Lentils Delish!

Lentils are inexpensive, and a good source of protein. They also provide iron which is very important for brain development, especially for babies and toddlers between the ages of six months and two years. Because lentils can be difficult for young babies to digest, they should be combined with lots of vegetables. 🙂

I sauteed onions, carrots, and celery in vegetable oil for about five minutes or until softened. I then added lentils and sweet potato, and poured vegetable broth over all the veggies. I brought it to a boil, turned down the heat, then let simmer for 20 minutes, covered. I then chopped it in a blender. You can purée it , but I chose to keep it chunky.  🙂
