Recipe Recommendations for Picky Eater
undefined posted:

My wife is a particularly picky eater when it comes to vegetables, and we find ourselves making the same meals over and over again. This not only becomes repetitive and boring, but I don't feel like I'm getting my full nutritional value due to leaving out the vegetables at dinner time.

I was wondering if anyone had any recipe recommendations that go beyond "add a salad to your meal" that possibly include vegetables and masks taste / texture, or something we can get our full daily nutritional value out of while still tasting good for a picky eater.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Try roasting them. Cut up any kind of veggie into bite sized pieces, toss with a little extra virgin olive oil, whatever herbs you like, salt, pepper and garlic. Place them on a cookie sheet in a 400 degree oven and check them after about twenty minutes. Pretty much anything works, squash, sweet potatoes, asparagus, corn, fennel, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower. I once roasted broccoli, carrots, cauliflower together with some basalmic vinegar, rosemary, salt, pepper and garlic and it was SO good. For some reason roasting makes the veggies sweeter tasting.

Good luck!
