Baby Food: Zucchini and Egg Scramble Purée

Think of this as your baby’s first omelet. The zucchini adds a sweet grassy flavor, and the eggs contribute high-quality protein and choline, a mineral essential for eye health.

Ingredients: Makes about 1/2 Cup

  • 1 medium zucchini, grated
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons breast milk or formula
  1. Wrap the grated zucchini in a clean dish towel and squeeze, wringing out as much water as possible.
  2. Melt the butter in a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Add the zucchini and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the egg and scramble, stirring until the egg has firmed up. Let cool for a few minutes.
  3. Transfer the zucchini-egg mixture to a blender. Add the breast milk or formula and purée until smooth.
