Broccoli Cheese Soup/Mash For 8 Months+ Baby

11

Say cheese!!! Do you like cheese? I am not a great fan of cheese though I indulge in them, once in two weeks or so.

When it came to my baby, she has got her father’s taste buds; she loves cheese! So when she turned eight months old, all I thought was introducing cheese as part of her intake.

I knew cheese goes very well with broccoli, so why not make a dish out of it for my girl, here the recipe goes.

Cheese is rich in calcium, protein, phosphorous and fat, whereas broccoli is enriched with Vitamin C and dietary fibers. Lets see how to make broccoli cheese soup /mash.

Things required

  1.  Cheese – 1 slice
  2. Broccoli – 5 florets
  3. Water –  half a cup

Preparation

  • Wash the broccoli florets well
  • Steam the florets with water or upto one whistle in pressure cooker
  • When cooled , purée the steamed broccoli with Cheese
  • Add water to adjust the mash consistency and yummy broccoli cheese soup or mash is ready

Note: Check for gas / allergy reactions when you first introduce this to your baby

I used Britannia cheese along with broccoli for my baby.

My baby loves this and I hope your baby loves it too.

  1. Hi. Really mice n helpful blog. Love reading ur articles. Very informative.
    Just a small doubt abt the above recipe cheese n broccoli soup. As v knw cheese is for calcium wheras broccoli has high content of iron. Calcium hampers the absorption of iron.

    • Hi Shama ,

      We need not melt cheese before grinding.. It blends it with teh broccoli as it is steamed .. Blend well until cheese gels with teh entire mixture ..
