Hidden veggies: asparagus
Power ingredients: brown rice, quinoa, salmon, eggs
Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables. However, it can be quite fibrous for some palates. As you know, I am constantly on a mission to see how to make such vegetables more 'palatable'. The other day, my son randomly goes, "Mommy, I am getting a hang of this green stuff - he was of course referring to the kale and basil pasta that both my kiddos ADORE and secondly, the green smoothie with spinach, honey, bananas, walnuts and strawberry yogurt.
So, a lightbulb went on! Duh - why can't you have green rice? Of course you can. I have learned that the best way to please your child's or husband's (well there's a story here - my mister didn't know the difference between ginger and garlic until I kept adding it to the grocery list and quizzed him on it; I would ask him to help me get ginger from the fridge until one day finally it dawned on him that the onion looking bulb thingy is garlic and the root looking thingy is ginger. Phew, hey one battle at a time, right? :) )

And yes, my favorite partner is my 7 year old - he just wants to be a famous "cooker" like Bobby Flay. Call me a bad mom, but I don't correct him. Isn't 'cooker' SO much cuter than the stuck up 'chef' ;)
Hope you get to try this out! I would love some feedback, so don't forget to leave a comment. Thanks for visiting this blog!!
