Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breast

  • 1 butternut squash

  • 1 chicken stock cube

  • 1 small broccoli head

  • 1 small cauliflower head

  • 3 handfuls frozen peas

  • 2 potatoes

  • 4 carrot

Method

  1. Wash the chicken breasts and dice into cubes and place in the first layer of your steamer.
  2. Peel and dice potatoes, carrots and butternut squash and add to the 2nd layer of your steamer.
  3. Chop the broccoli and cauliflower and add to the 3rd layer of your steamer with the peas (or second if only two layers).
  4. Allow to steam for 30-45 minutes until all veg is soft.
  5. Once cooked, transfer all ingredients to a large bowl.
  6. Either add your stock sachet directly into the bowl or if using a stock cube, mix with some of the veg juices from the steamer before adding.
  7. Add a couple of ladles of the veg juices to the bowl.
  8. Blend until smooth.

Handy Hint

To save time, use frozen veg.
Add more or less of the vegetable juice depending on how thick you want the dinners.

    I made this last night for my 6mo DS - he wolfed it down! I omitted the cauliflower as it does bad things to his tummy bless him, and it tasted yummy still. I also steamed some of the bits in the microwave to save time, and as I didn't have enough layers in my steamer. As there are quite a lot of ingredients, it took a bit longer than the usual dinners I make him - but on the up side it made 11 portions!!!

    This is a particular favourite with my 12 month old & has been since he was 6 months.

    My little one loves these dinners. They're so handy as you don't really have to do much, especially if you use frozen veg !! And you can make lots in advance. I use the Brother Max Large Freezer Pots, available from Mothercare.
