Puree Monday - Creamy Cauliflower



This was one of Bebe B’s favorite vegetable purees.  She loved it way more then mashed potatoes, which was wonderful since cauliflower is full of vitamins and fiber!  I still make this recipe in our house except I no longer need the food processor...I can just mash the steamed cauliflower with a wooden spoon.  Sometimes we even sprinkle in a little cheese and voila...a healthy side dish!


Creamy Cauliflower - 6 Months
1 head of cauliflower
1 tbsp unsalted butter or non-hydrogenated spread
 such as Earth Balance
1 tsp paprika
water for steaming
Breast Milk or formula (optional)

Clean cauliflower well and cut into small to medium size florets. Steam the florets in either a steaming basket on the stove or in the Beaba babycook.  If using the babycook fill water to the 2 mark for a full basket of cauliflower florets.  If steaming on the stove use about 1-2 inch of water and steam for about 10-12 minutes.  Allow the cauliflower to cool to almost room temperature then puree with the butter and paprika till a smooth and creamy consistency is reached.  You may need to add a little Breast Milk or formula depending on the texture you desire. This recipe will keep up to 3 days in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer. This recipe will fill about 3 ice cube trays (15-30 servings).   

This recipe is vegetarian and gluten-free.
