Dinner Tonight, Lunch Tomorrow: Zucchini Recipes
March 26, 2013
Getting kids to eat their vegetables is a time-tested trial-by-fire for parents, so we tapped Missy Chase Lapine, aka The Sneaky Chef, to show us how to hide veggies in some of kids' favorite foods. This BBQ pulled chicken recipe is ridiculously easy and makes great leftover sandwiches for a couple of days afterward. Your little ones will never know the nutrition factor is amped up with oat bran and shredded zucchini.
Since you've got the grater our anyway, shred a few extra zucchini for these sweet, simple muffins you can put in your kids lunch box. They'll think they're having dessert, but they're really getting all the health benefits and fiber from summer squash. If you think they'll be freaked out by the green flecks, use yellow squash instead to better camouflage the vegetables.
