Try your little ones with some beetroot

Recipe: Bring beetroot into your toddler's diet

beetroot-436

Method

  1. Peel and rinse the cooked beet. Cut off a piece and finely dice – you'll want 11⁄2 teaspoons. Place the diced beet in a bowl.

  2. Cut the remaining beet into larger pieces and blend with the formula until smooth. Pour half into a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and chill. Freeze the other half.
  3. Add extra flavour with fromage frais and chives.
  4. Rinse and finely chop the chive sprig. Mix three-quarters of it with the fromage blanc.
  5. Dip a spoon into hot water and shape a scoop of the fromage frais. Place it carefully on the bowl of soup and sprinkle with the remaining chives and a little of the diced beet.
  6. Add extra texture with some black grapes.
  7. Wash the grapes. With the tip of a small, sharp knife, remove the skin and seeds. Cut five grapes into small pieces, enough to fill about two teaspoons. Set aside. Blend remaining grapes with some beet soup.
  8. Pour in a bowl; sprinkle with the pieces of grapes and a little diced beet.

From 10 months

Ingredients

  • 150g cooked beet
  • 150ml formula (or expressed milk)
  • 1 chive sprig
  • 2 tsp semi-skimmed fromage frais, unsalted ricotta, or plain yogurt
  • 10 black grapes (Alain prefers Muscat grapes)

TOP TIP

Beetroots contain a red pigment called betacyanin. So don't worry if baby's nappies are reddish – there's no danger at all.
