First, get your broccoli going. Steam your broccoli florets using a steamer basket over a pot with a small amount of water. It should take 8-10 minutes to get them nice and tender. Then puree, cool slightly and serve.
Meanwhile, add the zucchini and yellow squash to a steamer basket in a pot with a little bit of water – about 5-7 minutes — and then puree. You can also do them in a large pan with a bit of water so you can steam the broccoli while you cook these at the same time.
Puree the black beans with a little bit of water until they reach a smooth, spoon-able consistency.
Choose the highest-fat Greek yogurt you can find (I always used a 10% fat Cabot Greek yogurt), then open the container and serve!
The zucchini and squash purees will be watery. They are great to mix with brown rice, oatmeal, quinoa, couscous or another starchy grain that your baby has had.
The method for black beans would work with most any other canned bean as well.
Here’s my post on making fruit and veggie mix-ins for yogurt to flavor up the plain stuff once they’re a bit older.
