There’s WHAT in my muffins? Pairing vegetables and comfort food is a new concept to many of us. Conversations about vegetables in our mac and cheese and even pureed in our muffins may make many of us cringe but, what if I told you it CAN be delicious?! We so often focus on kids who don’t eat vegetables, but what about adults and teens who could use some help with this too? Gone are the days of simply boiling or steaming vegetables, vegetables now make the most delicious main dishes AND secret ingredients in our favorite comfort foods.
As a kid and teenager who ate a very simple diet, Nikki Dinki found herself avoiding fruits and vegetables most of her life, until she moved to New York as an adult. Her journey to learning to love vegetables started her on a unique culinary adventure that uses them in innovative and decadent ways that can enhance all of our meal prep! Through this conversation with our new Gather friend, you will hear more about:
What it’s like as an adult learning to love vegetables
When you find what vegetables you like, how to eat them in new and creative ways
How to get more veggies when eating your favorite comfort foods
& so much more!
