Egg and Peach Mash
TIP: Short on time? Instead of preparing your own peach purée, use a jar or squeeze pouch of baby peach purée instead.
Yield: ¾ cup
Servings: 1 serving
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes to steam peaches, 12 minutes to boil eggs
Total Time: 37 minutes
- 2 ripe peaches, peeled, cored and diced
- 1 large egg
- ¼ cup (60 mL) mashed ripe banana
Prep and Cook
- 1Steam or boil diced peaches until very tender. Drain if necessary and mash or purée until you have your desired consistency. Let cool slightly then place in a sealed container in the fridge until ready to use.
- 2Place your egg in a small pot and cover with cold water. The water should be about an inch or so higher than the egg. Cover the pot with a lid. Over high heat, bring your eggs to a rolling boil.
- 3Remove from heat and let stand for 12 minutes.
- 4Drain water and immediately run cold water over egg until cooled. Rapid cooling helps prevent a green ring from forming around the yolks.
- 5Peel egg and place in a bowl. Mash very well.
- 6Combine egg with ¼ cup (60 mL) puréed peaches and mashed banana. Mash together well until you have your desired consistency. Add a little breast milk or formula to thin if you like.
