Vegetable dishes aren’t very exciting, especially when it comes to kids. Adults—we’re all guilty of pushing away our veggies or “forgetting” to make them with dinner, so start putting them in the dinner instead. These recipes will knock your socks off as they incorporate vegetables into some of the most delicious dishes you’ve ever had.
This dish is a little more straightforward and right to the point: vegetables can be amazingly delicious, so they should be the star of the dish. Apart from making veggies the star attraction here, this dish is inexpensive and rather quick to make. If you’re trying to make dinners healthy, but you’re also strapped for time (aren’t we all?) giving this a shot will be a surefire way to please the table, and feel good about what you’re serving up.
When it’s done right, spinach can be one of the most delicious vegetables to include in any dish. If you’re looking to sneak in a healthy bit here and a touch of deliciousness there, super-packed and ultra good-for-you spinach is certainly the way to go. You can barely taste the greens through the onions and creamy mashed potato flavor, making this a table staple from this moment onward (we bet).
This is a dish that’s become quite popular in recent years, and for good reason—it’s got crunch, it’s got munch, and it’s certainly filling without over spilling your budget. One pro tip to get the most out of this dish is to only use fresh green beans—nothing canned or frozen. Not only do fresh green beans keep more of their nutrients when they cook, but it keeps a great texture to the dish that’s sure to have your children asking for it again in the near future.
When it’s homemade, this dish can be extremely healthy. Getting the consistency down pat can take a few passes at this recipe; it’s rare to see a child who doesn’t want this for dinner again. Pair it with some homemade multigrain croutons for added texture, and you’ve got a dish you can feel good about serving (and eating, too).
Better Health, Better You
We should all try to incorporate more veggies into our dishes when we can. The key is to make the vegetables the star, while including enough other ingredients that your kids (and your spouse) won’t think twice about digging in.
And this applies to our catering offerings also. We only use the freshest vegetables in our soups, salads, and sides and we make them look amazing. Check out our soup and salad catering menu.
