Cheesy Lentil Soup

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1½ cups (375mL) water
  • 1 tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 small (70g) carrot, chopped
  • 2 tbsp red lentils
  • 2 tbsp grated tasty cheese
  • 2 tbsp frozen peas, thawed

How to make

  1. Place water, onion, carrot and lentils in a small saucepan over high heat; bring to the boil; simmer until lentils are tender, about 10-15 minutes; stir through cheese and peas.
  2. Puree in a food processor or blender until smooth, adding more boiled water if necessary to achieve the required consistency. For older babies, simply mash with a fork.

Tips

For convenient quantities, place puree into ice cube trays and freeze. Each cube is equal to about 1 tablespoonful, which is just right for babies just starting out.
