Chicken Macaroni Stew

For 7 months old

100g Minced Chicken
½ tsp Tarragon leaves (optional)
1 Medium Carrot, washed, peeled and diced
1 cup Broccoli florets, discard the yellow bits
1 stalk Celery, washed trimmed and thinly sliced
1 small Onion, cut into quarters
1 Large Potato, washed peeled & cut into cubes
2 ½ cups Vegetable stock or water
1/3 cup Macaroni


  1. In a medium pot, place chicken & tarragon in water and bring to a boil.
  2. Add macaroni, celery, carrots, onion and potato; reduce heat and simmer for about 25mins or until the vegetables are tender. Keep the pot partially covered.
  3. Stir occasionally, the consistency should be that of a thick stew and if there is too much liquid, remove the lid and continue to simmer for 5-10mins more.
    Once the vegetables & macaron
    i are tender, use a slotted spoon to remove. Save the stock and leave the macaroni mixture to cool.
  4. Once cooled, use a hand held blender or food processor, puree macaroni & vegetables. 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.
  5. Pour the puree into the baby cubes or ice cube trays and freeze.

· I pack each baby cube with approx. 60ml of puree for convenience. Yields 8 baby cubes (60ml each)
· You may double the potion to achieve more.
· This stew is so fragrant that I feel like eating it myself :P
