Spinach #Pesto on Rice never looked so #delicious. Great recipe by @WeeliciousMenus
My greens obsession continues! Can it be challenging to get kids to eat their greens? At times, absolutely. But it can really make a difference when you use your greens in creative ways. Consider pesto . If your little one has an aversion to the color, I say get her involved in making it with you by letting her measure, dump and turn on the food processor. Sure it might make a bit of a mess in the kitchen, and you may have to do a little cajoling here and there, but I promise that when you're done and your youngster can taste how flavorful her creation turned out, that "no green food" face is going to be replaced with a big smile. And don't forget to double the recipe so you always have extra spinach pesto on hand. I find it to be a lifesaver at mealtime. Just store the extra in freezer cubes and all you have to do is defrost one, toss it with pasta, rice, fish or chicken ...
