Ingredients

Makes 4–7 portions

  • 150g cauliflower florets
  • 1 level tbsp cornflour
  • 2 level tbsp full fat spread, e.g. olive or sunflower spread
  • 150ml full fat cows' milk (or baby's usual milk if they are under 6 months old)
  • 25g cheddar cheese, finely grated

Method

  1. Wash cauliflower and steam for 8–10 mins until soft. Cool slightly.
  2. Mix flour, spread and milk with food processor or hand blender.
  3. Pour into a microwaveable container and cook for 45 secs at full power. Remove and stir.
  4. Microwave for another 15–30 secs until the sauce is thickened. Stir in grated cheese and cool slightly again.
  5. Blend cauliflower and sauce with a food processor or hand blender until smoothy. Add more milk if you need.
Say 'cheese'! Our cauliflower cheese is sure to bring out a smile or two

Remember

  • Your baby’s food should be served at body temperature – so it shouldn’t feel either hot or cold on the inside of your wrist.
  • Freeze excess food in ice cube trays, covered with a lid or cling film, and sealed in a plastic bag – write the date on the bag. Purées can be kept frozen for up to 1 month.
