Baby Recipe Share: Tomato-Onion Lentils

My little girl is fully into solids. She loves food and feeding herself, but I've noticed she doesn't really like bland food. Baby's bodies can't handle much salt yet, so I'm left to try to be creative in how to make her healthy, flavourful food. I'd like to share these ideas with you. My goal is to make the recipies delicious enough to eat myself.

Tomato-Onion Lentils
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 C of lentils
  • olive oil
  1. Heat 1 T olive oil in a sauce pan over medium heat
  2. Saute lentils in 1 T of olive oil for 5 or so minutes
  3. Blend tomatoes (cut them up for easier blending), onion and 1 C of water
  4. Pour blend over lentils and simmer until lentils are tender
You can spread the lentils on some bread or rice cakes to make it easier for baby's to self-feed themselves. You can also stuff them in a pita. I like to do that for me and add some feta cheese.
