Hiding vegetables seems to be a go-to for most parents of non-vegetable eaters. I have to say upfront that it's not my favourite tactic, even though it is one that I use. I don't hide vegetables because my family won't eat them, I do it to add a bit of flavour and extra nutrition to most dishes I cook.
That said, I understand why parents resort to hiding vegetables.
I keep jars of "green sauce" in my freezer at all times for meals that need a few extra vegetables. I take whatever I have (usually spinach, kale, broccoli, tomatoes, carrot, onion and garlic) roughly chop it and and put it in the power blender until it is smooth.
The obvious two ways of hiding vegetables are in mince and meatballs. Vegetables like carrot and zucchini lend themselves well to this when finely grated or pureed. However, with a little creativity you can come up with some great combinations.
A few of our favourites are:
If all else fails, add cheese! That always works in our house.
