1 small cauliflower (around 300g) or 300g frozen florets
Remove the cauliflower leaves and chop the florets into small pieces.
Steam or boil the florets for 8-10 minutes or until tender. Drain, reserving some of the cooking water.
Add the florets to a blender along with 2-3tbsp of the cooking water. Blend until you have a smooth puree. Stir in some of baby's usual milk if desired.
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.
