Last month I posted about freezer cooking and wanted to share what I did this month. I started puree-ing and freezing the puree to include in dishes. Basically, I need to sneak some more veggies into my kids meals because they only eat certain vegetables. What got me into this was the cookbook Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food. I have this cookbook and I got her second one from the library, I really like the recipes so I do recommend her books.
Yesterday I pureed:
- yellow squash
- For the squash I took 3 squash and microwaved them for about 6 minutes then cut them into cubes before processing.
- For the spinach I microwaved a cup of spinach for about 1 minute.
- For the cauliflower I microwaved them for 6 minutes.
- For the carrots I microwaved them for about 5 minutes (I used baby carrots).
Do you do this with your kids? What are your favorite recipes?
