I went to the advanced search on SparkRecipes and plugged in peas as side dish and here is the link to the list it gave me: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipes.asp?

You can do the same for carrots. Some of the recipes are not the common peas we're discussing here, but there are some interesting ideas here for you, and maybe if you tell him "this is a different kind of pea, at least try it" you'll be able to expand his horizons! There are so many choices out here, he is really missing out on a lot of things by being so restricted in his eating. Remind him too that our taste buds change as we mature and sometimes things we couldn't stand in our younger days become one of our favorites as adults. Good luck!

Alas, I'm not much better than your boyfriend as those are basically the two veggies I eat all the time. Maybe get the single servings for him and then fix the veggie you want. I know it's a bit of extra work, but the rest of the meal is the same. Good luck.

I just sneak them into casseroles or soups. They can be chopped up fine enough that funny stuff does not show. I cook in tomato sauces as well. The red and spices covers up those veggies.

Hello! I'm new around here, but I have a question. My boyfriend and I cook healthy dinners, but we have problems with vegetables. The problem is...he doesn't like them. The only vegetables he eats are peas, corn, and bland salads. While I love peas and corn, steaming up peas and corn for every meal is getting boring. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make peas and corn more interesting? Or does anyone with kids have ways to prepare vegetables that your kids love? :)
