When I had young children, I would blend carrots in with spaghetti sauce, beans in with chili, etc. No one knew the difference. Today I make the "green drink", a blend of green veggies like kale, cucumber, parsley with apples or banana for the sweet, a bit of ginger root, lemon and lime juice. It's a quick way to drink in lots of veggie power. So a blender might be your friend...

pumpkin and applesauce is also very good in muffins. make a plain yellow cake with a can of mixed fruit in it very good. you can sneak spinach in a chocolate no one will ever know.

There is a recipe in the new Hungry Girl book about some Zucchini muffins! I am not a big fan of squash at all so I am not sure how that works! But you should try it!! Good Luck and keep it up!!

I love pureed vegetables for soups, and with summer fast approaching there will be lots of things at the farmers' markets.
