Christmas Leftover Veggies (using BabyFood Pro)

We all buy too much at Christmas and we are often left with seasonal vegetables like Brussel sprouts and a bulk of root vegetables. Using these extra vegetables is a great way to expand on the variety of vegetables that you give your baby. Why not try a vegetable casserole that can be blended into a puree or “pulsed” into a chunkier meal?
