Getting Kids to eat Vegetables

In spite of involving my children in all aspects of growing and preparing their food, they balk at vegetables which are not disguised. Which is a bit embarassing as I'm doing all this work teaching and encouraging people to grow and eat their vegetables.

So, I have to be pretty fiendish to get vegetabls into them. And in fairness, anything with Tomato sauce goes down fine, so the blender is my friend.

But this weekend, I came up with a new way to get them eating vegetables - this time beetroot. I used this recipe and it went down a treat! Chocolate beetroot brownies - how could you resist! They were begging for more! Thanks Hugh!

I also served them at my Saturday gardening class, and had a similarly good reaction - along the lines of "they have vegetables in them - they must be healthy - yes please I'll have one more"

I can second Anna's comments about the Chocolate Brownie. Absolutely gorgeous!

I was blown away by Anna's beetroot brownies, so chocolaty! Next year we will be devoting a whole raised bed to beetroot as we are just discovering how versatile they are. We're eating leaves and beets raw in salads daily.
