Tips for Picky Eaters! - Food processors unite against veggies!


Ok, so this is how I felt about vegetables as a child... and to this day ----------->

So you don't like eating soups, pasta sauces, etc..., yet still feel the need to ingest vegetables too?
If it is the texture you detest, try investing in a food processor or utilizing your blender to break down some of the textures.
Give the vegetables hell in a food processor, and then you only have to deal with the taste!

If you are making your own dish and a recipe calls for chopped tomato, onion, garlic etc. and the thought of eating such things is just too much, simply blend them into oblivion.

It is also possible to make your own soups this way.  In fact, some soup staples are already made by blending away bits (and sometimes dehydrating and fun chemical processes), for example:
Cream of tomato soup
Cream of mushroom soup

As a tourist, I once stayed at a monastery and was fed cream of potato and broccoli soup.  The broccoli sent up alarm bells in my ears while fears of choking down dinner in front of a sweet elderly monk filled my head.  However, when I actually tasted the soup, it was completely blended to my liking.
Thanks to Brother Steven, I learned that potato makes an excellent thickening soup based!  Simply add potatoes and other offending vegetables to your food processor.  Then add some vegetable or chicken stock to make a very mushy, but very healthy soup.  Might I suggest dipping bread?  Yum!
