The title speaks for it self.
My toddler does not like vegetables. At. All.
As a vegetable lover, its frustrating because she doesn't know what she is missing.
BUT sometimes. Mom wins the battle and I have a full happy toddler unaware that shes blissfully eaten a bowl full of vegetables.
Enter the Veggie Beef Spaghetti Sauce.
Now you all are probably saying that you've done this before and never worked. But this worked.
Here's how you do it.
Pan fried a pound of ground beef with 1 small minced onion and 2 cloves of fresh garlic and a dash of salt, pepper and soy sauce.
In a pot. Boil 2 medium sweet potatoes peeled/cubed, 2 large carrot peeled/cubed, 1 sweet pepper (red, yellow or orange doesn't matter) and 2 stalks of celery. Cook till soft.
Then blend in your blender will it is a puree adding water as needed.
Once that's done, add 1 can of tomato paste and about a 1/4-1/2 cup of ketchup.
Add cooked meat and simmer over a low-medium heat.
Add some Italian seasoning, more salt/pepper and other spices as desired. (I like to add a bit of everything and some ground ginger).
This freezes well. It tastes yummy. Not strong in the tomato flavor but enough to trick your kiddo into thinking its just the same old sauce.
You can also blend the meat and onion if you have a wee one not ready for chunks of meat.
It was a huge hit at our house today. Enjoy!!
