“One sheet pan dishes are always a win”

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

  • Veggies. I choose green beans and tomatoes but feel free to use one or two veggies that you like. Peppers, carrots, zucchini, yellow squash would work well on this one.
  • Potatoes. Well, I know that potatoes are classified as vegetables. However, I count them on our carbohydrates intake as they are very starchy. I used Yukon gold potatoes on this recipe as I feel like they are the best for baking. Those potatoes have a creamy, almost buttery flavor and they melt in your mouth. Also, feel free to keep the skin on as lots of the nutrients are on the skin.
  • Salmon. I always use wild caught salmon fillets. We are lucky enough to leave in the pacific northwest where we have access to fresh wild caught salmon. Of course, you can use frozen fillets, just make sure that you properly defrost and pat them dry with a paper towel.
  • Pesto ingredients. Mint, basil, parmegianno regiano, walnuts, olive oil. I used a combination of main and basil but you can use what you want. Also, feel free to use any nuts that you like. Or to keep it nut free you can use any seeds, like sunflower or pumpkin seeds.

How to serve to babies

  1. You need to make sure that the pesto is smooth so I would suggest to use a nut butter like almond butter instead of whole nuts.
  2. Green beans might be crispy if you just bake it like I did in this recipe. If you want to serve this to a baby you can first steam the green beans and then use them bake it as I describe in this recipe.
  3. Also, make sure that you cut the tomatoes properly.
