VEGETABLE PUREE RECIPE 1 potato (or any vegetable of your choice) 4-5 tablespoons of formula, breast milk, or water Peel vegetable and dice. Steam for 10 minutes or until the vegetable is soft. Mash the vegetable using a fork, or you can press it using a sieve or strainer. Mix the vegetable with the liquid. You can also use a blender to mix all of the ingredients. BABY FRUITS A variety of fruits (apples, pears, mangoes, papaya, or any fruit in season) Cut each fruit into quarters. Put in a bowl and cover. Put in the microwave for about 4 minutes. Chop the fruits with an electric chopper or blender (or you can use fork or knife if you don't have a blender). You can use it immediately or you can store in the freezer by using ice cube trays.
