What are some yummy recipes with vegetables that kids will eat?

I'm 14 and a super pickey eater. my parents kinda gave up on finding a healthy food with vegetables in it that i like so i am just forced to eat them. they said if I can find something with veggies in it that i like, they will cook it for me. any good ideas?

Just try out different veggies. Which ever ones you like, just add chicken. Stir fry.

Dear ThatOneGirl,

Good for your folks that they push the veggies while you are young...also for you, that you seem to be really trying!

Since you are fourteen, your tastes will be maturing soon; so here is my idea. And since your folks are so supportive, why don't you see about making this vegetable project an adventure in international cuisine?

(I won't try to give recipes here, because these dishes are all famous and you can google them if needed.)

RATATOUILLE is a traditional French Provençal stewed vegetable dish, originating in Nice. The full name of the dish is ratatouille niçoise.

FRITTATA is an egg-based Italian dish, similar to quiche but no crust...enriched by various veggies of choice.

And the STIR-FRY that Kali_Girl mentions...tender-crisp veggies seasoned with an exquisite tamari (like soy sauce but better), and I prefer the extra flavor of tender fluffy brown rice.

YUM!!!

Hi Sincerity, yes I agree...should be an essential food group all its own...

Try adding steamed broccoli to your mac-n-cheese. You can cut it into about 1" pieces, then steam is in the microwave, and stir it into the mac-n-cheese.

Steam cauliflower for just a bit so that it is still a bit hard,then grill it in the frying pan with a little bit of butter until it has golden edges.

Cut zucchini in half lengthwise, scoop out the portion with the seeds (they can be watery and make it mushy) so it looks like a little boat, then sprinkle it with a little bit of seasoning or cheese (Parmesan is nice), and bake it till it is tender.

Hubster will not eat zucchini anywhere, but when I make he eats it no problem.
We love broccoli & cauliflower. Just steamed....they both taste so fresh and clean and wonderful.

Oh...TOG...if you do get here, consider the combination of steamed broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. Just so beautiful.

...I do not care for carrots......although I make a mean carrot salad that I love! It is the only way I eat carrots.

Shred the carrots (I use a salad-shooter and a 2-pound bag of baby carrots already peeled to do this), 1 8-oz can of crushed pineapple, chopped pecans or walnuts (I use about 1 cup but you can adjust), 1 cup golden raisins, and mayo. Mix it all up then add one cap-ful of apple cider vinegar, stir and taste. If it is not tangy enough, add one more cap of vinegar. Keep doing that until you are happy with the taste. You can eat it right away, but it taste better the longer it sits in the fridge and the flavors meld.

Mmmmm-I am making that !

THAT might be a wonderful avenue for T-O-G to explore...

And I am going to copy it and put it right alongside of the cranberry relish! Actually Yosey, once I made the cranberry relish with pineapple tidbits instead of crushed pineapple, and people were enjoying it like a salad! So I might experiment with expanding that someday...grape halves or something...SO good!

I love experimenting!

One lesson I learned in my experiments though that I MUST pass onto you....lavender -- it can make a really interesting and tasty spice addition to poultry (mixed with lemon and garlic)......but ONLY a tiny tiny tiny bit. I put too much on a turkey and we had to throw it away.

You mean the lavender that is in sachets? I used to grow that!

I have heard of it used in cooking, but never experimented. Did you grow it? Or, where is it available for culinary purposes?

I bought it at a Cost Plus World Market in the spice section. It is the dried blooms/petals -- so it is purple. If you use too much, you get the odor and taste that reminds you of soap.......turkey soap was pretty gross.
