Vegetable Recipes & Country Crock #veggieworld #spon

 

This post is sponsored by Country Crock. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective, and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.

Dear Creatives, Some of you know I am taking time with Sammie to visit her older siblings & niece who live out of town. One thing I enjoy doing is cooking a healthy meal for everyone. I like trying new recipes that entice the younger crowd to try new veggies! I have come across  two resources that I am using on my trip that I thought I would share them with you, along with my recipe trial.

The Resources:

  1. Clare Cerespo Cookbook where I decided to try one of the recipes to share with you! Clare Cerespo Cookbook is full of fun, whimsical, step-by-step recipes that young families are sure to love, along with others.The recipes are quick, easy & fun to serve. My three favorites are; Beautiful Butterflies page 27, Zucchini Boats page 37 & Cabbage Leaf Presents page 57 & I could go on so cute campfire veggie recipe….
  2. The second resource I have to share is on Country Crock where they have recipes, the Country Crock Chronicles where you can browse articles, along with products & where to buy. I loved browsing their recipes finding some new ones for our family (like this cinnamon roasted sweet potato recipe). The Country Crock Chronicle is an excellent resource for quick, simple tips & recipes to help make serving veggies fun. With Country Crock kids just think veggies are delicious!
  • The recipe I decided to try was the zucchini boats from Clare Cerespo Cookbook.
  • It was super easy to follow.
  • Here are some photos from my trial run, then at the end of post where to get your free recipe book!
First I precooked slightly to enable me to carve out the middle of the zucchini.
Then I scooped out the middles. You can see I scored them a little to have it go quickly. If you do this try not to get near the outside skin. You want your boat intact. No sinkers here! lol
Now in a non stick skillet I just sauteed the veggies including the cut out middles with 2 tablespoons of Country Crock. In another pot I made my brown rice.
Then I mixed them together per recipe directions & filled the boats.
I had a whole ship yard of zucchini boats!
The taste test!
Kid approved! Seriously, I refrained from sharing her eating mouthfuls at a time! No need to hide veggies with Country Crock around! The recipe was super simple to follow & delicious! I could of just ate the sauteed veggies alone with the brown rice it tasted so good sauteed with Country Crock. I found a sweet potato recipe at Country Crock maybe I can get her to like my favorite potato next!
