Tip

I only used chicken because I had some left over in the fridge I needed to use.  You could sub any cooked meat you have.   Or you could add un-cooked partially frozen meat in first step and mice it by pulsing on turbo until you reach desired consistency, leave the meat in the bowl while chopping veg, then increasing first cooking time to 10 minutes.

 

After cooked I divide the meal into babies individual servings and freeze individually. 

 

You could make this dish suitable for older children/whole family be chopping meat into chunks and omitting the first step, chopping veg on speed 4 for a few seconds only, and leaving chickpeas whole, and using reverse speed 2 while cooking.

    I made this for an 8 month old and she loves it! I only put 500g water though, instead of 800g due to comments made about being too watery. I even thought this was really delicious and healthy for me!!

    So good for bub. A huge portion though for my 6 month old. Have heaps in the freezer which is great but probably would have halved the recipe. Thanks!
