Wholesome Vegetarian Meals For Kids

As parents, it’s not about us and it’s more about the kids especially when it come to vegetarian meals for kids as often kids palate is limited to the types of vegetarian dishes they relish. Preparing meals for kids require a lot of experimentation, something they eat one day with full enthusiasm may not be what they relish on other days. Then weeks later they may demand the same dish again. Their food habits are formed and influenced by what they may have heard or seen from their peers.

Creamy vegetable bake is an essential weekly recipe in vegetarian meals for kids in my household. It’s nutritious and great as any meal of the day for everyone.

Peel 1 pound carrots (about 8 carrots); quarter lengthwise and cut in 2-inch pieces. In 2-quart glass bowl or casserole combine carrots; 2 cups frozen Southern-style hashed brown potatoes (8 ounces); ¾ cup sliced celery; ½ cup chopped onion; one 3-ounce can sliced mushrooms, drained; ¼ cup water; and ½ teaspoon salt. Micro-cook, covered, till tender, about 18 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Do not drain. Sprinkle 1 envelope white sauce mix (enough for 1 cup sauce) over vegetables; blend gently. Gradually stir in 2 cups milk. Cook, covered till thickened and bubbly, about 5 minutes, stirring after each minute.
