Broccoli is one of my FAVORITE vegetables! I love it baked and sautéed with eggs in the morning…. YUM!
It’s full of fiber, vitamins and even contains a fair amount of protein! #Winning 🙂
To prepare your baby’s broccoli:
Cut the florets off of your fresh broccoli and put them in a strainer to wash thoroughly. Once washed, add the broccoli florets to a medium pot with a 1/2 inch of water in it. (If you are using frozen broccoli, just skip this step and move on to the cooking part!)
On medium to high heat, bring the water to a low simmer. Once simmering, drop the heat to low, cover and let steam for 10-15 minutes (or until the broccoli is tender). You will be able to smell your broccoli when it is done! (YIPPEE).
When your broccoli is done cooking, add to your blender and puree. The florets will hold onto some of the cooking liquid, but you might need to add a bit more. Add small amounts at a time because, remember, you can always add more!
Freeze for easy storage for up to a month!
TIP: for some reason, the broccoli seems to take longer to defrost than other vegetables. I like to take mine out and defrost them separately in the morning or nuke it in the microwave before his other blocks of food.
