3 Scrumptious Ways to Trick Yourself (or Your Kids) into Liking Veggies

3 Scrumptious Ways to Trick Yourself (or Your Kids) into Liking Veggies

If you’re not in the habit of eating fresh produce, sometimes it requires time (and side ingredients) in order to acquire a taste.

Or maybe you just don’t feel like steaming broccoli florets or making a salad. Here are a few relish-able “treats” that provide nourishment and great taste.

1. Sweet Potato Fries:

Peel and cut two large potatoes, slicing to desired thickness. Rub with EVOO, sea salt, garlic powder, and/or fresh herbs. Bake on a sheet pan in a 450-degree oven for 30 minutes, turning the fries over halfway through.

2. Hummus:

In a food processor, mix a pound of garbanzo beans, ¼ cup EVOO, fresh lemon juice, crushed garlic, and ½ teaspoon paprika. (Feeling adventurous? Add in some roasted red pepper or sun dried tomatoes.)

3. Zucchini Pasta:

Using a veggie peeler, slice zucchini into spaghetti-resembling strips. Boil. Strain, and toss in marinara or pesto. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and buon apetito!
