Dinnertime can be a real drag. So many questions. So little time. What to serve? Which ingredients do you even have in the pantry? What will the adults love and kids not scrunch their noses at?

The answers aren’t always easy. Especially because, finding a dinner you feel good about serving doesn’t always translate to a meal everyone is cheering over.

Which is why we’ve spent this week focussing on fun ways to enjoy veggies, taking comfort food favorites and giving them a veggie-full upgrade. We’ve premiered our insanely delicious Rainbow Veggie Nachos  and super-quick and simple Quinoa Taco Peppers. Both are family-approved favorites worth trying.

We wrap up our week with a dish full of cheesy, baked enchiladas. Don’t they look delicious? They are! Savory and scrumptious, we had a table full of kids begging for seconds and then thirds. What they didn’t know was that these vegetarian enchiladas also hide a pound or more of broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potato and carrots! Tune in below to see how we hid all of these vegetables inside:
