Parsnip Yogurt Mezze – Baby-led Weaning

This baby-led weaning recipe is simply delicious, flavoursome and perfect for babies from the age of 7 months – once first tastes and flavours have been accepted, and baby is comfortable with finger foods.

With four unique flavours blended together – nutmeg, garlic, black pepper and yogurt, this mezze will be a real treat. Similar to Greek tzatziki, this gorgeous, creamy, calcium-rich mezze will add lots of aromatic flavour to some soft finger foods. Very soft pitta (helps if you slice in it half to make it super thin), or very soft bread.

Total prep and cooking time: 15 mins
Makes 13 ice-cubes

1 tbsp olive oil
¼ tsp minced garlic
1 parsnip – washed, peeled, cored, chopped
1 sweet apple – washed, peeled, cored, chopped
1 tbsp full-fat Greek yogurt
Pinch of ground nutmeg
Pinch of ground black pepper

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan, add the garlic, parsnip and apple and sauté on low heat for a few minutes, then add 2 tablespoons of water and let the apple and parsnip steam (covered) for 5–8 minutes (depending on the thickness of the pieces) until they are both tender.

Once tender, pop into a food processor (or use a handheld blender) and blend until smooth. Add the yogurt, nutmeg and black pepper and combine well. Spread thinly over a very soft pitta slice (once your child has mastered soft finger foods) and cut into strips for your little one. Add more or less to a pitta slice depending on your little one’s taste buds.
