Have a look at this website I- m sure you- ll find it inspiring. kind regards Ana http://www.asturiascheese.com/spanish-cheese
I agree with most. If a child is taught to eat the veggies from a young age and don't give in to them...just cause they hear their friends say they hate veggies they will eat them. The norm. seems to be onions and mushrooms for most kids.... but if you teach a child to be a picky eater they will be. I make make spinach carrot squash add bacon bits and cheese to mashed potatoes frequently for a change. I've gotten more into eating yams now...for the health benefit. Always use lots of color when serving your meals. I had to laugh too when I read about cutting the potatoes when it just talked about not doing so. Go figure. Muis-Canada
Anyone notice the irony of this recipe? Notice it says to cube the potato. Yet the page that linked this recipe stated not to cut up your potato when boiling as it cuts back on the nutrients available. Sorry just thought that was funny. AL Bellingham WA
My girls LOVE these things. No hiding necessary. The bit of mustard tip would give it a nice little kick. Try the same thing but with couscous instead of potatoes for another variation. Kristen Woodstock CT
Mash potatoes are high on the glycemic index. With broccoli & cheese the GI may drop to 70. Still that's too high. It seems this dish will make you fat. Can you use sweet potatoes or yams instead? Both of these other root vegetables have a lower GI value. Arnie San Diego CA
I would substitute cauliflower in order to 'hide' the veggies. Also adding a bit of dry mustard and a couple of drops of Worchestershire sauce and 1/4 cup of low fat cheddar would give it more of a cheesy baked potato feel. You have to hide veggies not make them obvious!! J.Smith Whittier CA
I used to cater to my kids tastes but then realized it got me no where. I've been adding more and more veggies to dishes and while they turn their nose as I'm prepping the food they always love what I make. They'd eat Ramen all day if I let them so I found a recipe where I could incorporate a ton of veggies into it and they LOVE it!!
I cant wait to make this later this week when my husb come in from work trip we both love broccoli and potaoes so this really looks awesome it will be on our menu alot!! and can get my grandson to eat this for sure!!
This recipe was good the fontina a great choice to meld the broccoli and potatoes. My 2 1/2 year old really liked it as did my husband. They both like veggies so this wasn't an issue of "hiding " but of finding new ways to enjoy standards at our house. I served this dish with roasted pork tenderloin & a salad... the whole meal took less than 30 minutes and timed out perfectly.
