I was reminded recently of something I used to do with my purees. Add a little extra virgin olive oil as you purée. This will give a nice added flavor and help improve consistency, especially for freezing. The other thing you can do once you begin finger foods is to cook a while box of whole wheat pasta. Let it cool, then mix with a little extra virgin olive oil and separate into bags or containers for freezing. Keep the portions to a size that you will use within a few days of thawing. Once thawed, the pasta won’t stick together and has a nice flavor thanks to the oil.
Be sure to use high quality extra virgin olive oil and only apply after cooking as high cooking temperatures aren’t good for olive oil.
