Roasted Zucchini

One of Olivia's favorite foods right now is roasted zucchini. It is so light and fresh tasting, and SO easy to make! And with a baby that is constantly on the move, I am all about easy these days! Plus, it goes well with almost everything else she loves, so it's a win for us both.
Zucchini is packed with so many nutrients that will benefit both you and your babe. In the summer, we love to throw long slices on the grill, but this winter I have been roasting it for V in the oven. 

The health benefits include:
Magnesium // Plays a central role in muscle contraction and contributes to strong bones by making up a component of bone mineral
Fiber // Aiding in digestion, maintains low blood sugar
Folate // Helps support metabolism
High Water Content // High in Vitamin C + Lutein // High in Vitamin A + Potassium
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Slice zucchini at an angle into approximately 1-inch thick slices
Coat lightly with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and S+P
Spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or tinfoil
Roast approximately 12-15 minutes or until fork tender
While still warm, puree in a food processor to make baby food
If feeding a toddler, let cool slightly and then cut into appropriate-sized pieces for your child's age.

  1. I've been reading your blog for awhile and follow you on IG. Loved your baby food posts. Question for you: when did you start giving Olivia bites of food instead of making purees? Do you still make some purees for her?
