Tuna + Rice Vegetable Puree

I haven't made a lot of  babyfood lately - as soon as Oscar turned 12 months old he would only eat what his big brothers were having. This meal, however, was on high rotation when he started getting his first teeth and is still a huge favourite of his.


Ingredients:
1/4 onion
160g carrots (about 2) peeled and cut into chunks
1 tablespoon olive oil
160g tomato passata (or fresh tomatoes)
90g rice
water
95g tin tuna
grated parmesan cheese, to garnish
squeeze of lemon juice (optional)

Method:
  1. Add onion, carrot, and olive oil into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds/speed 5. Scrape down bowl.
  2. Saute for 4 minutes/100 degrees/speed 1.
  3. Add tomato passata, rice and enough water to cover the mixture by about 1 inch.
  4. Cook for 18 minutes/100 degrees/speed 2. (At this point check the consistency and puree the mixture if required. )
  5. Add tuna to the TM bowl and stir through with spatula.
  6. To serve, place into a bowl and grate over some fresh parmesan cheese and a little squeeze of lemon juice.
Makes 4 serves
