + K and good amounts of calcium, magnesium, potassium (healthy muscle) and manganeseโ€ฆand iron. Not bad for a lovely green and a good idea for a baby food ๐Ÿ˜‰

A lovely match for a 0ur bok choy is salmon and some yellow plums.

SALMON is a super food for babies, loaded with good Omega 3 fatty acids that help the babyโ€™s brain and eyes development, it is also a lovely source of protein, amino acids, vitamin D and B.

YELLOW PLUMS are in season right now. They give a delicate sweet touch to the recipe and a lovely creamy texture. Plums are a lovely source of vitamin A and C and fiber.ย  They also help keeping your babyโ€™s bowl movement regular and they help with constipation.

The cooking procedure I’ve chosen for this puree is oven roasting: it’s a delicate way of cooking and it really enhances the flavors!

Start preheating the oven to 350F/175C and liningย a baking sheet with some parchment paper.

Chop the bok choy in pieces, smaller pieces for the stalks as they take longer to cook. Remove the skin from the salmon and cut it in cubes. Leave the skin of the plums, remove the pit and cut in cubes too.

Place the salmon, the chopped bok choy and the plums cut in pieces on one layer on the baking sheet.

Bake 10/15 min up until the salmon is fully cooked

Transfer in a food processor and blend up until smooth

Serve warm or refrigerate in an air tight container for up to 2/3 days or freeze for up to 3 months

The puree can be stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
