Pumpkin and Parsnip Puree (Stage 2 - Combo's):

You will only want to make this for you little one if they have tried one or both of the main ingredients (pumpkin and parsnip). 
What you need:
1 Parsnip
Fresh Pumpkin (you can use canned pumpkin but be sure to check the label first)
Nutmeg (optional)
Cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp chopped fresh chives (optional)
What to do:
Peel the parsnip and pumpkin and cut into chunks
Steam the pumpkin and parsnip together until they are tender enough to puree
Blend in your food processor (or favorite pureeing devise) until you reach the desired consistency for your baby
If you have introduced spices/seasonings to your little one and you wish to add one or all of the optional ingredients above you can sprinkle on the pumpkin and parsnip before beginning to puree.  You can also add at the end (when you are a couple of seconds away from the desires consistency) the final seconds of pureeing will incorporate your seasonings throughout.
