Ingredients

Method

  • 150g / 5½ oz Brussels sprouts

Ingredients

Method

  1. Cut off the base of the sprouts and remove the outer leaves.
  2. Cut the sprouts in halves or quarters and steam over a medium heat for about 10–12 minutes until very tender (steaming is best as boiled sprouts can taste bitter).
  3. Purée the sprouts with 4–5 tablespoons of boiled water in a food processor, or using a hand blender, until smooth.

Swap this for that

To make the taste a little more familiar, why not blend with your baby's usual milk instead of water

Fun for little ones

If your little one pulls a funny face, don't worry it's just reeeally new. Remeber, it can take 8 tries before learning to accept a new food
