Ingredients

  • 150g Quality Mark lamb’s liver, sliced
  • ½ carrot, peeled and diced
  • ½ courgette, diced or ¼ cup frozen peas
  • 1 kumara (or potato or pumpkin), peeled and diced

Method

To prepare the liver, peel away the fine covering of the skin and discard any tough tubular bits.

Cut into several slices about 1cm thick and gently pan fry for 5-8 minutes.

Cook the vegetables in about ¾ cup of water until soft. Drain the vegetables, keeping the cooking water.

Mix the drained vegetables with the liver and serve as appropriate, either puréed or diced.

Babies 6-7 months

  • Purée the liver and vegetables with the vegetable cooking liquid. If necessary, pass through a sieve.

Babies 8-9 months

  • Serve as cooked, or with the liver diced to give different textures.

  • When first introducing liver to your baby, keep a piece in the freezer and simply grate off the amount required each time. Add the frozen shavings to simmering, almost cooked vegetables in the final 5 minutes of cooking. Mash or purée the vegetable/liver mix.
  • Avoid giving your baby more than three teaspoons (15 grams) of liver a week. While liver is an excellent source of iron, it is also rich in Vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for health but too much can be harmful.
  • You can store leftover serves in ice-cube trays in the freezer. Heat each serve as required.

Keep in mind that in parts of world liver is a big NO for under 1yr-olds, as it's high in vitamin A and may be a health risk if used regularly.
