I don't think I'm a particularly picky eater, but I guess I am not really a vegetable person. At least my list of dislikes is probably longer than my list of likes. I do however do fairly well at eating and cooking healthily (despite my penchant for treats!) I don't buy anything processed (or process anything bought or sold or sell anything processed or boughten... in the words of John Cusack). I buy mostly fresh foods and do all my own prep.
Since Maddie is such a good eater, I try to imagine her a little older and having her parents be more picky than she is. And with this in mind, I'm forcing myself to branch out.
Last night, Rob and I had our meatloaf and green beans with a side of mashed cauliflower. Which does in fact taste just like mashed potatoes. I steamed my cauliflower, pureed it with a bit of sour cream and parmesan cheese and voila -- "mashed potatoes." The only off thing was the texture (and my brain which kept screaming, "you're eating cauliflower!") The texture was a little too creamy, but perhaps that's just a result of oversteaming my veggies.
Next up... Kale Chips. I love a good oven roasted veggie, so why not?
