Jessica Alba's DIY Baby Food Recipes
In celebration of Earth Week, Jessica Alba came to Access Hollywood Live to show us a DIY Organic Baby Food Recipe from her new book “The Honest Life.”
1 pound of any fresh or frozen organic vegetable, peeled and roughly chopped (carrots, squash cauliflower, broccoli, or any blend thereof)
3-4 cups chicken stock
1 small clove garlic
1 tsp fresh ginger, diced
1 tsp sea salt
1 cup unsweetened apple sauce or 1-2 bananas (use as much or as little as you like to sweeten baby food)
1 tsp olive oil
1. Bring broth to boil, add vegetables garlic, ginger, and sea salt, and simmer until veggies soften--around 20 minutes, or longer if needed.
2. In a blender, puree veggies and stock together with the applesauce or banana and olive oil (work in batches if necessary).
3. Store in reusable glass jars or containers so you’ve got a week’s worth of meals ready to go! These also freeze well.
