Steps: Makes about 2 cups

  1. Steam 4 cups broccoli florets until tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. Cool slightly and transfer to a blender with 1/4 cup water.
  3. Blend until desired consistency, adding a bit of water if needed to help it blend. Stir into 3/4 cup Apple Purée (recipe below)

Apple Purée: Makes 2 cups


  • 4 Medium apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • Once you’ve successfully fed your baby just apples, add a flavour kick by adding 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger for next time
  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 inches of water to a simmer. Place a steamer basket over the water. Add the apple chunks. Cover and steam until tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly.
  2. Transfer the apples to a food processor or blender. Process until you get the desired consistency for your baby, adding a tablespoon or more water to the blender if needed to help it blend.
