Broccoli + Sweet potato puree

Broccoli provides beta-corotene, folate, potasium and vitamin C. It can be combined with potato to give a more creamy texture.

Obviously, Xavier hates the greens. I did not managed to cover the broccoli "green" smell when I first mixed with potato for him. He screamed and cried when I offered him the second spoonful.

Second attempt: I combined 2 table spoon of sweet potato, 1 tablespoon of broccoli and 1 tablspoon of brown rice. He finished everything !! Smart boy !! But he began to realise that there was broccoli mixture at the end when he was about to finish the mixture. Conclusion: Must really hide the greens from him.. !! Anyway, this was how I prepare the broccoli puree:

1. Broccoli florets
2. One cube of frozen sweet potato

1. Rinse the broccoli thoroughly and soak in water for about 15 minutes.
2. Discard the end stalks which are thick and hard.
3. Cut into florets.
4. Steam until tender for about 8 minutes.
5. Blend the cooked broccoli with some boiled water until smooth.
6. Add in the frozen sweet potato mixture and add the amount of ebm to get the desired consistency.
