Hot Pink Beet-Cauliflower Puree, Vegan & Gluten-Free

I’m so excited today to share one of the most vibrantly colored recipes I’ve ever made!

I’ve noticed that Baby V is especially drawn to bright, colorful foods (runs in the family!), so I was very excited to introduce her to beets last week. I came up with today’s Vegan & Gluten-Free Hot Pink Beet-Cauliflower Puree, as a recipe that features beets and would hopefully appeal to her, as well as Ross and myself.

The results? She loved it! I was actually a little surprised, because it ended up being quite garlicky, but not only did her eyes widen at the vibrant hue, she completely cleaned her plate! I should also mention that Ross and I loved it too, and it’s definitely not a “baby food.”

For Ross and myself, I served the puree as a component in a macro bowl (photo below). The earthy flavor and creamy texture was the perfect addition to a plate full of lentils, sautéed kale, avocado, sauerkraut and cashew cheese sprinkles. I can also see it being great as a mashed potato substitute, alongside a hearty veggie burger or tofu steak.
