I wanted to try something adventurous today after the banana pancake success yesterday. I have a million ideas running through my head and decided to start with courgette.
I love courgettes. They are so versatile and soft and I thought they’d be a good option for BLW. Dex had already tried some courgette purée and loved it so I hoped these mini courgette pizzas would be as successful.
Et voilà! Ready to serve. As usual, I used my Munchkin White Hot plates to ensure the food wasn’t too hot and placed two pizzas on Dex’s high chair.
He found them quite difficult to pick up because they were so soft and slippery so the first two I did have to hand to him. I realised I should have cut more finger like pieces perhaps. However, by the fifth one he was picking up small pieces of cheese that had fallen off with his pincer grip, so perhaps it was good practise for him.
Also, after the first two I cut the skins off, mainly because they weren’t as soft as the inner flesh but also because he kept spitting them out.
He devoured the lot. (What’s new?) I think I’ll try again tomorrow with a mixture of finger sized bits and circular bits, but offer more. This kid can’t get enough.
Let me know if you give these mini courgette pizzas a try.
