Puree Monday - Turkey Gobbler Puree
Here is another fun Bebe Food recipe!! It’s the perfect time of year to find these ingredients fresh!
Tropical Gobbler Puree - 9 Months+
2 pieces of turkey breast- boneless and skinless
A touch of olive oil for cooking
½ cup fresh Peaches
½ cup fresh Mango
1 tbsp fresh sage (finely chopped)
½ tsp nutmeg
Cut the turkey into medium sized chunks. Bake the turkey chunks in a 350 degree oven for around 30-40 minutes or in a skillet on medium heat for around 10-15 minutes. Be sure the chunks are fully cooked through. Either way you cook the turkey it helps to keep them covered partially with a lid or foil, preventing them from drying out. Set aside and allow the cooked turkey to cool for about 5 to 10 minutes. Slice and pit the peaches, leaving the skins on until after steaming (this will help lock in the nutrients). Steam the peach slices in either a steaming basket on the stove or in the Beaba babycook. If using the babycook fill water to the 2 mark for a full basket of peach slices. If steaming on the stove use about 2 inches of water and steam for about 5-10 minutes. Reserve the cooking liquid as you may need it. Allow the peach slices to cool for about 10 minutes, and then remove the skins. Usually this is pretty easy with either a spoon or your fingers. Cube the mango, making sure not to use the skin or the seed. Click HERE for mango cutting 101. Now add the cooked turkey cubes, steamed peaches, mango cubes, sage and nutmeg into a food processor or the Beaba babycook and puree. You may need to add some of the reserved cooking liquid from the peaches to help reach the desired consistency depending on how thin you need to make it for your little bebe. I recommend this recipe for ages 9 months and above but as always if you are unsure check with your pediatrician about when to introduce meat.
Purees can be as chunky as your baby is ready for- it’s up to you. This recipe will keep up to 3 days in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer. This recipe will fill about 2 ice cube trays (10-20 servings). If you know you will be freezing this recipe, I recommend using turkey that hasn’t been previously frozen. This recipe also makes a great toddler or adult meal. Simply spread on a whole grain tortilla, add a little cheese and toast for a few minutes in the toaster oven or a 350F degree oven. Voila…instant quesadilla!
