Babyled was founded off the back of basic parenting worries, weaning, Keith and his wife decided to introduce their new baby when it was time to wean to a mixed feeding routine of solid and purees, developing a spread that can be mixed into pasta or made into a little sandwich, Its such a unique way to deal with the cross over between BLW and Traditional weaning which usually is full of arguments on which one is best.
Our weaning journey was extremely different, I found Robin to not be ready when it came time for her to wean into solid food, at six months she still had the reflex to push food out of her mouth when given some, We went down the traditional weaning route with purees that increase texture as she got older and a mixture of jars and homemade products.
As she got older, we still had plenty of these early stage purees in the cupboard, which prompted me to create little pies or pinwheels that she or even Kai and Amelia devoured whenever I made them, So when I was sent these cute little jars of Babyled spreads I had to make some little puff pies for them to enjoy.
I of course had to use the Spicy Pumpkin and Chickpea spread for this little pie, seeing as its pumpkin spice season, there was just enough inside the jar for two puff pies, using Tesco ready made puff pastry that I find always useful to have stored in the fridge for just such an occasion.
Cut up the pastry to the idea size, I went with two rectangle shapes so there was plenty to create a little lid to seal it all up, pour on the spread, dab a small amount of water along the edge of the pastry and using the back of a fork, crimp to prevent spillage. I then brushed the top of the pastry with some milk to give it that extra crunch and popped into the oven for 25 minutes, according to the instructions on the ready roll puff pastry.
Once that is all done and out of the oven, I let them cool before giving them to the children, of course because I have more than one I cut the two puff pies up and before I knew it, all three of my children had devoured them and asked for more.
Which in my eyes is a good sign of a yummy meal!
