Butternut squash and spinach {Baby food}

     My favorite thing to do during the day is cook while my baby girl watches from her highchair. She's at the age now where she's entertained for hours by just a few toys and snacks. So, as Olivia played in her highchair, I started throwing things in the blender.


    • 1 large butternut squash
    • 1 cup of spinach
    • 1/4 cup of water


I just love the color or this puree, it's so bright and vibrant
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Poke several hole in the squash with a fork, rinse and set aside. Line a baking pan with aluminium foil. Place the squash on the pan and in the oven for 45-55 minutes. Let squash cool. Pour the 1/4 cup of water into a pot and bring to a boil. Put the spinach in the boiling water and cook until it wilts or 4-5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the spinach to a blender, saving the cooking liquid. Remove skin from squash and place the squash in the blender. Pulse several times until smooth, adding cooking liquid until you reach desired consistency.
