Garbanzo Bean and Pumpkin Puree

My little one absolutely loves garbanzo beans (so do I),  and I'm finding out that they taste good mixed with almost anything! This is a simple puree that is full of Vitamin A, iron, protein and other essential nutrients for your little one. This is for babies 6+ months.

Here's what you'll need:
2 oz pumpkin puree
2 oz garbanzo bean puree
pinch cinnamon
pinch ground sage

There are a few different options with pumpkin. You can cut, peel and bake pumpkin at 350F for 30 minutes, cut, peel and steam pumpkin for 15 or so minutes, or you can use canned organic pumpkin. If you  use canned pumpkin make sure that it is 100% pumpkin and not pumpkin pie mix. I use canned or jarred organic garbanzo beans. Rinse them thoroughly, and then puree with filtered water. Mix pumpkin and garbanzo puree, add cinnamon and sage. Serve and enjoy!
