Greetings from Baby Food Making Central!
I just whipped up a nice batch of baby food cauliflower and cheddar spinach! Yum! Doesn’t that sound great? It was SO easy; here’s what you do…
Start off by boiling your water, then wash and chop up the cauliflower. Toss them in the boiling water for about 15-20 minutes, or until soft enough to cut with a spoon. Scoop them out of the pot with a slated spoon and into your blender.
Blend until you get the consistency that your baby will like. Taylor is kind of a stage 2 girl now, so I don’t mind if there are a few small chunks. If you’d like to make your cauliflower (or any veggie for that matter) creamier, add a couple ounces of formula or breast milk as you are blending.
Plop a large spoon full into your ice cube trays, cover and freeze.
Once the cubes are good and frozen, pop them out of the trays, bag them up, and don’t forget to label them. I always add a ‘use by date’ on my storage bags for 2 months out.
Next up, Cheesy Spinach!
After about 5 minutes, it should be ready to blend. Scoop the spinach out of the water with a slated spoon. It will full of water, so leave as much behind as you can.
If this is the first time your baby is trying spinach, I don’t recommend you add the cheddar cheese. Since I’ve had Taylor try some cheeses now and I know she tolerates them well, I thought she’d enjoy this. I just topped the warm spinach with shredded cheddar. Once it melted most of the way, I covered the trays and froze.
I also made baby food blueberries! She is going to LOVE these! I am going to mix these with plain yogurt, apples, or serve plain.
