Ingredients
1  carrots, peeled and thickly sliced
50g red lentils, rinsed
1 tsp garam masala

2. Remove from the heat, add the garam masala and use a hand blender to blitz until smooth (or use a food processor).

Top tips: 

  1. Cook the carrots for a few minutes before adding the lentils so that the carrots are soft and the lentils are not too mushy.
  2. Check the level of water a few times whilst it is cooking to make sure there is enough. Add a bit more as required to keep the food covered with water.
  3. We added some vegetable bouillon powder for extra flavour. If you are concerned about adding salt to babies food, we suggest splitting the puree and only adding the powder to the portion which adults will be eating.
