Today's nutritious recipe from Kinder Kitchen - Carrot, lentil and coriander puree

Carrot, lentil and coriander puree (from 6 months)

175 grams carrots
175 grams potatoes
1 teaspoon ground coriander (you can always just add ½ teaspoon at the beginning)
50 grams ready to cook lentils
½ pint formula milk

1. Wash and peel the carrots and potatoes and roughly chop
2. Place all the ingredients into a saucepan, with the lid on and bring to a boil.
3. Then reduce to a simmer and cook for 30-40 minutes, until the lentils are nice and tender (Check every now and then that there is enough liquid in the saucepan and top up if need be with milk or water)
4. Once cooked puree with a hand blender and leave to cool

This meal is ideal for freezing or will keep fresh in a cold fridge for up to 3 days - just remember to reheat it thoroughly.
