Winters are the best time to enjoy soups! Soups are liked by all, children or adults. Most of us struggle to feed our babies after we start weaning. Honestly, I am one of the moms struggling to make my baby eat.
Soups to the rescue!
Soups can be introduced to baby for a change. Also, they act as saviours when baby is down with cough and cold and refusing milk too.
Here are some recipes which I have tried for my baby. Hope your baby enjoys these too!
1. Tomato Soup
- Ripe Tomatoes
- Black Pepper Powder
- Blanch the tomatoes in boiling water for 2-3 minutes.
- Now, the skin can be easily removed.
- Remove the skin and blend the tomatoes in a grinder.
- Now, you can heat a little bit with butter/ghee and black pepper powder and serve steaming hot!
(If you haven’t before, introduce black pepper slowly)
2. Beetroot and Carrot soup
- Black pepper powder
- Peel and chop beetroot and carrot into small pieces.
- Pressure cook for 3-4 whistles.
- Now, blend it and add butter/ghee at this stage as it's warm.
- You can strain the soup if baby is just starting on solids, else you can give directly.
- Add black pepper powder and serve.
(Give this soup only if baby has been introduced to carrots and beetroot individually before)
3. Palak Daal Soup
- Fresh Palak
- Moong Daal
- Wash palak well and chop finely.
- Soak moong dal and wash it.
- Chop tomatoes finely.
- Now pressure cook moong daal and palak and tomato along with a pinch of turmeric powder for 4-5 whistles.
- Add ghee and mash well.
- You can give it directly if mashed well or can blend and serve.
4. Rice Soup
- Brown Rice
- Soak brown rice for 15 minutes.
- In a pan, add rice and water and let it cook.
- Once rice is done mash well while it's hot.
- Now, take out some rice along with water.
- Add ghee and serve hot.
Try these this winter and let me know which one your baby loved the most!
