Author: Michele Olivier


  • 1 head of organic broccoli roughly 16 ounces, cut into florets
  • 1 organic apple peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/2 tsp chives roughly chopped


  • In a medium saucepan, bring 2 inches of water to a boil over medium heat. Place the broccoli florets into a steamer basket over the boiling water, cover and steam for 7-8 minutes or until tender. Let cool slightly and reserve steamer water.
  • Transfer the broccoli and chives to a blender or food processor and puree for 1-2 minutes on hight or until you reach your desired consistency, adding reserved water, breast milk, formula, water or broth in 1/4 increments if needed.


Age: 4 months and up
Yield: 16 ounces
Apple Note: I added in 1 apple to this puree for a smoother consistency. You can also use 1 small white potato (peeled and chopped), a pear (peeled, cored and chopped) or nothing at all.
Storage: Fridge – store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Freezer – can be frozen for up to 4 months (this and this are my favorite freezer storage containers).
