Here’s a healthy alternative from Lisa Barnes to the standard mashed potatoes often served at mealtime – Organic Whipped Cauliflower for Babies! Not just a nutritious puree for babies, it can also be a delicious side for the whole family! Lisa Barnes is the author of the popular The Petit Appetit Cookbook, a true gem of a cookbook!

Organic Whipped Cauliflower for Babies


Cauliflower or Broccoli, 1 large head
Unsalted butter, 2 Tbsp


Trim cauliflower and cut into similar-sized florets. Put florets in a pot with cold water to cover. Put lid on pot, bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and boil just until cauliflower is tender, 15-18 minutes. Be careful not to overcook, or cauliflower will separate and fall apart. Drain.

While still hot, purée cauliflower with butter in a food processor until very smooth and creamy.

To store: Refrigerate cooled cauliflower purée in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or fill ice-cube trays or larger containers to freeze for up to three months.
