Green Beans

For those of you that have made frozen green beans, after you cook them, do you just throw them in the food processor until they come out like a puree? I am trying to figure out texture for my 5 mos. old. TIA

  • ok thanks. So I am imaging it to look almost liquid or like a pesto sauce, does this sound right?

  • yes, it came out just a bit thicker then water.  You can add some cereal to thicken it up.  We left it a but chunky just because my guy is a bit older.

  • I don't know if this happened to you Sally but when I did mine, I had the "Strings" or the little vines from the beans in the puree and I didn't notice this until after I had frozen my batch [ :( ] so I had to strain the green beans after defrosting each cube.

  • I just steamed and pureed in the mini-food processor we have until they were very smooth.  I didn't end up with any strings or really any chunks left over... it was a pretty smooth puree.  Pesto is probably a good comparison.  I will say though, I am not crazy about the way they thaw out... runny and lumpy and have to be "worked" to even look edible.  Don't know how to fix that one.

  • I did this with broccoli. I added in pumped breastmilk to get it to the consistancy I wanted.

  • Looks like I'm the only one, but DD just eats green beans.  No pureeing.

    Same here. I've actually never pureed any of the food that I've cooked for him, I just dice most things up. But he loves to hold on to the whole green beans and bite off little pieces.

  • Same here I use a food processor and I use a strainer to get all the string, chunks out. I thicken them up with  a tiny bit of oatmeal.
