These wholesome baby soups, a creamy broccoli soup and a potato corn soup, are warming and hearty and come together in just minutes thanks to Baby Bullet. I’m sharing #BabyBullet recipes in my life as part of a sponsored series for Socialstars! Though I love making these baby soups as baby food, they’re perfect for your whole family this winter.
So, you guys, it’s cold!
Though I’m not the only one to say it. Basically Facebook has turned into the weather channel with photos of record low temps filling our feeds while the entire United States feels like Siberia.
Happy New Year, right?!
In this season of making healthier choices and setting goals, it’s definitely a hard time to desire a salad. Personally, I’m craving warm, wholesome and hearty foods, and I know my family is feeling the same. Give me something warm and I’ll be happily filling my belly.
So, as we’re just days into the new year, I’m kind of teetering between enjoying the rest of our holiday (we’re still on winter vacation!) and buckling down for a clean, organized home and healthy new year.
Just know if you’re feeling the same way, you’re not alone. It’s not about perfection. Healthy, wholesome food for your family, and your babies, doesn’t mean you have to be Pinterest-y. You’re enough. You’re loved. And you’ve got this!
Today I’m sharing a couple of soup recipes for my growing babe (okay we all like them actually!), that are warming and hearty. By using Baby Bullet complete baby food making system it actually saves time and money (baby food is expensive!) while still allowing my littles to eat fresh and natural. And the best part? It’s easy to whip up too.
I love that these wholesome baby soups have such simple steps: chop, steam, blend, and warm.
And to create a dish for the entire family, the toppings are what take this soup to the next level! This creamy potato corn soup and creamy broccoli soup can be topped with toasted croutons (everything bagels are amazing for this!), a few (diced) roasted potatoes, cheese, bacon or chicken, a dallop of sour cream or greek yogurt, some pepper or a sprinkle of green onions for added flavor and texture.
Creamy Potato + Corn Soup
(A hearty and creamy soup to satisfy a hungry appetite while being easy to digest and also facilitate digestion. Potatoes make a great dietary addition for babies who cannot digest hard food, but need energy.)
- 1 Potato
- 1 cup Sweet Corn
- 1 Cup Milk (can use dairy free option)
- 1 cup Vegetable Broth
Peel and chop potato into small chunks. Sterilize and steam potato in the Baby Bullet Steamer. Then place potato, milk and broth in the Batchbowl, and blend until desired consistency.
Add sweet corn niblets and heat over medium for just a few minutes and this creamy potato corn soup is ready to go!
Creamy Broccoli Soup
(A perfectly delicious and creamy warm meal for the cold winter season. Packed with vitamins and anti-oxidants, soup is a great way to infuse vegetables baby may not otherwise want to eat.)
- 1 – 1 1/2 cup Broccoli (chopped)
- 1 cup Milk
- 1 tsp Butter
- 1 cup Vegetable Broth
- 1 Potato (optional for more of a pureed consistency)
Peel and chop broccoli into small chunks. Sterilize and steam broccoli in the Baby Bullet Steamer, if adding potato, steam first as well. Then place broccoli, milk, butter and broth in the Batchbowl, and blend until desired consistency.
Heat over low to medium heat for just a few minutes and this creamy broccoli soup is ready to serve!
The Baby Bullet Steamer has been amazing! One of the reasons that would keep me from making baby food at times was the amount of time it took (some root vegetables would need to bake forever), and my husband even commented that we need to cook our own vegetables in the steamer since it’s such a time saver! Plus, it also works as a convenient sanitizer for pacifiers, bottle accessories and teething toys!
For Aria’s soup, I can chop, throw in the steamer, add everything to the Batchbowl, and before every else’s dinner is on the table, I’ve got a whole container full of baby soup for the week. And with all the smiley faces on everything; how can you not smile?! Happy food, happy baby. 🙂
