Recipe for Kenwood by Claire Turnbull

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup of red lentils, well rinsed
  • 1 large head of broccoli
  • 4 large carrots, peeled

Method

  1. Cut the carrots into 1 cm thick slices and put into a saucepan along with 2 cups of water
  2. Remove the stalk from the broccoli and trim off all the hard outside layer of the stalk so the soft inner flesh remains, add this to the carrot and water.
  3. Break up the head of the broccoli into its florets and add those to the pan.
  4. Add the lentils to the pan, then bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer and cook for 20-25 minutes until the lentils are soft and the vegetables are very well cooked. Add extra ½ - 1 cup of water during cooking if required. You will need to keep an eye on the pan and stir regularly to ensure the lentils don’t stick and burn to the bottom of the pan!
  5. Remove from the heat and allow to cool very slightly then blend with the Kenwood Triblade metal stick until smooth, or whatever texture is right for the age and stage of your baby. Add a little extra water if required.

Tip: This will freeze well in an ice-cube tray so you can get a few cubes out at a time as required
