When Baby is ready to start on solids, this Carrot Baby Food Puree Recipe is a great first choice due to its soft consistency and sweet taste.
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 14 oz.
  • 1 pound Carrots
  • 2¾ cups Water, divided
  1. Wash and peel your carrots, then slice into thin ¼ in. pieces.
  2. Place the carrots pieces in your Instant Pot and pour 1½ cup water over the carrots.
  3. Place the lid on your Instant Pot, and select Steam, High Pressure, and change cook time to 5 minutes.
  4. Preheating will begin 10 seconds after settings are selected.
  5. Once the carrots are done, do a quick release. {I like to do a gradual quick release to avoid any messy splatters... basically a quick release of steam, in a few gradual nudges}.
  6. Remove softened Carrots from Instant Pot and add to Blender or Food Processor.
  7. Pour 1¼ cup water over the carrots and blend or pulse {stirring as necessary}, until you reach a desired consistency.
  8. Transfer Carrot Puree to OXO Tot baby Blocks, pop on lids, and store in Refrigerator or Freezer.
  9. Pull out one at a time, and allow to come to room temperature prior to feeding baby.
It will take around 8 minutes for your Instant Pot to initially reach pressure before cooking begins.
