Hiding vegetables in the pasta isn’t just for kids anymore! I do it myself! When I eat any kind of pasta, the flavors I enjoy the most come from the wonderful sauces – not the pasta. So why not enjoy the same taste over something much healthier? Here I have steamed broccoli to which I added a “homemade” meat sauce I made using store-bought plain spaghetti sauce, browned lean ground beef, and 1/4 cup pureed roasted garlic. Delicious! With my “vasta” (vegetable pasta) I had a small yeast roll and some steamed baby carrots. Around 600 calories all together.

Want tips on how to hide vegetables in your own food? Pureed or finely chopped vegetables can easily be hidden in food. You can use fresh, frozen or even canned vegetables to make your mixtures. You can puree the vegetables, cook and smash them, grate them, steam them, or finely chop them. Here is a great link with tips on how to successfully hide veggies in your food:

About notyouraveragefoodie

Not your average foodie, indeed. I have a Masters Degree in Dietetics and am currently employed as a Registered Dietitian at a nationally renown clinic. I created this blog to entertain and inform foodies everywhere. I am a busy, working woman battling the same food issues most people struggle with every day. Possessing the knowledge about food is the easy part. Putting it into practice... that’s where it gets tricky. I consider myself obsessed with food –– how it looks, how it smells, how it tastes, even how it makes me feel. My hope is to provide recipes, tips & tricks each day, to help foodies everywhere eat like a dietitian. I will be sharing my tips & tricks in the kitchen, providing delicious recipes, and helping foodies everywhere navigate through the supermarket, eating out, preparing foods at home, and surviving tricky eating situations whenever they arise.
