Health Tips - Hide the Veggies

Hide the Veggies

When someone in your family isn’t in love with vegetables, but does like a stronger-tasting food like tomato sauce or chili, try this:

  • Warm up your tomato sauce in a sauce pan and keep on a low heat to stay warm.
  • In your Vita-Mix blender, puree raw carrots, celery, and onion, with some extra¬†tomato sauce until it is smooth. You want the quantity of the final pureed vegetable mix to be about 1/3 of the tomato sauce. ¬†For example, 1/3 cup veggies to 1 cup tomato sauce.
  • Turn the heat off the tomato sauce and mix the vegetable puree into the sauce pan. Do not boil the sauce as you will destroy vitamins and the digestive enzymes. Read the health tip on unheated food for more information on not cooking the nutrition out of your food.
  • Serve immediately over fish, turkey, chicken, or pasta.

It’s nutritious and delicious.
