My kids run when they see a vegetable, so I want to share some of
my “tricks” to get them to eat them. With any tomato sauce ie..
spaghetti, goulash, sloppy joe, pizza I cook frozen pea/carrot mix and
puree them and add them into the sauce as I cook it. I am sure there is
other vegetables that would work with this, such as pumpkin, sqash,
sweet potato. Now for white sauce, I cook and puree zuchini or
cauliflower mixes well with my chicken pot pie, mashed potato,
stroganoff. Sweet potato, squash and pumpkin work well with cheese
sauce. What I look for is vegetables that don’t have a strong flavor,
take on other flavors well and that will puree easily. Most of these
also make great thickeners. If you have any other ideas I would love to
hear them. I have tried to introduce them, still continue, but until
they realize vegetables are not an enemy they will still get them, they
just won’t know it.
