  • 200g Brussels sprouts, washed

  1. Remove any large outer leaves and trip the bases of the sprouts. Cut an X into the trimmed base for even cooking. Steam the Brussels sprouts for 6 minutes until soft when pierced with a sharp knife.

  2. Add the tender Brussels sprouts to a blender with 2-3tbsp of the cooking water from the steamer, or 2-3tbsp of cooled, boiled water or baby's usual milk. Blitz until you have a smooth puree.

  3. Once it is cool enough, serve a little of the puree to baby. Leave the rest to cool completely, then divide into portions in an ice cube tray and freeze for up to 1 month. Defrost, covered, in the fridge overnight or in the microwave. Once defrosted, reheat to piping, then allow to cool before giving to baby.
