Cauliflower Puree - Homemade Baby Food

Another great food choice for your baby, cauliflower is packed with all kinds of nutrients!!
Like broccoli, it has a stronger taste, so it probably shouldn't be one of your babies first foods! 

*Helpful hint: cauliflower mixes good with other baby food purees including apples, broccoli, green beans, peas, squash and zucchini. I've seen some suggestions where they recommend waiting until your baby is 8-10 months before introducing cauliflower, but others say it can be introduced at 6 months. Like any other aspect of parenting, do your research and decide for yourself I guess ;) 
(the reason for waiting to introduce it until later has to do with digestion- it can cause some gas which isn't always pleasant for younger babies, as well as it's stronger taste)

So here you go:

1. Wash and cut cauliflower florets into small pieces.

2. Steam cauliflower. This only takes about 10 minutes. You want the cauliflower to be soft when pierced with a fork. *Save a small glass of the water you used from steaming your cauliflower to thin your puree... or breast milk is another great option*

3. Puree cauliflower to desired consistency. Use a blender or food processor. (I use our Ninja blender single-serving option)

4. Pour into ice cube trays and freeze. Once frozen, transfer cubes to freezer bags for easy storage!


*PS... Cauliflower mixes good with carrot & sweet potato.
