I actually don’t like broccoli myself, but I’m determined that my girls will have a more adventurous palette.  Following our 9 month checkup, my pediatrician told me that they should eat more protein, and can eat dairy like yogurt and cheeses.

I thought this was a perfect opportunity to add in broccoli (green veggies have been met with limited success until this point), and add some cheddar cheese.  Because everything is better with cheese!

I used frozen broccoli for convenience.  Here’s the super easy recipe made in my NUK Cook-n-Blend.

1/2 bag frozen broccoli (this filled the steamer about half way also)

2/3 cup water (water setting no. 2)

Steamed for 14 minutes (per water setting no. 2).  This may have been a smidge long, but with frozen broccoli I gave it a little longer than probably necessary.

Blend broccoli in steaming water after dumping half out.

Add 1 slice of cheddar cheese, broken into small pieces.  Blend on coarse.

Makes: approx 8 oz of baby food.

Verdict: delicious!
