Green Cabbage With Carrots | Healthy Baby Recipes
7 – 24 Months
Green cabbage is a real superfood. It contains lots of valuable micronutrients, such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.
From a Traditional Chinese Medicine point of view, green cabbage helps with the circulation of Qi, which is an important prerequesite to keep “things” moving. In other words, it helps with a smooth digestion and thus prevent and relieve constipation.
1 cup (200g) chopped green cabbage
1/2 cup (100g) chopped carrots
1 tbs organic coconut oil
Optional: home-made chicken broth for extra electrolytes and rehydration (view recipe)
Babies 10-24 months: 1/8 cup (30ml)
Babies 7-9 months: 1/4 cup (60ml) for a smoother consistency
Step by Step Instructions
Heat a pan (medium heat) and add the coconut oil
Add the chopped cabbage and steam for 2-3 minutes (stir regularly)
Add 1/2 cup (120ml) of water and bring to boil
Once boiling, reduce to medium heat, cover with a lid and let it simmer for about 10 minutes (stir occasionally)
Once the water has evaporated, add the cabbage and carrots to a blender. It is okay if the carrots are not yet super-soft. That’s what we want, because cooked carrots do not have the same effect on constipation as raw carrots.
Add the homemade chicken stock if you have any! If you don’t, simply use the same amount of water
Blend until you get a smooth consistency
As much as your baby likes (preferably for lunch).
