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.
