Purest Pea Puree

When your baby is ready for solids, peas make a wonderful introduction to veggies.

  • Yield: Makes 3/4 cup

Source: Martha Stewart Kids, Spring


  • 2 cups fresh shelled peas, or one 10-ounce package frozen peas, thawed


  1. Place peas in a steamer basket set over a pan of simmering water. Steam until peas are bright green and softened. Transfer to the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade; puree until peas are perfectly smooth, adding liquid a tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. Pass through a fine-mesh strainer, discarding solids. Let cool slightly, and serve.

Cook's Notes

When you first introduce your baby to solid foods, the consistency of the puree should be quite thin. We suggest adding formula, breast milk, or steaming liquid. As your baby grows, you can gradually reduce the amount of added liquid.
