Hiding Veggies

I hide veggies sometimes. I add black beans(drained and rinsed) to our taco meat and sometimes carrots to our spagetti sauce (steam first). I run them trought the food processor. Do you add veggies? What are some other combos where veggies will go unnoticed. My dd eats veggies with her meal, but I want ways to sneak in a few extras into main dishes. I know there is a book about this but want some ideas people have tried.

  • i add veggies to almost everything! i shred most of it. last night i made meatloaf with squash, zuchinni, carrots, cabbage (green and purple), onion, and garlic. it was more than half veggies and everybody loved it.

  • I finely shredd carrots and add them to chili and pasta sauce, and also meatloaf. Also, when making "milkshakes" I make them with lots of fresh fruit.

  • pureed cauliflower in mac and cheese is a hit. onion in taco meat, carrots& peppers in meatloaf. berries & other fruit in smoothies. anything can be pureed and hidden.
