Broccoli Pesto Sauce

Your little eater will love this recipe! This Broccoli Pesto Sauce is a super quick and delicious way to offer broccoli and other nutritional ingredients like sunflower seeds and olive oil! For little eaters who are just being introduced to pasta (6-8 months), we suggest using mini flower pasta. For more experienced eaters (8-12 months), you can pick something your littles are more comfortable with such as spaghettini or bowtie pasta!

What you’ll need:
  • 1 cup of broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • Lemon juice to taste
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  1. Add all of the above to your Baby Brezza 1-Step Food Maker Deluxe and press "Steam" for 20 minutes.
  2. While the sauce is being steamed, cook your choice of pasta.
  3. Then, press "Blend" on your food maker for 1-2 minutes or until the pesto sauce has reached a smooth consistency. Make sure the sunflower seeds are thoroughly blended!
  4. Mix the sauce with your cooked pasta and add additional olive oil if required. Top with desired garnish such as olive oil, crushed black pepper, or more parmesan!

TIP: You can freeze leftover pesto sauce for a quick dinner in the future.
