These Cauliflower cheese bites are made from just 5 ingredients and freeze beautifully. I first made them when Mini Jones was 7 months and had decided he didn’t like purees any more, but wasn’t ready for anything with much texture. Since then, I have made them chunkier each time.

Cauliflower Cheese Bites

Yield: 16

Category: Baby Led Weaning, Plant Based | Vegetarian, Toddler


250g cauliflower, cooked

1 egg

60g cooked quinoa

150g ricotta

25g  grated cheese

Preheat oven to 180˚C/ 350˚F


To make the bites for younger babies: Put all the ingredients in a blender/food processor and blend until you have a smooth puree. If your baby is ready for a little texture, stop when you have a rough puree.

For older babies/toddlers: mash the cauliflower slightly and chop any stalk into small pieces, then mix with the remaining ingredients.

Put dessertspoonfuls of the mixture onto a tray lined with baking paper.

Put in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, turning the bites after 10 minutes, until lightly golden and cooked through.

Store in the fridge for 1-2 days or freeze for 1-2 months.
