Trick my kids to take more veggie: part 1

When I run out of idea what soup to boil for my kids, and I still want them to take more vegetable, I would resort to spaghetti in vegetable pasta source.  
1. Onions, garlics and tomatoes.  Mix them with half cup of water and blend them in the blender for only 10 seconds.
 2. Cut carrots into smaller cubes.
 3. Blanch potatoes in a pot of hot water for 10 minutes. Remove skin and cut into cubes.
4. Heat up oil in wok, put #2 and #3 in the work, stir fry for 5 minutes, then put #1 and continue to stir fry until it boiled.

5. I didn't put in any seasoning like salt or sugar, but 5 tablespoons of mushroom pasta source for better taste.
 Spaghetti in vegetable pasta source is always healthy for kids.
I felt so satisfying, when seeing them down with lots and lots vegetable pasta source.

  12. SK, what you said is true also. I saw them picking up veggie from their plates also. Next time, I may blend all of them.

    Bananaz and Shireen, it was indeed a very big plate, as I have concern that they might get hungry very soon, because of no meat in the diet.

  13. Hi Sheoh Yan, love this posting, and your spaghetti looks really delicious, can see your 2 dolls enjoying it.
    Love the pic of your onions, so clear and vivid colours. Like 3D!

    For some reason or other I have never gone overboard for spaghetti, and like you, my wife to tempt me to eat....she loves it....will put tau gay or bean sprouts, then I'll eat, ha ha.

    She will say I'm the only one in the world world eat this with bean sprouts.
    Your two daughters very pretty, some day they going to give boys heart bypass ha ha.....they have their mom's traffic stopper looks, ha ha.
    You have a nice day, Sheoh Yan, stay young.
    Lee.

  17. I even add greens (chopped celery or spinach or green capsicum) into the spaghetti that I cook haha. I'm obsessed with veggies too. I don't mind if Chloe doesn't eat meat but she MUST eat veggies. Sounds crazy, hor?
