Learn how to make broccoli puree baby food from Petit Organics founder Michelle Muller-Marinis in this Howcast video.


I'm going to review how to make broccoli puree for babies at home. Unfortunately, broccoli is one of those vegetables that have a really bad reputation. And is also very challenging to prepare in a palatable manner for children. So, I'm going to give you one of my best tricks from my won kitchen. So, most people think that boiling or steaming is the way to go for broccoli. But actually, is to get a nice earthy creamy flavor is by roasting. So, I set my oven at 375 degrees. And I've prepared the crowns of broccoli in roughly, the same size pieces, about one to two inches. As long as they're uniform that's the key here. Because you want them cook nice and even while they're in the oven. So, we're going to go ahead and put these in and they'll cook to about five to seven minutes. 

So, it's been about five to seven minutes. We're going to check on the broccoli. Great. This is perfect. As you can see it's a nice vibrant green. It's not burned. And we know it is ready to go. So, let's slide this into our blender. And we want to add a little bit of water for movement. And then, we'll puree this for about 45 seconds to a minute. 

So, after about 45 seconds to a minute it'll be nice an pureed. And we can go ahead and plate it. It is ready to serve. And that's how you make broccoli puree for babies.
