broccoli and sweet potato puree
  • 175g sweet potato
  • 100g broccoli floret
  • 30ml baby’s usual milk

    Peel the sweet potato and cut into chunks. Place in a pan, fill with just enough water to cover and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Add the broccoli florets to the pan; cover and cook for 5 minutes. The vegetables should now be tender.

  • Step 3

    Drain. Add the milk to the pan and then use a stick blender to blend the vegetables to form a smooth, lump free puree. Serve at room temperature or chilled.

  1. Egg free, gluten free and vegetarian.
  2. In the first few weeks of weaning, aim for a runny texture similar to single cream.
