Veggies. These fiber rich foods are oh so good for you, but oh so hard to get your kids to eat it. At least that’s what I gather from the dozens of messages I get from all of you. If you’ve followed my blog or social media you’ll see I try to offer my kids veggies at every meal. I came up with this hidden veggie egg salad recipe while trying to fulfill this goal. It was one of those days where I knew we would be home late for lunch and I had to prepare something quickly. I boiled some eggs in the morning with the plan of making egg salad. Then, as expected when I got home, had not much time before nap time. I looked in the refrigerator, combined a few things and voilà, almost all the food groups in one bite.
Tip: You can also just steam some cauliflower and smash it, or cook some rice cauliflower with a little olive oil.
Hidden Veggie Egg Salad
- 1 egg boiled
- 1 tbs. mayonnaise
- 1 tbs. avocado
- 1-2 tsp. riced cauliflower steamed
- Paprika to taste
- In a bowl, mash the boiled egg
- Add mayo, avocado, cauliflower and mix
- Sprinkle paprika and combine
- Top on bread and serve with chips and fruit
P.S. If you have a super picky toddler with texture issues, you can cut the cauliflower amount to 1/2 tsp., but honestly you can’t hardly taste it! You can also just use avocado only, that in itself has much more nutrients than just mayonnaise.
