Pasta with creamy broccoli sauce/ soup

The lil' fella had been refusing to eat his broccoli lately! To avoid him wasting the remaining broccoli I have in the fridge, I decided to turn them into pasta sauce. Any kid that refuses vege wouldn't know this super creamy and yummy pasta sauce has veg in it.

Ingredients (this makes about 3 baby's meal portion)
  • 1 stalk of broccoli, cleaned and cut into florets
  • 2 small size potato, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1 cup of water or vegetable stock or 1/2 water 1/2 milk
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 onion, minced
  • 1tbsp butter

In a pot of boiling water, cook cubed potato and cut broccoli till soft (about 5min). Drain off and set aside.

Heat up a soup pot, or fry pan. Add in the butter. When it starts to sizzle, stir in the minced garlic and onion. When the garlic and onion are brown and fragrant, add in boiled potato and broccoli. Saute for another 1-2 minute.

Add in water/ stock. Simmer for another 5 minutes.

Bring the mix to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth.

Serve with cooked pasta or serve as soup.

  1. Such a healthy and delicious pasta meal for the little one!
    Thanks for linking to LTU!

    1. Hi Jozelyn, it's only deemed 'delicious' by the little one. To any adult, it may be quite bland. But oh well, it's all about the nutrition at this phase. So long the little one loves it. :D Thanks for dropping by.

  2. Hi Jennifer,may I know can I freeze this sauce for nx use? I replace potato to pumpkin as potato out of stock at home.
