Add tablespoons of water (or breast milk or formula) as needed to the blender or food processor to help the purée blend smoothly. Scrape down the sides frequently. To thicken a purée, stir in a little baby cereal. Recipe from Real Baby Food by Jenna Helwig.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium saucepan, bring the beef broth to a boil. Add the steak, making sure it is covered by the broth (add a bit more if necessary). Place the florets on top of the steak—they don't need to be submerged. Cover the pan, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 15 minutes or until the steak is cooked through and the broccoli is very tender. Cool slightly.

  • With a blender, food processor, or knife and fork, purée or mash the beef and broccoli until you get the desired consistency. Makes about 2 cups.
