  1. Combine olive oil, fennel, and zucchini in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until vegetables are softened and have taken some color, about 10 minutes.

  2. Pour in water and stir well. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat. Simmer 5 minutes, or until vegetables are soft and fully cooked. Add more water only if mixture is too dry.

  3. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Blend to your desired consistency, for smaller babies, blend until completely smooth.

Recipe Note

Introducing different flavors and textures to your baby is so important, and I found this combination of fennel and zucchini was one of my daughter's favorites. The fennel is naturally sweet and full of flavor and cooking in olive oil first not only deepens flavor, but the added fat helps baby absorb all of the nutrients from the vegetables!
