We Eat Asparagus

2 May

I am always trying to get the girls to try new vegetables without having to purée them and mix them into smoothies or sauces.  A while back I decided to try asparagus with them.  It is a hard vegetable to get a child to eat because it smells and looks like a tree.  I thought there was no way they would eat it on its own and I was right.  Initially I cut it up into smaller pieces after steaming it and they wouldn’t touch it.  I went back to the kitchen to see what I could mix it into.  I came up with rice and goat cheese (both of my girls are cheese addicts).  As soon as I put it in front of them, the pieces of asparagus the same size as before, it was devoured with nothing left.  Now Maddie will try asparagus alone and will ask for this rice dish for dinner.  It is very easy to make and you can add chicken or fish and serve it all together in a bowl.

Dinner: Tilapia- they ate it all when I added “sprinkles” or colored sea salt and asparagus with rice and goat cheese.
