Baby Food Recipe – Coconut Curry Sauce Cubes

Here’s a new baby food recipe from Fresh Baby’s Cheryl Tallman: Coconut Curry Sauce Cubes

Yellow Curry Powder is often associated with Indian cooking. It’s a blend of spices, which vary by region, food, and cooking style. Most Indian curry powders contain turmeric, coriander and cumin. At the market, choose a curry powder labeled “mild” for this recipe.

This recipe uses coconut milk which can be found in the Asian section of your supermarket. Coconut milk sometimes separates into a thick layer of white coconut and a watery liquid. Shaking the can before opening can recombine it, but if that doesn’t work, pour the contents of the can into a blender and whirl it, or pour it into a bowl and use a whisk to blend it together.

Ingredients:

* 1 (13.5 oz) can Coconut Milk
* ¼ cup Chicken Broth
* ¼ cup Onion, chopped
* 1 Garlic Clove, chopped
* 1 Tbsp. Tomato Paste
* 1-2 Tsp. Curry (mild) Powder
* ¼ tsp. Cinnamon
* 1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar

Place all contents in a blender and process to smooth texture. Pour into a saucepan, bring to a boil, cover and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Pour the sauce into an ice cube tray, cover and freeze until ready to use.

Serving: Remove a sauce cube from the freezer, defrost and combine it with pureed or mashed beans, meats rice or vegetables. When first introducing the sauce, try a small amount and work your way up to more. Here are some delicious combinations for awesome coconut curries:

* Lentils, Carrots and Apples
* Sweet Potatoes, Cauliflower and Beef
* Brown Rice, Spinach and Chicken

Encouraging Your Children to Appreciate Their Taste Buds

Encouraging healthy eating is about balance – even when it comes to taste. Here are a few tips that can help you expand or improve the balance in your child’s taste buds.

Experiment with Tastes: Allow your child to experience and identify the four unique tastes that make up flavor – sweet, salty, sour, bitter. Taste small amounts of different ingredients to identify which taste category they belong to. This can be a fun kitchen activity when preparing dinner!

Stay Balanced: Good taste is a balancing act. Include a variety of tastes in your meals and encourage your child to try all foods. Experiencing the same tastes all the time is not a path to healthy eating.

Ask Them and Talk About It: When you hear “that’s yummy!” or “Yuck – that’s terrible!” – ask which flavor is best or bothering. The more you understand your child’s taste preferences the easier to guide (and expand) their food choices.

Sweet Tendency: Both breast milk and formula are sweet. It is the first taste we develop and as a result we’re already “off balance” when we begin eating foods. It is believed the earlier you introduce your child to other tastes, the better chance you have of keeping a “sweet tooth” from overpowering the taste buds.
