Chicken Soup for Baby

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken breast (uncooked and diced into small bits)
  • 1 carrot (peeled and diced)
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 shakes of garlic powder
  • 4 cups of water

Directions:

Step 1: Add all of the above ingredients to a large saucepan and bring contents to a boil
Step 2: Once boiling, turn down heat to low and let simmer for 1 hour, be sure to check on the water level.

Step 3: When chicken is fully cooked, turn off the heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Once cooled, transfer ingredients to your food processor or blender and puree into soup.

Baby’s Egg-Drop Soup

Ingredients:

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 4 cups of broth (any type)
  • 1 shake of pepper
  • 1 shake of garlic

Directions:

Step 1: Bring the broth to a boil and then let simmer.
Step 2: Beat the egg yolks in a small bowl and then SLOWLY add them to the broth. Whisk the egg yolks in the broth as you are adding them to the broth.You want to have nice little “threads” of egg yolk throughout the broth. If you add the yolks to quickly, they may end up cooking into a lump. This is fine if you wish to have a more lumpy egg drop soup.

Variations:

Cook a few of baby’s favorite veggies in the broth then remove the veggies. Add the yolks as shown above. Puree the cooked veggies and add them back into the soup.

Add some chunks of meats to the broth and then remove them prior to adding the egg yolks. Puree or shred the meat and then add back into the soup.

Thicken this soup by adding some silken tofu or baby cereal. Use less broth and more yolks to make this a smooshy finger food meal.


 

Beefy Barley Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound of beef stew cubes (uncooked & diced into smaller bits if bits are very large)
  • 2 carrots (peeled and diced)
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 parsnip
  • 1/2 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of barley (pearled barley)

Directions:

Step 1: Add all of the above ingredients to a large saucepan and bring contents to a boil.
Step 2: Once boiling, turn down heat to low and let simmer for 1 hour. Be sure to check on the water level. You may need to add more water to maintain a soupy consistency.

Step 3: When beef and barley are fully cooked, turn off the heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Once cooled, transfer ingredients to your food processor or blender and puree into soup.

Hint: Take out the parsnip before you puree; parsnips have a strong flavor that may overpower the soup.

Variation:

You may wish to remove the beef cubes and puree separately. Transfer the beef puree back to the pot and mix well. Add more barley to make this more of a mushy finger food meal.
