2. Mashed Avocado
Use it as an alternative spread for butter or margarine on sandwiches.
3. Blended Spinach
Throw a few handfuls into a fruit smoothie—they won’t even taste it!
4. Sweet Potatoes
Mash together a combination of yellow and sweet potatoes in your next Sheppard’s pie.
5. Camouflaged Cauliflower
Cauliflower picks up the flavor and blends in inconspicuously with pasta sauces.
6. Sweet Carrots
Carrots are naturally sweet so they hide perfectly inside of cookies and muffins while sneaking in extra potassium, fiber, and antioxidants.
7. Pulverized Peppers
The great thing about pureeing foods is that they’re able to hide fairly unnoticeably in jarred goods—such as salsa or spaghetti sauce.
8. Encouraging Eggplant
The texture of a rounded piece of eggplant can be mistaken—in taste and texture—for a rounded piece of pepperoni, especially if hungry kiddies are scarfing down a few slices of pizza!
9. Ground Mushrooms
Do you make a mean meatball? How about grinding some mushrooms into your meat mix to increase the vitamins A and potassium.
10. Wrap Things Up
Wrapping up a sandwich has 2 benefits—first, it keeps things clean and tidy and second, it lets you sneak in things like hummus and thinly sliced veggies without kids even knowing!
