My sister-in-law and I talked about his food habits, and she expressed concern. That's when I told her that I add grated carrot into our spaghetti sauce. She works a very demanding job and only sees nephew for an hour a day. So I offered to help. I'm trying to come up with ways to sneak nutrients into his food. I know there are cookbooks out there for this express purpose, but this is what I've decided to try so far:
- Zucchini doughnuts
- Veggie-spiked spaghetti sauce
- Veggie-spiked "nephew approved" soups (bean purees in tomato soup)
- Sweet potato pancakes
For the first experiment, I decided to make something he couldn't say no to: double chocolate zucchini muffins. I found them at For the Love of Cooking. I was skeptical at first, but they are AMAZING.
