Garlic Cauliflower

If I knew how versatile cauliflower was back when I was introducing solids to my oldest, this would have been on my list to train her tastes to when she in the ‘flavour window’ (see introducing solids course for more). From pizza bases to ‘cauliflower rice’ (also known as fairy rice in our house) it is easy to add nutrients to your kids diet with this sweet vegetable. Amongst other nutritional qualities cauliflower is full of folate helping your baby’s Nervous system develop. Paired with the power house immune boosters of garlic, your baby will get a good combo of boost brain and immune power.


  • 1/4 head of cauliflower
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Butter or coconut oil


  • Wash and cut cauliflower into bite-sized pieces
  • Peel the garlic and mince. Use a fine grater if you do not have a garlic mincer.
  • Get out saucepan and melt the oil on high heat. Turn to medium heat and add in garlic and cauliflower.
  • Sautee cauliflower and garlic by constantly moving the cauliflower with a spatular or a large spoon, until cauliflower is a little soft. (You still want the cauliflower to have a crunch to it, if overcook and it will go soggy)
  • Cool and serve. Keep some in the fridge for a on-the-go snack.


To cut down on time - cut a whole cauliflower into bites. Storing the bites in a ziplock bag in the fridge. When your baby is hungry at home, pull some out to cook up. It will take 10 minutes max from fridge to table.
