If you are like me you have a hard time getting your kids to eat your veggies. I found a solution. While all the recipes have not been tried, some of them I can't even bring myself to fix yet, but I am working up the nerve. LOL This cookbook goes into everything from prep to recipes. The kitchen cabinet members are all members of the Seinfeld family.Yes, as in Jerry Seinfeld. His wife, Jessica, wrote the book! Which had me leery to be it at first, but I am glad I went ahead and bought it.
The concept of ths book is to teach you how to hide veggies in the food. How you may ask. By pureeing veggies like cauliflower, butternut squash, zucchini, and yellow squash. When you have these pureed you hide them in the ingredients of a recipe. One of my favorites is:
Aloha Chicken Kebabs:
1 cup whole-wheat bread crumbs
1/4 cup flaxseed meal
1/2 cup sweet potatoe puree
1/4 cup pineapple puree
1 TBSP soy-sauce
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast or tenders, rinsed and dried, cut into fingers
1/4 tsp salt
2 TBSP AP flour
nonstick cooking spary
1TBSP olive oil
Mix breadcrumbs and flax tgether.
In second bowl combine sweet potatoe, pineapple, soy sauce, egg white, coconut.
Thread fingers on skewers. Sprinkle both sides of chick with salt and flour, dip in egg white, roll in breadcrumbs until completely coated.
Coat a large nonstick pan with spray and set over med-high heat. When pan is hot add oil.
Add chick in a single layer and brown for 3-4 min per side. Until the chick is golden and crispy, turn, repeat on other side.
