Orange Kumara Puree and Banana Delicious!

Orange Kumara Puree

Suitable from 6 months

A little fresh orange juice adds vitamin C and flavour to this delicious puree. The optional scoopful of formula powder gives a valuable nutrient boost.

Makes 1 cup of puree

150-200g orange or gold kumara (or 1 generous cup, peeled and diced)

3-4 tablespoons water (for microwave method) or 1 cup water (for saucepan method)

1-2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice

1 scoop of Karicare Follow-On formula powder (optional)

Microwave method. Tested in an 800 watt oven.

  • Peel kumara and cut into cubes.
  • Place kumara and water in a small oven-glass bowl or casserole. Cover and microwave on Full Power for 4 minutes.
  • Let cool for at least 4 minutes. (Take care removing lid – steam can burn.)
  • Puree the cooked kumara with liquid using a hand-held electric blender.

Saucepan method.

  • In a small saucepan boil diced kumara with 1 cup of water, covered, for about 10 to 14 minutes until tender. Drain liquid into a bowl.
  • Using a hand-held blender puree kumara in the saucepan, adding some of the cooking liquid as needed to get a moist, soft puree.

Both methods:

Blend in orange juice.

Optional: use a fork to beat in formula powder just before serving.

Serve warm.
