Broccoli Baby Food

The introduction of contentious foods like broccoli at an early age may make for adventurous eaters. The perfect food for your baby’s growing taste buds at around 7 months is an array of vegetables steamed or lightly boiled and then puréed.

Game plan: To reheat the baby food, let it thaw completely in the refrigerator, then heat in the microwave or on the stovetop. Stir well before serving.

This recipe was featured as part of our Make Your Own Baby Food project.

Instructions

  1. 1Fill a large saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add broccoli and boil until it is bright green and just gives when pierced with a knife, about 3 minutes.
  2. 2Drain and place in a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. With the motor running, add the formula, water, or breast milk. Process until smooth, about 1 minute, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Let cool slightly, then divide into 1/4-cup portions, place in airtight containers, and refrigerate up to 5 days or freeze up to 6 weeks until ready to use.
