Posted by Christen Babb
So, it’s fun to say. And it’s a delicious way to introduce greens into your little one’s diet, as the mild, sweet winter squash tones down the strong broccoli flavor.
1 medium winter squash*
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium stalk broccoli
1/3 cup water
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut winter squash in half; scoop out seeds. Coat squash halves in olive oil and bake for 60 minutes, or until flesh is soft.
Meanwhile, cut broccoli into small pieces and put in steamer. Steam for 5-6 minutes, or until broccoli is tender.Let cooked winter squash cool to the touch and scoop out flesh from skin. Place peeled squash in blender, along with broccoli florets and blend until completely smooth. Add water if necessary to achieve desired consistency.
Distribute mixture evenly amongst ice cube trays or cupcake tins, dependent upon desired portion size.
*You can substitute fresh winter squash with frozen, organic pureed winter squash. It’s readily available at most grocery stores and makes for a great time saver! Just heat squash in microwave and add to pureed broccoli.
