Whether you’re a picky eater or just hate eating salads, there’s one thing you need to remember when it comes to cooking- veggies don’t always have to be boring.
In fact, there are a ton of ways you can sneak them into your meals or side dishes and actually enjoy them too!
Sounds interesting? Read on to discover 7 creative ways to spice up those boring and bland veggies on your plate that you detest so much.
Serve it With a Dip
Don’t like eating veggies the regular way? Chop ‘em up into sticks and serve them with a nice dip. Look up different healthy dip recipes you could try using veggies and give them a try!
Make them into a sauce
If you’re making a sauce at home (for instance, pizza sauce or pasta sauce), you can consider adding more veggies to it as well.
Using something like an instant pot to make vegetables into a well-cooked sauce could be a great idea.
Veggie noodles are another excellent way to sneak in more veggies into your diet. They’re also an excellent option if you’re following a low carb diet.
Consider investing in a spiralizer to make it happen or simply shred or slice them up- it’ll take a bit of extra time sure, but in the end, it is totally worth it if you gobble it down right?
Sneak ‘em Into your Curries
If you’re one of those who don’t like the taste of veggies, adding them into your curries and stews can be a great idea. That’s simply because both of these are flavourful meals, which will make it easier for you to tolerate the taste of the veggies.
The spices will effectively mask the taste of veggies, and you’ll find yourself actually enjoying the veggies in there. You eat veggies in your takeaway I am sure?
Okay, you probably guessed this one coming! One of the easiest ways to get more veggies into your meals is to add them to your sandwiches and toasties.
Peppers, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, beetroot are all excellent picks that taste great in sandwiches.
Turn ‘em Into Chips
If you haven’t tried veggie chips yet, you’re seriously missing out on an excellent healthy snack option.
Batch make them yourself by spending an hour in the kitchen or just grab them from a local speciality store. You won’t believe how delicious they actually taste- sweet potatoes and butternut squash are my favourites but others you could try are beetroot, kale, brussels sprouts, okra and carrots.
Whether it is BBQ season or not, kebabs are an absolute hit all the time, and sneaking veggies into your homemade kebabs can be another superb idea to try out.
Veggies like peppers, onions, mushrooms, courgettes and tomatoes work best for kebabs. Add them to your meat mixture or skewer them with chunks of meat and they’ll really bring out the flavour factor!
