Vegetables can be blended and added to many flavorful dishes and desserts. Why add vegetables:

  • To use up raw vegetables in your refrigerator.
  • To add vegetables when you or your child doesn’t eat them otherwise.
  • To add color to your meal.
  • To eat more vegetables.

Spaghetti sauce is so flavorful, most vegetables can be blended into the sauce. Favorite spaghetti sauce additions.
