Sneaky Chef Purple Purée
The blueberries in this purée give it a fun color and also hide the fact that there's actually a vegetable in it as well, making it a great sneaky and delicious way to get your kid to eat some spinach.
- 3 Cups baby spinach leaves
- 1 1/2 Cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1-2 Tablespoon water
Raw baby spinach should be rinsed well, even if the package says "prewashed." If you’re using frozen blueberries, give them a quick rinse under cold water to thaw a little, and then drain.
Place the spinach in the food processor first and pulse a few times. This will reduce the spinach significantly. Next add the blueberries and 1 tablespoon of water; purée on high until as smooth as possible. Stop occasionally to push the contents to the bottom. If necessary, use another tablespoon of water to create a smooth purée.
This recipe makes about 1 cup of purée; double it if you want to store another cup. It will keep in the refrigerator up to 3 days, or you can freeze 1⁄4-cup portions in sealed plastic bags or small plastic containers.
