Ingredients

Method

  • 1/3 small head cauliflower (about 140 g/5 oz), cut into small florets

Ingredients

Method

  1. Steam or boil the cauliflower in a saucepan over a medium heat for 8–10 minutes until very tender.
  2. Adding 4–5 tablespoons boiled water, purée the cauliflower in a food processor, or using a hand blender, until smooth.

Fun for little ones

Cauliflower looks like mini sheep or fluffy clouds! Chat to your little one about how different foods look and feel so they can explore them with all their senses.

Swap this for that

Once your little one is used to plain cauliflower, why not try adding a pinch of cumin or paprika to mix it up?

Top tip

You can thin all the purées using your baby’s usual milk, if you prefer!
