Do you have a child (or spouse) that doesn’t enjoy eating too many veggies? Or maybe even yourself? Let’s get creative! There are many ways of adding vegetables to your meals in a way that tastes delicious. Whether it’s savory or dessert, let’s explore what you can do with vegetables.
One of the easiest ways to incorporate vegetables in a way that almost goes unnoticed is by pureeing them. Boil veggies like carrots, celery, tomato (lots of it), zucchini, and onion until they are soft, and blend them together to make a sauce for your favorite pasta or noodles.

Adding tiny pieces of vegetables to your meals is another great way to add more vegetables to your meal. Although they are still noticeable, blending them in your favorite protein for patties, for example, can make them taste super delicious!
