Homemade Baby Food ~ Green Bean Puree
For homemade green beans for baby, make sure your beans are fresh - this can make a big taste difference as they can become very bitter when they're no longer fresh.

Homemade Green Bean PureeIngredients
1 - 2lbs fresh green beans, trimmed
- Place a steamer insert into a large pot, and fill with enough water to just reach the steamer basket (about 1 inch). Turn heat to high and cover with lid. When water is boiling, add prepared green beans to the steamer insert and cover - allow them to cook until very tender - about 10 to 15 minutes total.
- Move cooked pieces to a blender to blend- allow to cool slightly before moving forward with blending. When blending, add cooking liquid to thin until you reach the desired consistency. You can push these through a thin colander / sieve to remove additional pieces of skin.
