As much frozen or fresh spinach as you’d like
- Heat spinach in a pan till fully cooked and most of the water has evaporated.
- Allow to cool for a bit and then puree.
- Add water as necessary to reach desired consistency.
As your child gets older you can adapt this recipe to your child’s developmental stage by simply cooking and chopping instead of pureeing, or adding spices as desired.
When I first introduced spinach to Lorenzo he didn’t like it. And I quickly learned that spinach as a side dish was just too strong of a flavor for him. BUT, if I combined little pieces with bites of other foods that he loves (rice, chicken, fish, pasta, or egg ) he had no problem eating it.
You can also combine different flavor enhancing foods to make it a creamy spinach dish. Lorenzo likes it when I mix a little grated Parmesan, for a more cheesy version.
