Double The Deliciousness

Add a can of veggies, such as corn or green beans, to a can of soup—or onions, peppers and/or mushrooms to that jar of spaghetti sauce.

Create Yummy Rainbow Lasagna

Tuck shredded carrots, sliced yellow peppers and chopped spinach into each layer for a rainbow of flavors. For pickier palates, add pureed vegetables to the sauce.

This one is for getting the kids involved. “Paint” your pizza with peppers, broccoli, spinach and pineapple.

Try A Favorite Dish In A New Way

Serve spaghetti squash instead of pasta, topped with your favorite sauce and diced vegetables.

Sumptuous Soups

Whip up homemade soups from pureed cooked veggies, livened up with a handful of herbs and thinned with a little canned vegetable or chicken broth.

Remember, All Forms Count

All fruits and veggies count towards your daily intake—so, add frozen to canned, and fresh to frozen—mix and match!
