Mushroom, lentil and pepper stew

Suitable for 10 months+

Lentils are a great standby, and you can make an easy meal with vegetables you’ll usually have in the fridge. This combination is also a great source of iron.

4 baby portions


  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion (60g / 2oz), finely chopped
  • 1 small carrot, (60g / 2oz) finely chopped
  • Half a red pepper (80g / 2 ¾ oz), finely chopped
  • 60g / 2oz mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 100g (3 ½ oz) red lentils
  • 200g (7 oz) canned chopped tomatoes
  • 30g (1 oz) currants
  • 400ml (14oz) water
  • 1 tsp of chopped coriander
