for an extra round of the ABC song

Broccoli and zucchini are cooked until soft while maintaining all their nutrients and vibrant colors. Even better when it’s so good that your little one has no idea it’s healthy.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Dish

The Medium Deep Dish

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (50g) broccoli, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup (120g) zucchini, diced medium
  • 2 tablespoons water, chicken stock, or vegetable stock
  • salt, to taste

Preparation

  1. Place all the ingredients into the Anyday dish. Cover with lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for 7-8 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender when pierced with a fork.
  3. Using an immersion blender or blender, puree until the mixture is as smooth or chunky as you like. Season to taste.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Add some butter for more flavor and texture. 
  • Feed just as a puree on its own, or mix it with some cooked rice or other grains if you’re starting on chunky foods. 
  • Also great served with chunks of fish, chicken, or turkey.

Recipe notes

  • Freeze the porridge in the Anytime Freezer Trays and freeze for up to 1 month. Reheat as needed.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
