1. Roast them. Roasted veggies are sweeter and taste ahhmazing.
2. Cut them up into cute shapes. Cookie cutters work best for this.
3. Have a dip to go with them.
4. Keep at it. Sometimes kids have to taste and see a different veggie a few times before they are ready to eat it-that can be true for adults too. Try preparing them in different ways. Don’t give up!
5. If all else fails pray!
I thought for Valentines it would be fun to have some roasted veggies cut up into cute heart shapes. Here is how I did it.
1. I took potatoes, red, and golden beets and washed them.
2. I then cut them in slices.
3. Next I took a cookie cutter-use a metal one-and cut out heart shapes.
4. I then put them on a cookie sheet and drizzeled them with olive oil and sprinkled salt on them.
5. Roast them at 425 in a preheated oven. I roasted them for 20 minutes on one side, and then flipped them and roasted them for about 10 minutes more on the other side. The times could change depending on how thick you cut them. Just set your timer for 15 minutes and watch them. If they are thicker set it for 20.
6.Done! Seriously easy. I bet you could even enlist your kids to stamp out the veggie hearts. Oh and remember tip number 3 to include a dip-try this one with the roasted beets it is SO good with them. If I did it again I would probably add sweet potatoes to the mix.
