Broccoli and Pear Puree

Ingredients:

  • 1 large organic Bartlett pear, washed, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/4 head of organic broccoli, washed and chopped

Directions:

  • Pour water into a medium pot until it is 1” deep and bring to a boil over high heat. Place the broccoli into a steamer basket and put the basket into the pot. The water should not touch the bottom of the basket. Cover with a tight fitting lid and let cook for 7 minutes.
  • Place broccoli and pear into a food processor and blend until a mushy mash consistency is achieved. Mushy mash is a little thicker and lumpier than a smooth stage 1 puree. Just make sure the lumps are soft.
  • Serve or store.

Storage tip! Broccoli & Pear puree will stay fresh in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator and up to 3 months in the freezer.
