For those interested in getting more vegetables into meat or carbohydrates, shred! For example, shred any or all of the following: carrots, zucchini, onion, broccoli and put into meatloaf, pasta sauce, any pasta dish, stew, soups, etc. This is an especially effective method for getting people who claim they don't like veggies to eat them.
You can also add these vegetables to pasta and add a protein. Use any or all of the following. I shred them in a food processor, but if you don't have one, a box shredder will work.
Broccoli stems (peel outer layer)
Any hard veggie
Cook in a bit of butter or olive oil, add salt. For variety, add lemon and/or lemon zest or saute garlic.
Squash and Carrots
Acorn or any variety of squash, peeled
Olive oil and/or butter
Lemon juice and zest
Shred squash and carrots, sauté and add remaining ingredients to taste.
