We’re still relative beginners at the weaning game but we’re rapidly learning what will work for Lily and so far there’s very few foods that have been rejected. Ask me again a few years when LB has decided her current favourite, broccoli, is the worst food we could feed her.
Last weekend after a longer than it should be drive back from Liverpool (Don’t forget you’ve left your keys back at your parents when you turn off the M6 at Stoke meaning you have to get back on the M6 and drive north again) dinner needed to be quick and using what limited ingredients we had around the house. This is when Baby Tortilla Pizzas were born.
As everyone who has ever weaned a child your freezer is full of purees you have lovingly made or you have some pre-made baby food pouches hanging around. Since the beginning LB has rejected purees and pouches so I had spares to be used up for dinner emergencies like this. Add that lonely tortilla wrap in the bread bin from the sweet potato fajitas earlier on in the week and we almost had pizzas.
I’m always conscious that babies over 6 months should only have 1g of salt a day. Not much really when you look at the salt content of processed food. Here I’m using ready-made wraps some of which can be high in salt (these ones aren’t), but with time spare some simple tortillas made with flour and water could easily be whipped up.
Baby Tortilla Pizzas
- Tortilla wrap
- 3 tsp tomato based baby food puree (I used a Ella’s Kitchen lentil, tomato and red pepper puree )
- grated cheese
- Using a 5cm biscuit cutter, cut out three rounds from the tortilla
- Spread the puree over the tortilla bases and sprinkle with a small amount of cheese.
- Place the pizzas in a small preheated frying pan on medium. Cook gently until cheese has melted. Alternatively you could cook them under the grill. Allow to cool a bit before serving.
