Preparing baby food at home in a pressure cooker is the ideal method for preserving essential nutrients and vitamins in food. Feeding your baby a variety of dishes made with wholesome ingredients helps develop a broader palate over time. Our quick pressure cooker recipe takes only 4 minutes to cook once the cooker is pressurized.

1

Cut carrot into approximately ½-inch thick slices. Wash bell pepper and cut into 1-inch long pieces. Dice peeled potato. Dice salmon (these should be diced about the same size).

2

Fill pressure cooker, such as Fissler vitavit® premium, with 1¼ cups of water. Use tripod to place perforated steamer inset into the pressure cooker. Add vegetables, potatoes and fish.

3

Close pressure cooker in accordance with instructions, set control valve in lid to 1 (gentle setting), and heat to a high temperature. When yellow ring appears, turn heat to low. When green ring appears, cook for 4 minutes. After cooking time has finished, allow steam to escape from pressure cooker and open in accordance with instructions.

4

Place vegetable-fish mixture, orange juice and canola oil into a bowl. Use a hand-held blender to purée ingredients to desired consistency. As needed, add boiling water. If you do not have a hand-held blender, place in a food processor or blender and then purée. Be sure the mixture has cooled to an appropriate temperature before you feed your baby.
