Hidden veggies in tomato sauce!

March 30, 2014

Hidden zucchinis to be specific.   And not for the kids.   Nope, it is for dear hubby El Cubano that is  a little scared of whatever is green in his plate.   Well, good challenge for me!  I tricked him and I won!   The sweet victory, there is nothing like it!

Hidden veggies

Last time that I gave a try to add some green, it was with my green smoothie.  I wanted to trick him but when he saw it and asked what was in it, I said the truth and asked him to try…  Mhhh well, it did not work!  Sight.

So this time, he asked, I said nothing, the usual.  Ok, good.   After, after cleaning up his plate with his fork, I confessed…  I am not going to lie, he felt deceived but eh that was for a good cause!

Give it a try, it is really a good lie!

  3. - Add the herbs, salt and pepper to taste.
  4. - I chose to blend the sauce with hand blender to hide it better.
