2 large sweet potatoes
3 large carrots
2 inch chunk of ginger, peeled
1-2 cloves of garlic
Water to thin out
1 can coconut milk
Salt and pepper, to taste

Peel sweet potatoes and carrots and chop into 1 inch chunks. Fill a medium sauce pot ¾ full and place a steamer basket on top. Wrap ginger and garlic in tin foil and add to steamer basket along with chopped carrots and sweet potatoes. Steam veggies for 30 minutes until they are very tender. Remove ginger and garlic, set aside. Add carrots and sweet potatoes to a blender and puree until smooth. Add a splash of water if you need to loosen the mixture.
For Baby Food
Remove half of puree and store in small resealable containers in your fridge or ice cube trays in the freezer. Â
Add coconut milk to your remaining sweet potato and carrot puree in the blender, reserving 2 tbsp for garnish. Next add steamed garlic and ginger, puree until smooth. Reheat in a sauce pot and season with salt and pepper to taste. Ladle into bowls and garnish with a drizzle of remaining coconut milk and chopped chives. Serve with toasted bread, enjoy!
