Homemade Baby Food - Green Beans

We have moved onto greens at our house. My daughter just turned 8 months old and so far I have made all her baby food with good outcomes. She however is not a fan of green beans. I may just start giving her the cooked beans as finger foods and see how she does with that. If you are interested in making baby food here is how I did my beans.

I selected a batch of organic green beans from a local farmer's market since my beans that are in my garden are slow growing. Clean and snap green beans.
You can either steam or boil the beans. I chose to boil mine. I added the beans to a pan and then barely covered with water. I boiled mine with the lid on for about 13 minutes.
Once cooled, I added the beans to the food processor. Beans are a little stringy so I ended up adding them to the blender with a little bit of water afterwards and pureed them to a thinner consistency. I saved some in the fridge to give to the baby and froze the rest in ice cube trays for later.
