Japanese food for the littles — no, it’s not sushi

Japanese dishes tend to be healthy and light — perfect for springtime! Check out this recipe for baby … Mamas love it.

TINIEST GOURMET – INTRODUCING UMAMI

Edamame and shitake mushrooms are two very common Japanese cooking.  Edamame (pronounced ed-ah-MAH-may) are little green gems – packed with protein and loads of nutrients.  Including Shitake mushrooms in this puree is a great way to introduce your baby to the distinctive taste of umami.

 

Shitake & Edamame Puree

  • 4 oz Shitake mushrooms, stems removed
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 12 oz. (2 cups) Shelled edamame
  • ¾ – 1 cup Water
  • 1 tsp. Soy sauce, optional

Directions: Bring 6 cups of water to boil in a stock pot.  Add edamame and cook for 4 minutes.  Drain edamame in a colander and place them in a blender or food processor. In a small sauté pan, heat oil over medium heat, add mushrooms and cook for 2-3 minutes.  Add the mushrooms, soy sauce and ¾ cup of water to the edamame in the blender.  Process until the mixture is a smooth puree.  If needed, add additional water.

 

Spoon the puree into your So Easy Baby Food Trays, cover and freeze until ready to use. Serve as a vegetable dish for your baby’s meal with mashed brown rice, meats or fish.
