Vegetables are an important part of your diet whether you like it or not. Not eating vegetables can hinder growth and can cause serious health problems. In today’s modern world we have so many recipes available which are making vegetables tastier to eat.
Even if you like eating a vegetable every day you can’t avoid the delicious taste of junk food. Now the present notion goes that if the food is tasty, then it is unhealthy, we would like to break this myth by giving you the best ways to make your babies eat veggies and also give the healthy junk food you deserve.
- Turn Them into Smoothies
This is the best way to get the full nourishment of all your vegetables and also a better taste. When you make a vegetable smoothie, you get to try tastes of different vegetables all in one.
Choose the vegetables which complement and balance each other to get the best taste. As eating spinach can prove to be a difficult job, you can make a delicious smoothie out of spinach, yogurt, and peanut butter.
- Create a Veggie Dip
Another way to get the best out of the vegetables is by turning it into a dip. By making a dip, you can get the best taste, and you can dip other vegetables to it or your sandwich too.
You can use the dip with anything you want. You can try for a cauliflower dip which has proved to be extremely delicious and evergreen by adding a steamed cauliflower head, lemon juice, salt, garlic, and yogurt.
- Add Cauliflower to Scrambled Eggs
Now, this may seem a little nontraditional but trust us on this. Add your cauliflower into the scrambled eggs for the perfect heavy breakfast and taste. You can mix it by grating it to the top or by making a puree out of it by steaming.
Both of the ways enhance the nutrition in your breakfast and don’t change the flavor of your scrambled eggs at all.
- Add Veggies to Cupcakes
Cakes and cupcakes are something we just can’t avoid. Even if you go on a hard-core diet then too you have to have a small cupcake cheat at some point. You can easily camouflage veggies in the cupcake batter without anyone knowing and get the same taste of the cupcake.
Try to add vegetables that are a little sweet and not salty so that the flavor of the veggies doesn’t stand out and the sweet flavor can be easily mixed with that of the cupcake.
- Sneak Them into Casseroles
Whenever your casserole is ready to serve, get your grater out and grate some veggies into it. The veggies won’t change the texture or the taste of the casserole at all and will give you a high nutritional value of the vegetables without the change in the flavor.
Finally, shredded zucchini and summer squash are the go to partners of a casserole.
- Add It to your Soup
The classic way to add veggies without anyone knowing is to mix it in soup. If you are planning to make your classic chicken soup, then you can add pureed tomatoes, potatoes or squash.
This will not compromise the flavor of your best chicken soup but will add texture and thickness to the soup. You will get high proteins from the veggies and the delicious evergreen taste of your chicken soup without anyone knowing.
By the ways mentioned above you can easily sneak in veggies to your not so healthy items, and you don’t need to compromise on the taste. Children tend to leave out vegetables from their dishes the most and they are the ones who need the vegetables the most for their growth due to their tender age. You will always find a broccoli set aside on a plate.
Even if you are on a strict diet, you can’t refrain from eating your favorite dishes ever. Add veggies to the mix and go green and healthy without sacrificing the flavor.
