We’re trying to add more vegetables to our meals. Vegetable cooking times are tough to do. I’ve steamed broccoli to mush and boiled potatoes to starch. It happens.
Thanks to the kitchen company Lark & Larks, there’s a vegetable cooking guide to help us boil, steam and roast the perfect vegetables every time!
From asparagus to the humble potato – they looked at how long it takes to cook veggies until they are *just* right, and made a cut-out-and-keep guide for reference.
Of course, there are other ways to cook vegetables.
Take for example this stuffed meatloaf recipe I make. It’s delicious. It’s the meatloaf Jake requests. It’s also filled with vegetables I have a hard time getting my kids to eat when the vegetables are a solo act accompanying an entree.
I also sometimes sneak vegetables into sweets, like these deceptive brownies, which were a final in the Veggie Patch baking contest where moms everywhere shared how they were getting their kiddos to eat vegetables!
Of course, there are also dishes where vegetables are stars in their own right. Take for example, this marmalade carrot recipe. It is delicious and one of our favorites for glamming up the ordinary.
We are also found of Brussel Sprouts Umami. They give a great twist on one of my kiddos least favorite vegetables.
