Beefy Mash

For 7 months old

1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 small Onion
2 Large Tomato, diced
1 Medium Carrot, washed, peeled and diced
1 Clove of Garlic, mashed
150g Minced Lean Beef
2 Medium Potatoes, washed peeled & diced
1/2 cup Frozen Peas

1/4 cup Vegetable stock /water


  1. In a saucepan, heat oil over medium heat and sauté onion until fragrant and translucent. (about 5 mins)
  2. Stir in tomatoes, carrot, peas and garlic. Continue to sauté for another 5 mins.
  3. Add minced beef and stock/water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer partially covered for about 25-30 mins. (until meat is thoroughly cooked). Save the stock.
  4. In another small saucepan, boil potatoes until tender; drain.
  5. Once all the ingredients are cooled, use a hand held blender or food processor, puree meat mixture and potatoes. Add a tablespoon of left over stock at a time to achieve the desired consistency. If you find that the puree is still too thick, you can add more stock.
  6. Pour the puree into the baby cubes or ice cube trays and freeze.

· I pack each baby cube with approx. 75ml of puree for convenience. Yields 8 cubes
· You may double the portion to achieve more.
· This stew is like our shepherd’s pie but baby version :P
