Easy Vegetable Recipes for Picky Eaters

Vegetable Recipes

Parents are no stranger to the challenges of feeding vegetables to kids. But hey, even if they swear never to eat one leaf in their life, there’s still a thing or two you can do to convince them otherwise! Start with inserting these easy vegetable recipes into the weekly meal plan or baon schedule.

Cream of Mushroom

For some kids, just the sight of greens turns their appetite off. The easy solution? Hide the greens, or keep ‘em to a minimum! Cream of mushroom can be that familiar, unintimidating dish. Usually served as a side to fried dishes, cream of mushroom actually packs the brain-boosting benefits of B Vitamins! Up the health benefits with a few switch-ups in its ingredient list. Sample this Prime vegetable recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 can (425g) Mega Prime Pieces and Stems Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 small white or yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, saute mushrooms, onion and garlic in butter for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low before adding vegetable broth. Cover and allow to simmer for at least 45 minutes.
  3. Stir flour, sour cream and milk into the broth. Allow to simmer and thicken for 20-30 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper before serving.

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Are your kids fans of mashed potatoes? Sneak in a boost of antioxidants and phytonutrients by mixing cauliflower with potatoes! They won’t notice the difference since cauliflower produces the same texture as potatoes when mashed. Yielding 4-6 servings in just 20 minutes, let this vegetable recipe help you.

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into pieces (or 10 oz. cauliflower florets)
  • 2 lbs potatoes, peeled and diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

Directions

  • Combine cauliflower (or cauliflower florets) and diced potatoes in a large, heavy saucepan. Fill with water, up to two inches over the tops of the vegetables.
  • Bring to a boil and cook 10-15 minutes, or until vegetables are soft and tender. Pierce with a fork, to be sure.
  • Drain before returning the vegetables to the saucepan. Add remaining ingredients and mash with a potato masher until mixture reaches the desired consistency.
  • Season with salt and pepper to your liking. Serve warm.

Cassava Chips

Mild-flavored, fibrous and more irresistible when fried! Get your picky eaters to pick Cassava Chips as their tasty, healthy snack for merienda or for family movie night! Here’s how you can easily prepare a batch.

Ingredients

  • 2 cassava roots
  • 1 bowl of water with ice
  • Salt to taste

Directions

  • Slice a half-inch from each end of the cassava root, and peel off its brown bark-like skin from the root. Slice the root into chips or thin rounds.
  • Put the slices into the ice water right away and leave for 45 minutes.
  • Drain the slices on paper towels. Make sure to pat dry to avoid hot oil splatters when frying.
  • Fry the chips in hot oil (370°F) until crisp and lightly brown. Prime mom tip: fry or cook evenly by making sure that the pan or fryer is not so crowded.
  • Place chips on paper towels and let drain. Once dry, sprinkle with salt.
  • Serve immediately or store in sealed plastic bags or airtight container for later.
