We couldn’t help it. I have been wanting to make a pea puree for Jordi and in the past, when I made it for Santi (I didn’t even try for Diego-so inexperienced!), it always came out lumpy and tasteless. I love cooking for my kids and take great pride in preparing the healthiest options for them! I have to say that like many things, with practice, we master and I have mastered a yummy Peas and Spinach soup for us. So I decided to make it for Jordi…but Jose and I each had a bowl as well!! Yum!
This recipe serves 2 adults and 2 babies!
1 small yellow onion, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 clove of fresh garlic coarsely chopped
1 (10-ounce) bag (or the equivalent) fresh organic spinach, rinsed
1 1/4 cups frozen organic peas
1 1/2 cups vegetable or chicken stock (what I used)
dash of heavy cream
1 tablespoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Saute onions in the melted butter in a large soup pot over high heat, stirring occasionally to prevent onions from sticking-about 10 minutes. Add garlic, lower the heat to medium and continue cooking for another 10 minutes until onions are translucent. Stir in spinach and saute until wilted about 5 minutes more. Add peas and the stock to the pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Remove soup from heat and allow to cool well.
I used the blender to puree COOL soup. If you double or triple the recipe, blend it in small batches (use a second bowl to pour puree in until all soup is pureed). Place puree back into pot, add cream and bring to simmer over low heat.
Enjoy and make sure to save some for the baby!!!
What’s your favorite baby food? I need ideas please! Jordi eats everything!!! jajaja!
