There are plenty of ways to slip a few extra vegetables into your meals without changing the flavor and putting off picky eaters. Here are a few ideas:

You can tuck spinach or broccoli into creamy dishes like stuffed shells or macaroni and cheese or incorporate mild vegetables into a beloved dish where they'll be dominated by other flavors.

More Recipes to Try:

Finely shred or grate veggies like carrots or zucchini into meatloaf, pasta dishes or spaghetti sauce to add both nutrients and flavor to meals.

Recipes to Try:

Make already lycopene-rich tomato sauce even healthier by stirring in canned unseasoned pumpkin puree. The pumpkin puree adds fiber and beta carotene, but has a mild flavor and creamy texture-so no one will be the wiser. Then pile it on pasta, pizza or casseroles for an extra dose of nutrients.
