Beetroot and Plum Purée

Beetroot and Plum Purée
This recipe is great for stage 1 weaning, when you are still on runny purées. After you have started with your root vegetable purée, a nice next step is to mix your vegetables with fruit to make it more palatable. Beetroot goes really well with plum and we love the vibrant colour of this purée.

2 beetroot, peeled and diced into 1cm cubes

2 red plums, halved and stoned

Put the beetroot and plums in a small saucepan and just cover with water. Bring to the boil over a high heat, then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 10-15minutes until beetroot is very soft.

Place the beetroot and plums in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.

Makes 4 portions
