Baby Food For Thought: Broccoli and Olive Oil Puree

We are back sharing our favorite “baby food for thought” recipes. This weeks recipe is a broccoli and olive oil puree that we are sure your little one will love!


  • 2 cups broccoli, chopped into small florets.
  • 1 small white potato, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


1. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 inches of water to a boil over medium heat.

2. Place the broccoli and potato into a steamer basket and place over boiling water. Steam for 12-15 minutes or until the broccoli and potato are tender. Reserve water from steamer. Let cool slightly.

3. Add the broccoli, potato and olive oil into a blender or food processor and puree until smooth, adding water from steamer in 1/4 cup increments if needed.

 4. Feed puree to your little one. You’re going to want to have a Ziggy Baby bib on hand!


Pro tip: Want to save your leftovers? You can refrigerate for up to 4 days and freeze for up to 4 months. Make sure you store in an airtight container. Place leftover puree into a ice cube tray and freeze for easy storage and reuse purposes.
