Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

Broccoli Rocks!

Posted by 3 years ago 3 Comments

Little Bean is almost to the point of eating whatever we’re eating. More and more I’m simply pureeing one or two items from my dinner plate. Last week we gave broccoli a whirl.

How’d it go?

Find out in our latest Adventure…

I grabbed 5-6 florets from the broccoli I made for dinner. It was frozen that I roasted on a cookie sheet in the oven.

Even at this age I like to involve him in the process by letting him check out the whole broccoli. I think it does wonders.

Add enough water to blend.
For smooth broccoli you are better off with a little more water than normal.

Puree.
Again I used my bullet for this.

Little Bean was Hungry!
Here he is gnawing on my lens cap.

Add the Rice.
I used single grain brown rice baby cereal to thicken the broccoli. If you happen to have brown rice for dinner yourself just use that and pop it back in the blender.

Thicken
Find the right texture for your baby. Little Bean handles the thicker stuff pretty well.

All done!
He did good. I waited to see if he would get extra gassy but no problems yet. I’ll be pureeing a few florets for him when we have broccoli for dinner from now on!
