Broccoli and Sweet Potato Puree

21 Sep

This is a super simple recipe for baby food. You can give this well pureed from 6 months as long as baby has already had broccoli or sweet potato before.

Now that Zozo’s bigger, I don’t puree it as much as I did before. And I add some meat or cheese just before serving it. I usually make a huge batch and freeze it for later use.

Some people have a BabyCook but we already had a steamer and a hand mixer, so why spend more $$ for something that’s gonna do the same thing anyway?

There’s really no real measurement for this recipe. If you want the more broccoli taste then add more, if you’re not a fan (or your baby’s not a fan) then add less.

Here’s what I used:


1 head of broccoli

2 sweet potatoes

a bit of water to thin down the mixture (the sweet potato’s a bit starchy) – use formula or breastmilk if you prefer.




1. Cut everything up as evenly as possible. This way, the veggies are cooked at the same time.


2. Put in steaming basket and steam for 20 minutes or until everything is soft.


3. Put everything in a bowl, or your blender if you’re blending, and mix away until you reach your desired texture.


4. Add your preferred liquid to thin down the mixture.



I usually thin it down a bit more using water/formula and add a bit of olive oil just before serving. If I’m adding meat, I cook the meat separately, puree, then add it to the mix.

This time I added parmesan cream cheese.



I bought a pack of 3 ice cube trays to store Zozo’s food in. Once they’re frozen I transfer them to freezer bags labeled with what’s in them and the date they’re made.


Easy peasy.  I only spent maybe 3 euros for this batch. And the best part is – Zozo gets to eat fresh food make with love.
