The other day we prepared a chicken pot with vegetables , and today, continuing with the meat purées, we are going to prepare a veal pot with vegetables that we can offer to our baby from 6 months .
Remind you that we should not cook the meat at the same time as the vegetables since the cooking times are different, that of the meat is much shorter and if we cook it in excess we will lose its nutritional value. We can add it at the end as we did with the chicken pot in Thermomix , make it in a pan or in the microwave, today we are going to do it in the latter way.
Cooking meat for baby food in the microwave is great because we do it very quickly, thus preserving the nutrients and not staining any pan. To do this we must eliminate all the fat that we can and we will cut the amount of meat that our pediatrician has recommended into pieces and put them on a plate, cover it with another plate of the same diameter and leave it for 1 or 2 minutes at maximum power, you will see that release water, but it is their own juice that we will not throw away.

Preparation of the veal stew with vegetables
Cook the chopped vegetables in water until soft, drain and reserve the cooking water. Cut the meat, cook it in the microwave for a minute or a little more if necessary.
Put the vegetables, the meat with its juice and some of the water from cooking the vegetables in the blender glass and blend. If you see that you do not have the consistency that your baby likes, you can add more cooking broth.
As always this is just an idea, you can vary the vegetables according to seasonality or the tastes of your baby. Tell you that with these amounts I have gotten three containers that my baby eats because he still eats little.
