8+ Months: Smoky Squash Cakes

Babies and toddlers will love this veggie pancake. Nutrition bonus: butternut squash is full of vitamin A.

Ingredients: Makes 12 patties

  • 1 cup butternut squash puree
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped clinatro
  • 3/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more if necessary


  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the olive oil. Form into 12 patties.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the patties until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side, cooking in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding.

Make ahead: Store in the fridge for up to three days. Serve at room temperature or reheat in a 250F oven
