Hello, Sweet Friends!
Today, I'd like to show you something that I love to do with my garden's fresh veggies (or any veggies on sale that I can fine - and, yes, my garden is still producing!). I like to chop them all up together (without the flowers)....carrot, onion, zuchs, yellow squash and tomatoes, add garlic and salt and...
I sautee them and then I puree them. I then use the pureed veggies in homemade spaghetti sauce, taco filling, stews and soups, meatloaf, all kinds of yummy recipes. I love to freeze this pureed combination, too, for later use. My children aren't the wiser (they HATE zuchini by itself) and they get extra veggies.
I know that the wife of Jerry Seinfeld has a book out about puree-ing veggies and adding them to brownies and cakes and all sorts of things. I'm not that brave. But, hey, in regular foods it works just fine.
Note: Do not add sauteed greens, such as kale or spinach, to spaghetti or taco sauces, it turns them dark and wierd looking.
