A Recipe for 6-9 Months

It’s just like Squaccoli, but you substitute the winter squash for sweet potato! It’s a delicious way to introduce greens into you child’s diet, as the mild, sweet potatoes tone down the strong broccoli flavor.
1 medium sweet potato
1 medium stalk broccoli
1/3 cup water
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wrap sweet potato in foil and bake for 40 minutes, or until soft.
Meanwhile, cut broccoli into small pieces and put in steamer. Steam for 5-6 minutes, or until broccoli is tender.
Let cooked sweet potato cool to the touch and peel off skin. Place peeled sweet potato 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.
