Make Ahead: Orange Puree
You will use the orange puree in some of the listed recipes. (This recipe makes 2 cups of puree)
1 medium sweet potato or yam(peeled and coarsely chopped), 2 medium to large carrots (peeled and sliced into thick chunks), 2 to 3 tbs water
Place the carrots and sweet potatoes in a medium sized pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes, until carrots are tender. Careful-if the carrots aren't tender enough, they may leave telltale little nuggets of vegetables in recipes, which will reveal their presence to your kids.
Drain the carrots and sweet potatoes and put them in the food processor with 2 tbs of water. Puree on high until smooth-no pieces of vegetables showing. Stop occassionally to push the contents to the bottom. If necessary, use another tablespoon of water to smooth out the puree, but the less water, the better.
*This can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
