Lamb Soup For Young Ones

(0 rating - rate this recipe)
If you have a baby or toddler in your household, a simple beef or lamb and vegetable soup is a handy meal. Keep flavours basic, then when the soup is cooked you can scoop out cooked meat and purée it with some of the vegetables through a mouli for baby. The well-cooked meat is easy to purée and of course there's plenty of tasty liquid to moisten it so it's just the right consistency for the baby. For adults you can season the soup to suit.
