I'm the only veg in the house, but I'm trying to get everyone to eat less meat and dairy so this is a GREAT thread.
My two year old would happily live off garlic hummus for the rest of his life - adores the stuff. He also really digs veggie burgers - I'm thinking he's an easy convert
I make a big batch of burritos every few weeks and freeze them individually, the whole family loves them (I have a 16 year old, a 12 year old, a 4 year old and a 20 month old plus DH). I use veg refried beans, black beans, corn, rice and salsa. Yummmmm.
My ds (4) will almost always eat brown rice, black beans and cheddar cheese if it's in a wrap. Put it in a bowl and it's not as likely to get eaten. Hummus, french toast, cheese pizza and pasta are also favorites. He has an aversion to sauces so whatever we're making I try to just pull his out before adding any kind of sauce.
DD (18 months) eats so little I can't even put anything down. Wait...she does eat peas
Vegan mac and cheese...or as my 2 yo calls it "vn noo noos"
I just cook whole grain pasta and when they're sone and drained I add earth balance, soy milk, braggs, nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder and pepper. I need to remember to measure out the ingredients so I can share the recipe.
Denali has always been a huge fan of beans. They have been her favorite food from age one on. Our favorite way to prepare them is simple: beans soaked overnight and cooked in fresh water with a chopped onion, several cloves ofgarlic, a couple bay leaves, and some aromatic fresh herbs tied together. then I add salt most of the way through the cooking process. i serve them warm in their broth with a light drizzle of olive oil. We use crusty whole wheat bread to soak up the broth. Delicious! We eat it weekly, and it never gets dull for us.
