What vegetable should I torture my kids with tonight?

I am so sick of green beans! Its the only thing they all like, and it's my least favorite vegetable. I make it for them with Italian dressing at least 2x a week. I refuse to make them this week. Last night we had peas. Any creative, kid-friendly ideas? I don't like mixing so they don't know. I think they should be used to occasionally eating stuff they don't like much. What should I make tonight?

  • If you bake butternut squash with a little brown sugar and cinnamon, I'll bet they will love it!

  • How about glazed carrots, if you don't mind a little sugar with your veggies?
