This broccoli, apple and white beans recipe can either be made as a puree for your littlest or served as baby led weaning. Made with just 3 simple ingredients, the plant based puree, or the finger food, is all made in one pot. The puree is great for make ahead freezer baby meals.


  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/3 cup white beans, rinsed


  • In a medium saucepan, bring 2 inches of water to a boil. Place all of the ingredients into a steamer basket, cover and cook for 8-10 minutes or until apples and broccoli can be easily pricked with a fork. Let cool slightly. Reserve steamer water.

  • To serve as a finger food or Baby-Led Weaning, place on a plate and serve to baby. I like to gently smash the cooked beans so they are a little easier to grip for baby.
