What a hit! Our baby son couldn’t get enough if this and finished his meal within 10 minutes.  😄

The health benefits of fennel include relief from anemia, indigestion, flatulence, constipation, colic, diarrhea, respiratory disorders, menstrual disorders, and its benefits regarding eye care. Fennel, which has the scientific name Foeniculum Vulgare Miller, or its essence, is widely used around the world in mouth fresheners, toothpastes, desserts, antacids and in various culinary applications.

It originated in the Mediterranean and those cultures have long used it for culinary and medicinal reasons.

I personally like it raw; sliced and dip in olive oil with rock salt and pepper. I first tasted this delicious vegetable in Italy when I was a student and stayed with an Italian host family.

Ingredients:

  • Broccoli
  • Fennel
  • 100ml Breast milk, steamed liquid or pre-boiled water

Method

  1. Cut them in small 2 cm pieces and put both broccoli and fennel into the cook / steamer and steam for 15 minutes.
  2. If you want to use your own breast milk to blend then remove the water from the baby cook and wait until the vegetables have cooled down. Add 50ml to start with then slowly add more to get the consistency you want. Alternatively you can do the same with the liquid in the baby cook or use pre-boiled water.
  3. This is suitable for freezing. Do not freeze if you have used thawn  breastmilk.
