Cauliflower and potatoes

When starting on solid food for your baby at 6 months remember that for the first 12 months his main food should be breastmilk. Solid food is more about exploring tastes and flavours than nutrition for the first year. However, the greater variety of food you introduce to your baby, the wider (and more nutritious) his diet will be later in life.

Caulitatoes

Cauliflower and potatoes - blended together until smooth and creamy. The mild potatoes are a good complement to the “cabbagy” flavoured cauliflower.

Ingredients:
2 cups cauliflower florets

3 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 tbsp. unsalted butter

Preparation:
Steam or boil cauliflower for 5-6 minutes, or until tender. Set aside.
In pot of water, add potatoes and bring to a rolling boil. Boil for about 10 minutes, until potatoes are fork tender.
Drain and potatoes and cool slightly.
Combine potatoes, cauliflower, ¼ cup of boiling liquid, and butter and mash together until smooth; add more water if necessary.

Place mixture into ice cube trays and freeze to use later.

This vegetable recipe is suitable for babies between 6 and 9 months when baby is still getting used to new tastes and textures. You can make it smooth or chunky.
