Nectarine blended with cauliflower is a yummy mix of both savory and sweet flavors. This puree is absolutely delicious and packed with nutrients. It’s also a great snack for toddlers. When our three-year-old saw the baby having some, she wanted it too—and she had seconds! If you have a picky eater who turns her nose up at veggies, try giving her some of this puree. She just might like it!
This stage two baby food recipe is suitable for babies 7-9 months and up. Always make sure the consistency of your baby’s food is one she can handle. Before combining foods, make sure your baby has tried each one individually first with no reaction to it.
Nectarine Cauliflower Mish Mash
(makes about 12 oz.)
Note: Use organic ingredients whenever possible.
1 nectarine—washed, peeled and chopped
2 cups of cauliflower florets—washed
Pour water into a pot until it is about one inch deep and bring to a boil over high heat. Place the nectarine and cauliflower into a steamer basket and put the basket in the pot. Make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the basket. Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid and steam for about 7 minutes, until the cauliflower is very soft.
Place the nectarine and cauliflower into the bowl of your food processor and pulse until mushy, but not completely smooth. Alternatively, place the nectarine and cauliflower into a mixing bowl and blend with an immersion blender. If necessary, add a little breast milk, formula or water while blending to achieve the desired consistency.
Nectarine cauliflower mish mash will stay fresh in an airtight container for up to three days in the fridge and up to three months in the freezer. Enjoy!
