Protein plays a crucial role in our daily nutrition. In the Stage 1 baby food recipes, we have introduced lentils as a main source of protein. We don’t recommend introducing protein until you have started Stage 2 baby food as their young digestive system is not developed enough. When we are starting with protein we want to start with the simple meat, chicken, as some babies are allergic to red meats. I am not joking here. You may be surprised to hear when I say “allergic to red meats”. I, myself, am a good example here. I have a some form of blood disease which intolerances of iron-rich foods, so I simply avoid eating iron-rich foods since I learned that I carry a life long disease.
Ok, enough about the author and let’s stick back to the topic.
First of all, wash and dice the chicken and red pepper into small cubes. (The size of the cubes do not matter here as we are going to puree it later) Steam the chicken and pepper in a saucepan for 10-12 minutes. Check the chicken to see if it is ready and well cooked thoroughly. Put the chicken and pepper in to your favorite baby food processor and blend it for a few seconds, add the water or the chicken stock from the saucepan to moisture the mixture. Divided the mix in to two servings, put aside half the mix to freeze.
Chop the avocado roughly, add it to the chicken and pepper puree you just made. For the better and thicker, smoother taste, use the hand blender here if you have one, but it is ok to just use your baby food processor or family blender. I hope your little one will enjoy the yummy chicken avocado recipe.
Tips: to reduce the discoloration of the avocado, keep the seed in the unused half.
