In our house, we’re pretty lucky that every single member of the family is a total vegetable lover. We’ve never really had trouble getting our kids to eat their veggies and we’re very grateful for that indeed! We’re also convinced that part of what’s responsible for the fact is our slight obsession with finding new ways to serve veggies in a manner that makes them even more delicious than they already are. Lately, we’ve been feeling really enthusiastic about vegetable casseroles, so we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for recipes that make sense to serve in the fall.
