Let’s Make Some Cauliflower Hash Browns!
Cauliflower has got to be one of my personal favorite foods but getting Bennett to eat it has been a bit of a challenge. I don’t blame him, it’s a different type of texture and not a ton of taste on it’s own he doesn’t exactly enjoy when it’s on his plate. That got me thinking about recipes where I could incorporate Cauliflower in a way that would taste good and stilll be Baby Led Weaning friendly. These Cauliflower Hash Browns are incredibly easy with only a handful of ingredients and they are super soft and easy to chew. They are completely dairy-free as is but would be great with a quarter cup of shredded cheese added in too.
Cauliflower is an incredibly healthy vegetable with lots of health benefits for adults, kids and babies alike! They are packed with vitamins, specifically Calcium which is extremely beneficial for our growing babies and their bone health. Cauliflower is high in Fiber and Antioxidants. There is also something called Sulforaphane in Cauliflower which helps to improve the function of the heart and the kidney.
Half a Head of Cauliflower
One Tablespoon of Cornstarch
1/4 Cup of Green Onion
1/4 Cup of Flour
Optional: 1/4 Cup of Shredded Cheese
How to Make Them:
Let’s start this off by chopping up our Cauliflower into bite sized pieces, then we want to let that steam for about five minutes.
While that is steaming we can cut up our Green Onion. Adding the Green Onion and the steamed Cauliflower into a food processor we can let that blend until there are no large chunks. (If you are adding in cheese it would be best to add it to the food proeccesor as well)
Now we will just add this mixture into a bowl and we can add in the remainder of our ingredients and mix everything together. Because there is not much flavor in Cauliflower I am pretty generous with the Garlic Powder and Paprika in this recipe.
Once mixed let’s get these into the oven at 365 for 15 minutes flipping them over halfway through. Let cool and they are all done!
Hope your little one likes them!
