Coconut Curry Soup 1 of 9
This delicious recipe is so easy, it doesn't even need a recipe! Full of mild, naturally sweet flavors, everybody from baby to big people will appreciate this veggie-packed dish. I like making it with frozen cauliflower, but if you've got boiled potatoes around, that works, too!

How to Make It: Blend 1 can of coconut milk, 1/2 teaspoon mild yellow curry powder, and 1 cup frozen cauliflower or cooked potatoes together until pureed. Heat just until warm. Salt to taste. Spoon and enjoy!
Sag Paneer 2 of 9
A simple version of a classic Indian dish, grown-ups will love topping this with warmed paneer cubes, or Indian cheese. Babies won't need the cheese, but they'll love this flavorful meal, and you'll love knowing you're introducing their palate to gourmet global flavors. Since there's yogurt in the recipe, it's not recommended for babies younger than 6 months.

How to Make It: Puree 4 cups of frozen spinach, 1 small clove of garlic, 1 teaspoon garam masala, and 3/4 cup yogurt or coconut yogurt.
Blueberry Soup 3 of 9
Introduce your baby to blueberries and treat mama to a smoothie with this simple recipe that serves everyone in your family! It's a win-win: You get all the antioxidants you need in a delicious treat, and baby gets familiarized with nutrition-packed raw fruits.

How to Make It: Blend 2 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries with 1 cup unsweetened apple, pear, or pomegranate juice. Pop 1 cup in a glass for the grownups, and microwave the rest until barely warm for a baby-friendly puree!
